    Android - football 'not available' in my location

    Android - football 'not available' in my location 6th Mar 18 at 10:33 PM
    I have an Xiaomi Mi A1 phone running Android v8 (Oreo). It's a great phone, but I have one minor niggle. I wanted to watch a bit of the FA Cup game on the BBC website recently but it said not available in my location. Ditto when I tried to watch highlights on the Sky website tonight. I am in the UK so it should be fine, and other apps like BBC news and weather, Google and Google maps etc seem to know I am in the UK. Any ideas how to resolve this?

    Location is switched on, with high accuracy selected. At app level it is enabled for several apps including Google and Chrome.

    No, the live BBC cup game was a Sunday afternoon and Sky highlights last night.
