BBC iPlayer launches offence against VPN users

You might have encountered an issue getting access to iPlayer recently. This is because the BBC has started blocking a wide range of IP addresses belonging to many VPN services worldwide. This has sadly affected our UK servers as well, but rest assured that we’re working hard on a solution.

The BBC have announced they plan to offer a code-based system to allow Brits abroad access to iPlayer but as this requires a law change both in the UK and EU it is unlikely to come any time soon with some point in 2016 quoted as a possibility.

    I understand that this must be frustrating for you, as it is for us. iPlayer is the main reason we use our VPN. Having just signed up for a 6 month contract, is there any form of compensation for those affected by this?


  2. Trev says:

    Thanks for getting it sorted! No need to worry about compensation as it was fixed swiftly.

    Still can’t get BBC. Can’t connect to any SurfStreaming connections either.
