The Newer Now TV box is a ROKU 4.
I bought the Premiere+ in the US a couple of weeks ago.
I tried it and was surprised to find that BBC iPlayer didn't report a message like 'You can only access this App from within the UK etc" but blanked the screen for a few seconds and then returned to the top menu. I wasn't unduly worried as I was returning to the UK soon afterwards and -surely- there wouldn't be any such problems!
I set the box up in my UK home, connected to my UK internet (i.e. no VPN or Proxy) and did a firmware update to 7.5.1 build 4111-29.
Needless to say, I got the exact same response!
The problem has clearly nothing to do with the BBC's insistence on Geo policing. If it is Roku's way of ensuring that a US device doesn't work in Europe, it would be too stupid to even contemplate, particularly as everything else works... Roku's failing is in letting a device hit the shelves with untested Apps!
Has anybody else had the same problem?
My model is 4630X (Premiere+) with S/N YR00CH442552. Device ID is 7KA6AC442552
