Re: virgin tv go programs blocked due to copyright

Anyone figure this out? It's happening to me too. 

Deleted app. Etc. All advice. Still blocked due to copyright. Works fine on TV.

Re: virgin tv go programs blocked due to copyright

Could you explain the problem you're having?

And whether it's affecting particular channels/programmes?

Try to watch a programme (Seal Team) on TV Go app. Error message appears. Blocked due to copyright restrictions on this device. 

I'm on full package. It works and can watch on TV and on browser on PC.

Re: virgin tv go programs blocked due to copyright

Are you a TV360 customer trying to stream a recording?

Or trying to stream away from home?

Is it only this one programme affected?

What do you mean by "full package"? Which TV tier are you on?

Re: virgin tv go programs blocked due to copyright

The full oomph or whatever its called. All channels, top bb, unlimited mobile. The works. 

It worked fine until a month or so ago. 

I'm trying to stream. Not a recording from my box.

I've not tried other programmes, can imagine it's just one. Maybe a channel? It is from Sky. But I have that channel on my package.  

Hope that makes sense?

Re: virgin tv go programs blocked due to copyright

I've just tried  watching  Seal Team on the android app and also on my PC.

I'm on the Ultimate Oomph package.

Checked Box Sets & Movies > Channels > Sky Max and on both devices was informed, 'Sorry this programme is blocked on this device due to copyright reasons.'

I tried series 3 episode 1  and was able to download it to my android and watch it. However using the PC browser you only have the option to Watch on TV or add it to  your watchlist.

I picked a few other programs out at random on my PC from Sky Max :-  Arrow,   Brave New World, Cobra, Colour of Magic, Flash and Grimm - all the same as above on a PC you only have the option to Watch on TV or add it to  your watchlist.

It looks this must be part of the agreement between Sky & VM.

Re: virgin tv go programs blocked due to copyright

That's what I thought. 

Can anyone from Virgin confirm?

Seems a bit off. Works on all platforms apart from the app?

Re: virgin tv go programs blocked due to copyright

E1 of all 4 series plays fine.

I've tried over WiFi & mobile data, and both are fine.

Android 11, app V4.34
