Somebody just posted this on the FB Expat page:

Hi -- Thanks for reaching out. We're aware of the current issue with Expat Shield, and we apologize for the inconvenience. Unfortunately, we have a server issue in the UK, so UK servers are redirecting to the US. The issue will be fixed this week. Sorry again for the inconvenience.

Thanks,
The AnchorFree Team

Does anyone know when the Expat Shield will be back up? I just tried it and it is not working yet.

This is the latest status update on their Facebook page


The needed hardware piece is now at location and awaiting installation. Hopefully everything will be back online soon (possible a bit longer than the promised 24 hours). Again, very sorry for any service interruption. Stay tuned - we'll update the this wall once the installation/testing is done and everything is up and running.

New FB status.


Still working on getting the new hardware up (ran into few issues), but please be assured, work is in progress. We wish we could speed up the process, but at this time we have to wait until everything is fixed before going back online with ExpatShield. We are also working on procedure steps to make sure such long outages never happen again.

What about itv Player?

I wonder if the BBC have done something to block it as we are (obviously) not paying for TV licences?? I have wondered about that in the past........

I just tried ITV player and Seesaw, both say I cannot watch as I am not in the UK, so not working in Australia at all still.

FBHost is still working for BBC.

Usually needs a reload or close the page that says it's not a valid link and just click again.
