Re: Dynasties in UHD on BBC Iplayer

Obviously there is so little UHD content on the BBC that it’s difficult to have a clear picture what works with what. To watch Dynasties, i need to use SmartDNS as both Unblockus and Smarty throw up an error message. Another problem I get is that for some reason, I cannot access Netflix or BBC 4K on...

Re: 4G umlimited data sim?

If you are based in the EU, use your ISP from wherever you are based.
I use tethering. A couple of years ago, I took out a month deal with 3 and was told it wasn’t possible to tether. However, for some reason it tethered with no problem

Re: Linea Directa

My son's Insurance came up for renewal with LD in October and just over 500 Euros. As my son is now over 25.I spoke to them and made the point that now as he is an experienced driver I shouldn't have to pay a premium for his age. At first they said no but as soon as I mentioned I am looking at other...

Re: Fire Stick IPTV

To buy the Spanish version and to get that offer, you need to change to the Spanish site.
The £49.99 version on the UK site is the new 4K one and the one on the Spanish site is a different version, advertised at £39.99 on the UK site.

It won't work without a DNS and a UK subscription. If you just want the Spanish Amazon prime and maybe Netflix, buy the Spanish version of the Fire stick

Re: Fire Stick IPTV

Sign up for a few different DNS severs and they will offer free introductory periods, which should keep you going for about a month. If you don’t sign up straight away for any, after a few days you will start to receive some offers and might even be offered a year’s subscription for as little as 20 ...

Re: BBC Sounds App for Android

Have you tried using a VPN? Then if you resign in to Google play, it should go to the UK version.
Apart from this, you could google it and download and install it manually from a third party site.

If there was a discount on condition that the insurance was taken out with the bank, there might be some sort of penalty if you cancel it

Re: Fire Stick IPTV

My Fire TV works really well and the reviews for the 4K stick are saying it's even better still. With the fire stick you install apps and watch content on them Catch-up apps offers high quality pictures for all the BBC channels and live TV on the ITV app albeit at a slight lower but acceptable quali...

Dynasties in UHD on BBC Iplayer

If you have the correct equipment it is possible to watch this series In UHD using the Iplayer. For me it only works using Smart DNS, not Smarty, on the PS4 but it is not possible on my Samsung TV or Fire tv.
I think it will work on newer Samsung TVs and other brands of 4K TVs.

Re: BEING SPANISH & GETTING UK PENSION

So how would that work? I see on the UK government website that you need to be national of the new country before it's possible to denounce UK citizenship.
Would it be possible to tell Spain you are going to give up your UK ine then renegade on that promise and not go through with it?

Re: Samsung Smart TV - change Apps region

A DNS service is not the same as a VPN because it only changes the Apps or websites it has been programmed to change. As a result, it will not affect anything else. For example, it will make an American and UK site available while maintaining access to Spainish sites all at the same time. On the oth...

Re: Samsung Smart TV - change Apps region

That's interesting so your LG TV changes depending on certain conditions. Are you using a VPN in your network or DNS server?

The OP asked about Samsung TVs which need to go through a different process.

I use Sky go on my son's Play station, apart from a PC, the only way it's possible to watch on a big screen. Quality is great, much better than a standard definition Digi box but probably not as good as...
