Internet providers block IPTV services

We would like to inform our customers and interested parties that, due to the current corona crisis, some Internet providers (ISP) have blocked certain IP addresses in their system. The German-speaking countries (Germany, Austria, Switzerland) are locked not affected. In order to avoid the blockage, the DNS address must be changed in the router / modem. If this did not help, we recommend using a VPN service that sets the IP address to a different location.

Use VPN

Install a VPN service that offers a dedicated IP address to alternatively bypass the block. We recommend using NordVPN. The provider NordVPN has been at the top of the VPN providers for years. With the help of NordVPN you can surf the internet securely and anonymously, as well as bypassing the internet provider. When using a VPN in connection with IPTV, care should be taken that a dedicated IP address is used, as otherwise access may be blocked.
