After a lot of assistance from the Slingshot customer support I Managed to use my new Slingshot fibre account for the first time at home yesterday evening.
I was delighted to see that BBC iplayer on my Samsung Smart TV was now working, Three cheers for Global mode.
However testing other devices had some rather puzzling results:
BBC iplayer App on Samsung tablet
live streaming worked but watching older programs did not. Downloading seemed to work.
BBC iplayer radio App on both smart phone and tablet
Live streaming of radio shows would not work.
streaming of older programs did work.
Prior to switching to slingshot and having global mode I could stream radio programs live from BBC iplayer radio app and listen to older shows.
Also the tablet play store didn't find the BBC iplayer app or the itv player App for updates or download, so it looks like I was still geo blocked from this content.?
Has anyone else experienced any similar issues and offer a solution??
