Well I've been able to randomly get the BBC website to load with Chrome and even have it start playing but it just drops out after a few minutes and goes back to This site can't be reached etc

Yes, I'm talking to the IP provider at the moment, they're fixing their side.

This is what I get now

This site can’t be reached www.bbc.co.uk unexpectedly closed the connection.

I've tried reloading the page for about 10 minutes but it hasn't changed

Edit: ITV redirect is doing the same now but I'll keep trying with both

When you use the BBC redirect the ITV webpage loads and vice versa
Hi Nick,

I've the same problems today,

BBC
And iPlayer

Hi Nick,
is there any time horizon for when you expect the BBC via browser, BBC iPlayer and ITV will work. ?

Regards
Frank.

It's working sometimes (on version 4.11.4) but there's another error our provider needs to fix. Hopefully today!

Should be starting to work now.

Download version 4.11.4 and redirect 'Watch BBC iPlayer'. The BBC iPlayer downloads should work on this too.

Well the page loaded and started playing OK then got to 45% download before dropping out. I was getting "This content doesn't seem to be working ... try again' for a while but I just kept reloading and it started playing again.

But this is what it was doing before so not much has changed unfortunately :(

Edit to add: Download has crashed and won't start up again even if I remove it and try downloading from the beginning

And now this is back: This site can’t be reached www.bbc.co.uk unexpectedly closed the connection.

4.11.4 don't work at all with BBC website, iPlayer, and also https://www.euronews.com/live and https://www.aljazeera.com/live/ don't work by Redirect All Computer Uk London.

Went back to 4.11.3 and can now watch euronews and aljazeera again by Redirect All Computer Uk London - but not BBC at all.

Frank, the only reason it's worked in the past when going to UK, London is by chance - but now they've blocked that IP address. But you have to select 'Watch BBC iPlayer' to make it work as that gets around it.
I had no trouble getting Aljezerra and Euronews working on 4.11.4 - nothing changed there anyway.

Hello Nick,
I have once again installed the new version and this time the BBC works via iPlayer, also Euronews as well as aljazeera via Uk london, I hope it continues like this.
Have a good day.

Good, yes it just needs to be consistent. I'm keeping an eye on it and hassling the provider when it's not working to fix things.

It would be nice if it was possible to access this address via redirect all computer London Uk?
