Hello Everyone,

 

I found this old post about Freedome and BBC iPlayer. As mentioned in the BBC iPlayer Help page, if they detect that you might be using a VPN, you'll be unable to play programmes.

Well, d'oh, we know that, surely.

There is no need to be rude.  Some of us it’s not as straight forward as that

I am aware that the BBC uses complex algorithims to block access and it can be difficult for VPN service providers to keep up.

 

However, some VPN providers (such as NordVPN) guarantee iPlayer access and have always managed to enable access- even if they are temporarily blocked they solve the problem.

 

Access to BBC iPlayer is a very big factor in me choosing Freedome.  If this continues to be blocked then I am unlikey to remaina customer as Freedome certainly isn't the cheapest VPN solution.

 

Therefore could a forum moderator / staff memeber conform that F-Secure will always try to guarantee access to iplayer where a technical solution exists ?  In this case, there is clearly a technical soultion as NordVPN allows access !

 

Thanks.
