We watch iplayer all the time from Spain and last night from about 5 pm it stopped working. It would not work from my PC either with f-secure vpn. They did an update with the London server or something to make it faster and I think something went wrong then. I am also having problems the Do4 on Ipad, keep getting an error, do you use this app?
We are in Murcia region and we have been here a year and we love it. Channel 4 on Demand 4oD. If you have a PC you can you use hola.org and get bbc iplayer that way (it is free). I checked this morning and that is working fine, so I will be able to watch the 2 episodes of Eastenders that is on tonight.
Thank you both for reporting that. This is a known issue, related as you have seen in this thread, to the IP geolocation.
We are working on it.
The correct location has now been added to the RIPE database for our UK virtual location. While we cannot affect how quickly BBC's geolocation service picks up the data from RIPE, we certainly hope it won't take more than a few days. Many of the geolocation services already recognize our UK addresses as being in the UK.
