      Was you using the rail operators connection? I was staying at my Mums static caravan last month and found that the sites wifi blocks all access to on demand content much to my disappointment! I guess probably due to the limited bandwidth of the parks connection.
      Just a thought.

      Good point about train wifi there. I have noticed that some (if not all) train operators place restrictions on the use of their wifi services for using streaming video services, such as Cross Country Trains whose T&Cs state:

      "We want to make your CrossCountry WiFi experience as effective as possible, but as it is a public service within the on-train environment you should not try to access any sites which could be deemed as inappropriate or offensive. In addition, and in order to provide a reliable WiFi service to all who use it, users will not be able to use the WiFi system to watch catch-up TV (e.g. BBC iPlayer, ITVPlayer etc), download very large files, access Video sharing sites (e.g. YouTube) or for file sharing (e.g. BitTorrent)."

      But, of course, apologies to worcesterman47 for digressing from the original question!

      My phone is on Three which allows me to roam in Ireland at no extra cost. The MiFi was on a pay-as-you-go with Three as well. Again that was able to roam in Ireland without any extra cost.

      I was blocked on both counts as I was 'Roaming' according to the Sky Go app. If it has been corrected since great. I have raised this as an issue but have heard nothing back.
