    That would likely be it.

    I've heard that ex-pats and those on holiday have some success using VPN...
    You do not need to use a vpn necessarily - a Smart DNS server will usually work but there is usually a modest monthly fee to use them.

    Hi there

    Thanks especially to @cereberus

    never heard of Smart DNS servers -- seems to work fine and seems better than messing around with VPN's. Must be fairly new technology. Getting local (Gb/s) Internet speed too -- unlike some slowdown with certain VPN's.

    Now got SKY SPORTS and BBC iPlayer in Brussels hotel -- no prob.

    For Netflix I have an NL (Dutch) subscription so that's no issue using local URL.



    Cheers
    folks

    Smart DNS has been around for years. Only problem you can get is of you set up a Smart DNS to access say Netflix USA, it then fails when you try to access Netflix UK meaning you have to keep reverting to normal DNS servers.

    I used to get round this by simply linking two routers together with different WiFi credentials, and one router used Smart DNS, and other normal DNS (typically ISP router - some will not allow you to change DNS anyway).
