Iplayer available or being blocked?

    Not sure if this is the right forum as very hard to find forums now that people are posting in and viewing.

    I always had access to the iplayer through a dns service. First the iplayer stopped working on my LG tv and now in the last few months it no longer works on my Firestick.

    I love the documentaries and nature series on the iplayer and it seems the bbc are cracking down on tv apps.

    I still have it working on my phone and tablet.

    Any ideas? PM if necessary.

    Thanks & Happy Xmas

    I can watch bbc 1 hour a day using a website free, more time means having to pay a subscription see link below, You have to put in email adress, make a password to use the free service loads of UK TV channels or Google UK TV online service it has a UK TV guide too

    I think it's just live TV

    there's plenty of websites that allow you to watch UK, USA TV Live free there's also a t mucho android app if you don't want to use the browser try it from the browser to see if it works first, just click on BBC 2 , 1 etc

    My issue is that I can't even launch the app on my tv, firestick nor freesat box. I just get a blank screen, or the middle of the screen is blurred. It just seems the app is unable to launch. So I don't think it is an internet issue or geoblocking issue as the app isn't even launching.
