BBC sites / iPlayer

Postby TorreDelAguila » Wed Nov 01, 2017 10:02 am

Have been unable to fire up bbc.co.uk pages, or iPlayer, yesterday and today.
No go on PC, iOS or Fire TV box.
All usual bits working ok, as are other channels.
On Fire TV, selecting iPlayer just produces a black screen.

Anyone else with similar?

Works OK on my Android phone but not on my LG Smart TV or my NowTV box.

Same here this Morning.
I've changed to Unblockus and that's working.

I've found switching over to Smarty VPN (set to London) works.
