    For those who tried a VPN and it still didn't work check with your supplier that you can use a VPN as many suppliers don't automatically allow use of a VPN

    I wouldn't panic yet, unless your desperate to see the Sunday games. (go to the pub)

    The providers will get a solution. Most of these people are re-sellers anyway, so its out of their hands!

    The current solutions are short term fixes, that may cost you unnecessarily.

    Sit tight.

    Totally agree, it's up to supplier to put vpn at source, then it goes to buyer through vpn ,so buyer should not be out of pocket.

    Ive read through the response regarding the iptv and installing a vpn, does anyone know how to install a vpn to a zgemma??

    I have a Nordvpn subscription, not sure if it makes any difference what the provider is called??

    Even though the channels are back on, id still like to try installing so that im ready for tomorrows game.

    What you mean mate you turned it off on the router as its hammering your bandwidth,ive heard it slows your connection which cant be good for streaming which is why im abit apprehensive on getting a vpn that could hinder my connection.

    I bought two new MAG256 boxes a few weeks back, both have the same portal links from the same provider, one of the boxes was sent one to Spain last week, my MAG256 went off today at around 12 ish, the other box out in Spain had no problem at all, working without any issues, so the problem is definitely a UK ISP blocking issue, I will be looking at a VPN solution I think?

    The better VPN's won't slow your speed nearly as much as the free ones, I have been using vpn's for years for downloading and for streaming on kodi.

    The vpn route may be a little more complicated not to mention expensive for people with mag boxes or smart tv app. As I understand it they will require a vpn router to plug into their existing sly or virgen router then either wi fi or ethernet to tv or box. I have just been advised that for the router to work efficiently with iptv it should have an absolute minimum spec of a dual core 800 mhz cpu and preferably for best results 1600 - 1800mhz. I hate to say but these are expensive (around £150) then you also have to get a decent vpn licence. As some people have said may be best not to rush in and make an unwise purchase if the problem can be sorted the other end. Obviously people with other hardware have cheaper options.

    Do you have to have a VPN compatible router for this to work?

    no , your putting the vpn on your box/device.

    I am also using NordVpn with a zgemma. I downloaded the .OVPN configuration files from NordVpn but there is no crt file or any reference for any UK servers ovpn files, how did you get yours working?
