Update 5pm ET Hurrah, All fixed! The gremlin has been evicted from all devices apart from Apple TV. We are still working on this one, so keep an eye on the article if you have an ATV.

If you haven’t got an Apple TV, can you please reboot your router, all devices attached to your router and follow these instructions to update your internet address with our servers (just incase your internet address changes on router reboot) and try again. 

​If you continue to get an error message please get in touch with our support team.

This is not the first time a content company has made moves to block VPNs. This seams to be just one more move in a game that is far from over.

We have reached out to Unblock-US and Hulu for comment both have not responded by the time of posting.

We will update this post and our Twitter account through out the day as I’m sure this will not be the last move today.
