Are you talking about on demand or live or both? What is the error message you are getting?

I find Nord works very well with the Firestick BBC Iplayer apk for on demand. As mentioned in an earlier post, live does not work for me.

Have had occasional issues when using the generic android Iplayer apk. Usually resolved by clearing the cache and restarting the VPN.

SmartDNSProxy, but as mentioned before it will play one episode, then fail on the second one until you quit out of the app and go back in (or clear the app cache). Works fine on the Android and web versions, I'm not sure what's different about the Firestick app.

Does anyone have my 5 working on the fire stick?

The file linked one doesnt work. When I down load it, it seems to be a touch version and with mouse toggle it still doesnt seem to work.

is there a fire stick version?

There's an official firestick version in amazon appstore and a version in the FireTVSticks[1] filelinked store (see FAQ in first post)

Unfortunately the side-loaded one in FireTVSticks is now closing and asking to update to latest version. I've asked FireTVSticks owner to update the version in her filelinked.

Can I ask, is that the firestick app?

I got mine yesterday and have Surfshark on it. I can run iplayer through Firefox (and on my phone) no probs, but the firestick app keeps giving me errors (02001 which I think is the geolocking detection)

I tried the android app through Tanya but it's out of date so won't run at all

Has anyone gotten the iPlayer to work with Nord VPN?
I have the app installed and vpn set to UK but the iPlayer never works, I always get an error with it.

yep, the firestick (4k) iplayer app.

I think netflix isn't working though - i set server to colorado or somewhere without a heavy load on it, when i go start netflix, i see a lot of blank tiles where movies / programmes should be but clicking on them doesn't launch the title....

Yes the latest version of the firestick app on FILELINKED generally works well with NORD. Watched a lot of the Glastonbury stuff last night without any issues.

What's your issue? Any particular error?

I'd suggest trying different UK servers on NORD.

One thing I do find is that there can be issues if you watch part of a show and then try to "resume" from where you left off next day. If that happens I usually close the app and clear the cache.
