IP Geo-blocking "Ireland" blocks access to Discovery+ on Roku

Just an FYI for those out there trying to perform your own network security management at home.

I started geo-blocking higher risk countries on my router and found out that when I block "Ireland" that Discovery+ channel no longer works.

Not sure if they just happened to get a public IP from a pool that is normally associated with Ireland or that something else is going on but wanted to share the info.
