Cannot watch Channel 4 On Demand even though I am in the UK.

When I try to access content from channel 4, it says that I am not in the UK. https://www.channel4.com/programmes/first-dates/on-demand/55507-004 All add-ons disabled. Same issue.

I am connected to a vpn and it is located in the UK. See the attached images.

I know that the vpn is fine because this works flawlessly in the google garbage browser. Actually, any browser at all. Just firefox remains blocked.

I tried with geo.enabled set to true and false as well.

What do these websites say about your location?

The screenshot in my original thread make it pretty clear that I am located in the uk. So going to other ip location websites is a waste of time. Plus, the site works fine in other browsers.

Geolocation API × Your browser does not supports Geolocation API

That doesn't seem right, since I believe Firefox supports this API. I also don't have location requests blocked.

The last link is dumb and wrong anyway. It would make sense if every browser had this issue, but it's only firefox. I tried it anyway, didn't change anything. Same issue persists.

Did you check the Web Console for messages about geolocation ?

Does this work properly if you do not use this VPN ?

Some websites keep a list of VPN IPs and do not allow access.

What am I looking for in the console exactly? There doesn't seem to be anything of issue. Just google content blocks.


The vpn is clearly not blocked since this works in google's tracking browser.
