RAI - watching Italian TV from abroad - iOS



I come back with this topic, as I  bought F-Secure Freedome in order to have a VPN and watch the Italian TV channels RAI.

There are a couple of other old topics about this issue, but I saw no working solution in them (cleaning the cache, disabling the location and so on). 

Background: I want to use my iOS device (iOS version 10) to stream the programmes with the RAI app. When opening, the app says that it seems I am abroad (I am trying to connect from France through the Italian IP of Freedome). Any working solutions?


Thank you in advance.

    Hello ARFsecure,


    We checked with our Freedome team on RAI and Freedome. It is seen that RAI is actively blocking the VPN users and we are unable to do much about it.

    Hello ARFsecure,


    Did it help if you disable the location on your iOS device?


  • No, it was already disabled, and it seems it was not the cause of the problem (or, at least, not the only one)

  • No suggestions?


    By the way, I installed the app in an Android device (7.0), and the result is the same ... the app RaiPlay informs that I am trying a connection from abroad ...

    Either RaiPlay identifies a connection from a VPN trying to bypass the regional constraint, or Freedome does not work in both iOS and Android ...

  • Ok, thank you for the feedback
