What is going on with this? Can not log in to Swedish TV4 play when VPN is active! As i dont live in sweden if I turn off VPN I am geoblocked! Is Freedome VPN blocked by TV4? If that is the case then i have no use for Freedome anymore

    Hello @Keki

    Thank you for your post.

    Regarding your question streaming services such as TV4 Play have blocked the usage of VPNs. This can be a result of local content agreements that do not allow the program to be viewed outside the country where the rights have been sold to.


    However you can attempt to reset the DNS cache on your computer if using Windows.


    How to reset DNS cache on a Windows computer

    1. Open the command prompt as an administrator.

    2. In the Command prompt, type the command below. After each command, press Enter to execute.

    • ipconfig /flushdns
    • netsh winsock reset
    • netsh int ipv6 reset

    3. Restart your machine and check again.

    Hello @marmab

    Thank you for the answer

    Tested HOLA VPN (free) client and it works just fine with TV4 play service so i don´t think that is the problem, or then they just blocked "some" VPN-clients, but i will try resetting DNS later today when i get home from work.
