I watch skynews live online from it's website. I have been making a note of the IP I have been given for the last few days. When I go to watch skynews live, I get a pre-recorded video and a message basically saying, I’m not from the UK.
The last time I had this problem, was about six years ago and it turned out that the IP addresses given by the isp, where not properly registered, that is why they would not work with most streaming videos, like skynews.
I never had this problem with my last isp so it’s not my end. Also I seem to get quite a bit of buffering on the high setting. To medium and low is ok but was not a problem before with old isp.
See here and if other PN users who are on dynamic IP, would like to test it as well.
http://news.sky.com/ Click on, “watch sky news live” at the top and it will open a pop up window. It will be on high setting unless you change it.
This is a snapshot of what I get when I have an IP from plusnet, that does not work. If you get this, then you have the same problem as me, with a bad PN IP.
These two at the moment are the ones that won't work, for the reasons I stated above.
If a PN rep replies, I can send them the full IP’s in a PM, so they can do some more testing or remove the Ip addresses.
The IP address I have today, starts with 87 and is working fine.
So could PN please sort this IP problem out and the buffering issue? Thanks
