Default VPN & Chromecast

Hi,

Does anyone know if the UK shows via an ipad & vpn will work on Chromecast ?

Bought my husband 1 for Christmas & was trying to test it appears Netflix works but UKTV no - any ideas ?

Thanks

Have you read through any of the (many) threads about VPN's? You may find your answer there - first 3 are about chromecast - the 1st one could be just the ticket
Google Chromecast

BBC & ITV not working behind VPN
Any VPNs still work for BBC/ITV?

I have both Chromecast and Apple TV. Not too keen on Chromecast. Much prefer Apple product. Works very well for BBC and ITV Players.

Even if you have a VPN, when you re-route from your device to Chromecast to watch UK programming (eg BBC iPlayer), the wifi-enabled Chromecast device will give away your Canadian IP address and you will be blocked if geo-restrictions are in force. I found natively casting from Chrome browser on computer/laptop/phone to TV works okay. Otherwise watch it on your device.

Can't comment if latest generation of smart TVs with built in apps (eg Roku) will help bypass IP restrictions using your VPN.

Do you have a laptop? Simply plug a hdmi cable from laptop to tv. Get a vpn like Nord, ExpressVPN etc and watch BBC through browser.

Chrome or Opera with the Beebs add on. Works like a charm.

Forgot about Beebs. I dumped Unotelly, talk about useless.

I read somewhere that all the British tv stations are trying to work out how to broadcast a paying subscription for people abroad. Imagine how much the BBC would make for even a small fee.

I thought it had already happened but for somewhat dated output.

Thanks all, i have a laptop & vpn setup & yes have connected with hdmi cable works a treat
Just wondered if you could stream from the ipad to the tv using the chromecast (save all the cable hassle), but that sounds like a no then
IF BBC or ITV had a paid subscription i would GLADLY pay for it
