Thank You Plusnet Community!...

TP-Link Archer C8 there is an additional step to get multicast working (similar to that for the Billion Bipac)
In WAN Settings, below the PPPOE username and password select "Static IP" as "Secondary Connection" type, then input 169.254.1.23 and 255.255.255.0 as IP address and subnet . Reboot and should be good to go. I assume any number in the 169.x.x.x range will do, that is just the example TP-Link support gave.
I'm guessing this solution will apply to other TP-Link routers, eg C9
