Here we go again!
To quote @Jason_G "The Bose Alexa skill will be available to Alexa users that have Alexa enabled products set to US English only."
I assume thats a sly way of saying its only available in the US!
That is just plain daft, if you have ever programmed a skill you would understand why, English US and English GB are the same! You just have to copy and paste the code into English (UK) and replace US for GB e.g. AMAZON.US_FIRST_NAME with AMAZON.GB_FIRST_NAME, hardly rocket science!
I can understand that languages such as French and German would take longer as the external development team are based in the US but come on...
Why do you never learn from past failures? you've been promising everyone this for years, but yet again you are providing to the US customer base and ignoring others...
The SONOS Alexa skill may not be perfect, but at least they treated all customers equal.
It is a lot of hassle and it shouldn't be.
Most people aren't going to have a US address for their Amazon account anyway
Luckily I have one but if the firmware update tomorrow doesn't address the other issues I have been experiencing then I'm done with it as well.
Good luck with whatever you choose next
