Hi all,

 

I'm part way through my trial of Kayo Sports out of Australia so far I am really loving it. I have it working perfectly on our computer that is connected in the lounge to the TV and amp etc. I'm using DNS4ME to access the service

 

I am wondering if anyone has had any luck in getting the mobile app on their phone as google geo restrict access to the app and also if you have the app was there anything needed to get it working via Chromecast?

 

Thanks,

 

Scott.

Not sure with Google but on the iPhone you have to create a free OZ iTunes account and then login with that account to be able to access it.  Once done though it'll update automatically.

 

If you don't want to do that you can definitely do a google search for the APK and then install that.

 

I like the quality of Kayosports but finding something is a nightmare, they really need to enable search and or filters to say "only show me rugby" or something.

If you're trying to Chromecast something that's geo-restricted, you need to block Chromecast from seeing the Google DNS servers (8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4), usually by putting a static IP route to nowhere in your router for those IP addresses so the Chromecast uses the next available DNS server it can find on the network which in this case is your DNS4ME server.

I've been using Pure.VPN which doesn't need any fiddling. Got 1 year sub for $11.88USD or 0.99 cents a month. (They have a Andriod TV app which is great for my Mi Box)

 

Pure.VPN lets you tunnel split specific apps so it doesn't screw up your NZ based stuff like TVNZ or Spark Sport. Casting Kayo to Mi Box also works flawlessy.

I guess an easy option is to get a vpn client onto my mobile to get the app from the play store.

 

 

 

Re the static routes for google DNS - already done 😀
