Does it help if you turn off Tracking Protection in Freedome and retry?
Hi thanks for the advice but already tried this and no luck. I temporarily tried Tunnelbear vpn and this still works. I can only assume Sky are latching on to the endpoint IPs and are building up a database of these, I believe TB change the IPs regularly and Sky have not caught up eith these yet.. BT sport already manage to block due to the fact you have to have your ipones location enabled even though you have the vpn enabled. Doh!
I see. Thanks for keeping us posted, T3chno.
