bbc iplayer on demand but no live tv

Postby tanguera » Mon Apr 03, 2023 4:03 pm

Hi...Posting to see if anyone has had the same problem. Using firestick (4K) for TV with Nord vpn. Everything works except BBC live TV channels- Error code comes up. We can watch iplayer for catchup programs with no issues but live won´t function w/out the error code. Tried clearing iplayer cache no difference. If anyone has any idea why live won´t work I´d greatly appreciate some feedback. Thanks

Hi again. I´ve possibly found the solution to my problem above. If I load up the BBC channel on iplayer but wait a short period (say 30/40 seconds) then press PLAY the live BBC TV channels will play every time. Previously, I would do the above but press PLAY immediately causing an error code every time. I´was wondering if it might be because BBC live streams need to preload a certain amount of data before being able to be played? No idea but just glad it now works without error code. If anything changes I´ll post again. Fingers crossed...
