NordVPN not working with ITVX

If you’ve been using NordVPN to watch ITVX outside the UK, you may have started running into the same issues I’m currently running into. I’m not able to watch anything on the streaming service because it’s saying I’m not in the UK.

I’m coming across error code 01-04 in which it says:

“Outside the UK?

Due to our broadcast and content licences, you can only watch ITVX in the UK.”

The good news is I managed to fix it, and it’s easy. Here’s how I did it.

How I fixed NordVPN not working with ITVX

Let’s not beat around the bush, there isn’t a lot you can do to fix NordVPN not working with ITVX. The only thing that usually works is changing to a different server in the UK.

When you do this, NordVPN will give you a different IP address, and if ITVX hasn’t managed to identify or block that one, then you’ll be able to watch the streaming service again.

As a rule of thumb, always try and connect to a server in a location where you think there will be less users. For example, instead of London try Manchester or somewhere with even less people. This could help in providing you with an IP address that no one else is using, meaning there will be less chance of it getting blocked.

If that doesn’t work, the only advice I can provide is try a different VPN. You can try a free VPN, however I get the most reliable connections with ITVX from premium VPNs. I use both NordVPN and ExpressVPN and I don’t have any issues with ITVX. You can get a discount on an ExpressVPN subscription here if you choose.
