    Hello, 

     

    Thank you all for reporting us the issue and sharing your feedback as well.  For last few weeks we experienced an issue with our Norwegian server and Norwegian live TV Streaming website. We also received more requests to fix the issue at least for nrk.no. We can confirm that the issue is now fixed and you should be able to watch Nrk.no abroad when F-Secure Freedome is set in Oslo.

     

    Nowadays, it is becoming increasingly common for media steaming websites to block viewers who use VPNs bypass geo-restrictions placed on their services. Prime examples include Hulu, US Netflix, and BBC iPlayer. 


    The reason for such blocks is almost always because copyright holders want to maximize their profits by artificially segregating the world market. 

     

    We expect customers to respect the terms of third-party services that they access via our services. The Terms of Service for F-Secure Freedome can be found here: https://www.f-secure.com/en/web/legal_global/terms/freedome

    Seems as if NRK have implemented VPN blocking. Other Geoblocking sites like HBO Norway still works. Hopefully Freedome can establish new IP addresses that are not blocked.

  • I have the same problem. The only reason I am subscribing to Freedome is to have access to Norwegian TV channels (NRK). I still had the connection on Wednesday 20 Feb.  Any advice or solutions to this? Freedome, please do something!

  • I have for this just for watching nrk.no live tv due to that I don't live in norway. It has worked perfectly until now.

     

    Before did it register as: Oslo Portlane AB

     

    Now it registers as: Stockholm GleSYS Internet Services AB

     

    Oslo capital of Norway works great, Stockholm capital of Sweden won't work as Norway.......no need to be a professor to understand that.

    Same problem. I’m now using a free Windscribe vpn. The only reason for subscribing to Freedome is to watch NRK.no.

  • The free Windscribe vpn works! Thanks! This should mean that F-Secure must be able to make the connection work again. I hope they are reading this.

  • i also have the same problem 

    i just checked my  download speed 

    with BREDBANDSKOLLEN and this is the result

    25 februari 2019, 11:02 – StockholmGleSYS Internet Services AB
     55.82 Mbit/s  5.85 Mbit/s  35.19 ms
    this first one is vpn set in sweden 
    25 februari 2019, 11:01 – StockholmGleSYS Internet Services AB
     56.14 Mbit/s  6.23 Mbit/s  59.47 ms
    and this one is set in norway 
    so it's obviousy something wrong with freedome now after changing from Portlane to GleSYS. 
    i bought freedome just for watching NRK.no, on my computer running Win 10 really hope
    F-Secure  fix this problem very soon

  • Hi. I was in a similar situation as you,nrk.no doesnt work and I though I wanted more security while connecting to public Wi-Fi's. I did my research and found VeePN to tick all the boxes I need. I am using it for several months now and even though it was a bit of trouble setting it up on Linux, because they don't have a native app, the speeds are surprisingly good.
