Sorry for the noise.
Can someone inside TVNZ On Demand please make contact off list.
It looks like some of our IP's (At $DAYJOB - inside 184.108.40.206/22) are on
some kind of block list being used by TVNZ On Demand for Akamai delivered
videos. The video player just shows a fairly useless error message, and
when looked at in fiddler a 403 is being returned from the Akamai server.
We are not aware of any lists any of the affected IP's are on and I believe
they may be legacy listings.
I have been trying to work through with TVNZ On Demand Support under Ticket
117175. So far I haven't been able to escalate this or get any feedback or
We have worked with our upstream carrier and they have raised it with
Akamai who have indicated it isn't a block they have in place but that
their customer has hence trying to make contact with someone who could
check if the blocks are recent or prior to being held by us and if recent
what caused them so we can resolve it.
Thank you for your time.

RFC 8195 "Use of BGP Large Communities" was just now published:
RFC 8195 presents examples and inspiration for the operational
application of Large Communities. The document suggests logical
categories of Large Communities and demonstrates an orderly manner of
organizing community values within those categories to achieve typical
goals in routing policy. Any network or route server operator can
consider using the concepts presented as the basis for their own Large
RFC 8195 is meant as a companion document in the same way that RFC 1998
provided a concrete real-world application for RFC1997 BGP Communities.
The RFC draws on the experience of operator communities such as NANOG
A ton of open source implementations  with Large support are already
available. And with more traditional vendors like IOS XR, Junos, Arista
& Nokia having releases around the corner, I hope this will be useful
when planning your Large Communities deployment later this year.
