I got that as well, tried ITV and that worked. Had a quick glance at the bbc faq and it says they try to block vpn's but I'd guess there's a workaround. Only have it 5 mins myself and am interested in being able to access bbc iplayer too

Ok I managed to get it to work on my PC by logging in to the app on windows store. I clicked on servers, hit the streaming tab at the top and selected bbc iplayer.

It still didn't work on Chrome but did on Firefox, so I may just need to clear my cache on Chrome. You do need to have a bbc account but I just used a random valid postcode. I used a London postcode rather than the usual northern Ireland one.

Point to note, I had logged in on my browser earlier, but when I installed the app, it also counted as a device so there are now 2 devices in my account for the VPN so I will need to delete the earlier one to free up a slot. Not a big deal but just a heads up if you are setting up a few devices tonight.

After installing on my PC, it says I have 4 slots out of 5 available, i.e. up to 5 devices in total.

5 devices per sub. You can add additional slots per account but it's far far cheaper to sign up to the deal again with a different email address for the €14 deal

Bought, downloaded the Windows app as mentioned above, all golden. Got 3 minutes into an iPlayer episode and now seemingly no server will connect. Anyone having similar issues before I do a paypal chargeback?
