Panasonic PX/42ST50B - Suddenly requires BBC iplayer sign in


Novice Member
After 3 years my Panasonic PX/42ST50B has suddenly started requiring sign in every time I use BBC iplayer.

I have an iplayer logins but regularly access on my PC & mobile devices without ever needing sign in.

I have updated the firmware & rebooted, all to no avail.

Does anyone have any ideas please ?

It is a requirement to sign on to use iplayer but you should only have to do it once, if you've tried deleting and reinstalling then you might want to get in touch with Panasonic and see if they are aware of the issue.

I would try a factory reset to 'Shipping Condition' (as Panasonic call it) - just make sure you make a note of any important settings you've changed first, as these will obviously all be reset.
