I have used a VPN (Freedome) for a while and often jump out of the UK. During those "overseas" trips BBC iPlayer identifies that I am "abroad" and when attempting automatic downloads it returns the message: It looks like you are out of the country, please come back to the UK to try again.
This has always resolved itself when I have again connected by a UK server, until now ...
For the past few days, iPlayer still thinks that I am abroad and will neither resume downloading the missing episodes nor let me click on the greyed-out download links on the website.
I have tried disabling the VPN, I have gone abroad and back again and I have rebooted my iMac. I have deleted all episodes in the series and tried to start over again.
It still tells me that I am abroad!
Can anyone suggest what is happening and how I can get round this?
iMac running under macOS Catalina v10.15.4 (19E287)
Thanks in advance.
