UK catch up channels not loading

I have two Hisense TV’s, a TCL one and two sticks. I am a big fan. However no device will now load up any of the UK catch up channels (iPlayer, ITVX, ALL 4, My 5). I get the error “this channel is unavailable right now” on all devices. Netflix, Prime, Now all work fine and the internet connection is perfect. All devices have latest OS and updates but cannot resolve this issue. Tried uninstall/reinstall the offending channels too but to no avail. I find it strange that’s it’s all the free services that won’t load but the paid ones do. Can anyone help please?
