Question

BBC iPlayer proxy blocking

Is BBC iPlayer blocking all of your IP ranges? I had an Ubuntu 14.04 SOCKS5 proxy running for two years and it recently started to be blocked by BBC iPlayer. I have tried over 50 droplets with that image and they all block. Proxy works fine for other sites. Do I need to set up an image on a newer distro or are all of your IP ranges blocked?

I ended up using the Hola browser plugin on Chrome for iPlayer access. You may have to click through a few proxies to get one that works and it isn’t super stable. ITV still works from a DO proxy.
