I am a new user of Airvpn and impressed with how it works.  However whereas I am able to connect to BBC iPlayer and the ITV hub in UK, Channel 4 does not work - complains I am not in the right area.  I am connect to Netherlands.

Contact staff and nicely ask if rerouting is possible. Provide links and examples. Don't expect anything, this is very important. :)

Always remember:
There's a guide to AirVPN,

Amazon IPs are not dangerous here,
running TOR exits is discouraged,

using spoilers for your logs helps us read your thread.

~ Furthermore, I propose that your paranoia is to be destroyed. ~

Instead of writing me a personal mail, consider contacting me via XMPP at gigan3rd@xmpp.airvpn.org or join the lounge@conference.xmpp.airvpn.org. I might read the mail too late whereas I'm always available on XMPP ;)

If you connect to a UK server 4OD works fine.

Try connecting to a London server, then create an account with Channel4, using a valid UK address.
This worked for me (also based in NL)

Still having this same issue.  Based in the US, using a London IP - Alshain, and am getting a "The service is not currently available in your area" message.

Same problem. Used to be able to watch channel4.com On Demand. And yes I connected via a London based server. And I tried different browsers, etc.


Any suggestions..?

Im the same, I used to be able to watch channel 4 when connected to a UK server and now I cannot watch anything on channel 4 no matter which UK server I try. Isnt this supposed to be a selling point of a VPN service?
