bbc iPlayer is blocking my f-freedom VPN

I live in the Netherlands and want to be abIe to see abc player. However after I haver changed my location to the UK and checked the registration with the BBC iplayer the VPN is blocked. I have re-installed the VPN but still the iplayer does not work. Can you give me the right instructions?

    Please try this following steps,

    1. Switch it off and back on
    2. Use a browser instead of an app
    3. Restart your browser
    4. Clear your cookies
    5. Update your browser's geolocation data.

    I think it might help you.

    This worked for a little while, but does not work anylonger.

    Looks like something is able to find our true location. When is Freedome going to fix this problem. It is ongoing now for quite a while. Result is that Freedome is of no use at the moment.

    Yes but are there better options? Other vpn providers who do a better job?

    Seems BBC have sussed the London Location of Freedome VPN. Looks like Freedome is going to have to be more flexable in future. I used cmd prompt and insterted "ipconfig/flushnds" to no effect. cleared the browser too on Edge, Firefox and Google Chrome. Hola doesnt work either!

    Same problem here. Not working on mobile or PC. Have cleared cookies and history, tried incognito and edge. Nothing gives. Can @f-secure update the London address if it has been blacklisted?

    I agree. They need to find a solution for this problem.

    Have everybody in Freedome subcome to the Coronavirus or just to an over consumtion of that rubbish beer Corona?

    Still not working for iplayer. I hope that they fix this quickly as this is the only reason for having the VPN and so if they cant get this right then I will cancel and go elsewhere.
