A few times lately when trying to watch a film/channel on TV Anywhere, I've been getting the message 'Programme not available on this platform', on some channels.
I've read a post from 2013 about this but it doesn't seem to answer this issue.
I'm getting the error message on channels and films (eg ITV4 Skyfall) I've watched before without a problem, but now lately they won't stream. I also tried a film on ITV but again the same issue. This is occurring on both my devices.
Am using TV Anywhere on Android 5.1.1 mobile 6.01 tablet.
It's a basic fact that some channels buy content without streaming rights. In these cases, all legitimate streaming services are prevented from showing such content.
Example: I can watch Judge Judy via TV Anywhere on CBS Reality, CBS Drama & Really but not on ITV channels, where I see the "restricted" message. If I go to itv.com & try to stream it from ITV Player, I see the same restricted message.
This isn't a fault & is beyond Virgin Media's control anyway.
