A few days ago i've read that the Grid beta game streaming service at the moment only works in the USA. So I was really surprised to see that it also worked here in Germany.
Can someone confirm this for Germany and maybe other countries.

AFAIK it's available to anyone in beta form, although the servers are in the US. The further away you are the greater the latency.

They say it's based on your connection to the grid servers. I'm guessing it's not as restrictive about latency as they meant for it to be but who knows. I am on the oposite end of the country and I can connect with some slight lag.

I tried it in Sweden. it worked pretty well. sometimes the latency was noticeable but usually the video quality would drop first. playable but not perfect.

Works fine in Norway as well. I've played a couple of games with no major issues. Sometimes i get some input lag.
