TV SPIELFILM is geo-blocked

  • After enabling the VPN option in Opera developer I get the following response from https://live.tvspielfilm.de/livetv/ARD : "Sie befinden sich nicht in Deutschland. Die Live TV Funktionen von TV SPIELFILM können Sie ausserhalb Deutschland nicht nutzen."
    Is'nt VPN supposed to hide my location information?

  • When you use a VPN, sites will see a different IP address than your real one and then think that you are accessing from the location of that IP address.

    However, there are ways of a site to know the real IP address and the real location of the one accessing it.

    You can try avoiding it by going to Settings > Privacy and Security > WEbRTC and checking the option 'Disable non-proxied UDP'.

  • The option WEbRTC 'Disable non-proxied UDP' was checked by default. I still cannot access the site..

  • The option WEbRTC 'Disable non-proxied UDP' was checked by default. I still cannot access the site..

    Then they may be using another way to check or they may be blocking the VPN/Proxy IP.

    Did you ever enabled geo-location for that page?

  • I use the following settings:
    Ask me when a site tries to track my physical location (recommended)

    I still cannot access the website.

  • I still cannot access the website.

    I'm afraid there may be nothing to be done. The site may have found a way to bypass the VPN.

  • Thank you for your interest anyway.
