Is BBC now blocking iPlayer access to Freedome users?
Since yesterday (6th October) I have been unable to access the BBC iPlayer from France via Freedome running on my MacBook. Is this a known issue?
I am running Mac OS Sierra and Freedome 1.6.3289.0
The same issue occurs using both Firefox and Safari
I am not aware of any changes/updates to my configuration between the time I was last able to access iplayer (2 days ago) and now
Edit to Add: Other UK video sites are still fully accessible - this problem only affects my access to BBC iPlayer
When I connect to the iPlayer site *without* Freedome enabled the site loads & works correctly but I am of course unable to watch any videos due to the geo-restrictions. The site homepage appears as follows:
When I enable Freedome, most images are then blank and menu options (eg "Channel") on the page no longer work or appear as if some script has failed to load. Specific programmes can be accessed via the direct links but then the video player simply does not start, again as if the page element is blocked. The same homepage looks as follows:
Interestingly I do appear to be able to access iPlayer via the iPhone app.
Can someone from F-Secure please advise?
