Are you using a UK Sky card in a spare box in Spain?

Hi, No I use the Sky Go app on my laptop signed into my daughters account. I use a firestick and a Now Tv box to watch BBC, ITV etc on my TV with a VPN router , I cant get any of the programs to work ? Is anybody else having the same problem?

They may have caught on to your VPN's IP address in the UK and disallow everything from that address.

I use transponder.tv which doesn't need a VPN. It doesn't sound as easy to use as your set up as you need a browser to watch although they're trialling an Android app.

Ok Thank you DLC ... Not sure what to do other than try and buy another VPN

If you have Android available to you either box or tablet look up an apk for uktv & radio. You can get all standard uk channels + without need for vpn. It works better if you also have an adblocker. Also with a vpn I find NowTV box is fine. You can add nowtv to an Android box as an app or add the individual uk tv catch up apps like iplayer, itv Hub 4 now etc also but they need a vpn, the one you have may well be fine for that. Nowtv you need an account set up but that can be done without cost.
