Tunein station unavailable

I can connect to Tunein Offshore Radio Sounds through various other internet connections, but cannot through PN unless I use a VPN.

Is this a networking issue or is the station blocked by PN for some reason?

The TuneIn app on the Now TV box works without any problems on Plusnet.

Re: Tunein station unavailable

So are you saying that Offshore Radio Sounds plays for you, or that you can ping and trace to Tunein generally?

I can connect and use Tunein with other stations OK

Ah, OK, understood more fully now.

Yes, ORS is fine, and yes, the trace was to the site in general.

That link works here in chrome browser, but complains of ad blockers in other browsers.

Thanks.. yes I've tried other browsers and turning off ad blocker to no avail. ORS is also blocked on my Android mobile Tunein app when connected to my wifi. Suggests maybe a router issue or a PN block as the VPN works fine.

Works for me on my Plusnet connection

Tunein are also blocking a lot of radio stations due to UK court action, but I don't think it is your problem

Re: Tunein station unavailable

I've discovered that it's not only TuneIn that doesnt work with ORS... If I use Streema or Internet radio I get the same problem of a block.

It would seem that their server is for some reason blocking my fixed IP. Change it and all is well.

Thanks for everyone's comments
