Why am I unable to access Yle Areena (areena.yle.fi) when using F-Secure Freedome VPN or Privacy VPN on F-Secure Total?
Yle has blocked users from viewing streaming content when connected through a VPN. We can unfortunately do nothing to change this, as it is YLE's decision to decide who can access the service.
You can read more about this on Yle's web pages and in their FAQ: https://ukk.yle.fi/hc/fi/articles/4405564475805-Areenan-suorat-ei-k%C3%A4ynnisty-jos-VPN-on-k%C3%A4yt%C3%B6ss%C3%A4
However, according to this article, if you register for a Yle Tunnus (username and password) you can watch Yle Areena content in EU countries as long as your home address is in Finland.
