Hi, I live in South Africa and am looking at buying a 3810R, my primary objective is to stream BBC and BBC Iplayer. I see that there has recently been an issue with Roku and Iplayer - please could anyone confirm that if I buy the 3810R, I will currently be able to get BBC Iplayer. Thanks

Thanks for the inquiry.

Please be aware that channel availability/access on Roku devices will vary from region to region. A Roku device will work in any location, however, channels may not be available on your device in that location, based on each channel provider's discretion. For more information, you'd want to contact any specific channel/service provider to inquire further about whether they offer their channel/service on the Roku platform in your region. 


Thanks,
Danny
