I have same issue here with the new huawei MediaPad T5 tablet.


Does this device meet the specifications of the Anyplace Overview links I provided in this thread? Android?

 

You’ll need:

  • A Rogers Digital TV package subscription.
  • A Rogers SD, HD, or 4K digital box that you rent or own (digital adapters are not supported).
  • An active internet or wireless data connection.
  • A computer with an up-to-date browser to access Anyplace TV online, or a smartphone/tablet running iOS or Android to use the Anyplace TV app.
    • Supported browsers: Chrome, Microsoft Edge, IE 11
  • A MyRogers profile, with your Rogers Digital TV account linked to it.

Re: Rogers Anyplace TV - not available outside of Canada error

Hello,

I have a basic question. And am relatively new to anywhere tv.

i will be vacationing in Florida for a few months, with access to wifi.

if I purchase a canadian VPN service, will I be able to access Rogers anywhere tv from the US ?

thereby gaining access to my favourite TSN and Sportsnet channels ?

Maybe?

On anyplace TV, watching the LIVE content, on many of the channels is restricted to being on the ROGERS network (home or wireless I think), if on another provider in canada, I think you can only get limited live channels.

But otherwise, yes by using a VPN, you should be able to then access the anyplace TV, as it will view you in canada.

I agree.  Just switched to Rogers before leaving for Florida for the winter.  When I had Bell I couldn’t watch live shows but could watched my saved show.  I  am very disappointed.  Now I have to get a subscription to a VPN provider for about $50 and hope then I will be able to watch the cable shows I am paying for.

Can't you just run a VPN on your home computer in Canada and VPN into that from a place outside of Canada.  Why wouldn't that work?

It might take a little more technical know-how but it is fairly easy to run OpenVPN server on your router, or on a PC on your LAN.  When you do that I belive the default configuration is to then force all external traffic to flow through the VPN connection first.

This has the added advantage of putting you on your own LAN so that you can access other stuff that requires you to be on your LAN.

@wayner92 yes you could do that.  The option of forcing all or some of the router traffic thru the VPN would depend on the options available in the VPN or firewall settings of the router.  Routers are not all the same in that regard.  I think with Merlin's Asuswrt you have the option of forcing all or some traffic thru the VPN.
