I have TalkTalk Fibre and have NOW tv as a separate service direct with them.
For the past week, I have been having difficulties accessing the services of NOW tv via my TalkTalk fibre internet.
First, the website. I can access the website on my laptop, but when I go to the login page, I just get a "Unable to connect to sign in, please try again later" error before even trying to log in. Using the developer tools in Google Chrome, the network tab shows some requests on this page have CORS errors.
However, the interesting this is that if I enable the hotspot on my mobile (vodafone), and connect to that, it works perfectly fine. It is just via the TalkTalk wifi that I cannot access it.
Then we come to the NOW tv devices (Roku). These work in that I can access the TV services, but while connected to the TalkTalk wifi, it is extremely slow to navigate the menu. You are having to wait 45-60 seconds to load a section compared to 5 seconds via my mobile hotspot.
Any ideas? Homesafe/kids safe is turned off
I have tried changing the DNS settings on the router to use the Google ones, but it made no difference, so have set them back to automatic.
