My ISP is blocking Internet access on Apple TV's. How do they determine that traffic is originating from an Apple TV? Any way around it?

    Blocking Apple tv’s specifically or video with the wrong region code embedded? – Tyson Apr 18 '18 at 15:22

    Their technical support told us. There's a $50/month charge to be able to use the Apple TV on top of the normal service rate. – Martin Van Nostrand Apr 18 '18 at 15:26

    Then they are packet filtering (examining your traffic and dropping what looks to be related to Apple TV). VPN would be your best bet. What provider? Is this US based? – Allan Apr 18 '18 at 15:35

    They seem to be a WiFi centric ISP that focuses on niche markets. WiFi bandwidth get's saturated quickly and this tiered pricing model ensures that bandwidth apps like Netflix and Apple TV don't over saturate the network. Unfortunately, if you want it, you have to pay for it. – Allan Apr 18 '18 at 15:48
