Been using express vpn for 14 months now. Very reliable. Which is good cause we dont have Canadian TV at all.

Just opened an account with them and setup for router access but BBC Iplayer detects the VPN. You accessing it another way?

PureVPN seens to be working again, both through the Chrome app and the dedicated IP mode. Hopefully it lasts.

Try using Hoxx add on for Chrome and firefox. Quite a few Canadians use it. also , TVCatchup - Channels for most UK channels. no VPN needed currently. Works well here.

For several years I've been using Primewire in its various forms mainly for movies (and occasional TV) and Watch Series (various urls) for TV.

I recently came across my 4th or 5th version of WS and it seems to be the easiest for navigation and quality.

Last night I watched Strike: The Cucckoo's Calling which has just disappeared from iPlayer and I have Strike: The Silkworm lined up, which is still on iPlayer.

Rellik, which I have been watching on iPlayer is bang up to date on WS and, to be honest, I might finish watching it there rather than iPlayer.

Hoxx is great but whenever I enable it to watch something, I often forget to disable it I don't have to do that with WS

https://watch-series.co/search.html?keyword=rellik

Of course Hoxx has the advantage of allowing live watching if time difference isn't too bad. Very useful if you want to watch MOTD and also torture yourself watching England 'play' football (ITV) when it's not on your TV channels.

The weird thing is the live streaming through BBC or ITV works fine on their sites, its the saved programmes that dont start and seem to know you're behind a dns or VPN. Its all very strange. Unotelly have been totally crap just pretending they're sorting and doing nothing.
