Why Can't I Watch Some Programmes?

Like other online TV services such as BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub and NOW TV, due to the content rights of people who make TV programmes, we are not allowed to stream some programmes online.

Usually, the programmes TVPlayer is not allowed to show you are not available to watch on other services either.

If you see an error along the lines of "Sorry! This programme is not available due to content restrictions", this is not an error with your account or an issue with the TVPlayer service; it means the person who made the programme doesn't want their programme watched online just yet.

The good news is that most TV channels have cleared almost all of their programmes so they can be watched online and we are working with our channel partners to keep content restrictions to a minimum.

We have a handy page here where we list the programmes we are not allowed to show you:
