Try doing this. Clear all of your browsers history and close all of the browser you have. I think you have have issues with your DNS which is preventing you to see some websites and causing issues with it. Try doing this and follow the instructions https://www.whatsmydns.net/flush-dns.html

Basically Cleaning-up DNS cache helps you load websites that you were not able to access before, maybe due to some DNS issues.

Just follow the instructions that I mentioned? I too was having some issues with watching programmes via online and now it's not happening anymore. You can see the details on my signature to see what I have installed in my computer.
