Siri is not working in terms of bringing back sports scores and team details. I am trying premier league football. Even one of Siris example questions (Barcelonas goalkeeper) she fails to provide an answer for.

Anyone else having this problem? Am based in the UK

Works in the US fine.

Hmm is there any legitimate reason why this would not work in the UK?

Those from the US , could you please ask Siri what the Arsenal score was? See if she responds

Key feature for me doesn't work at all. Do I have a defective unit, or does this thing have to be returned for a refund?

Works for me on the premier league scores. I asked siri what was the score of man u's last match and it came back with-"A boring 0-0 against man City" This was Friday.

Does it work for all sports? I asked Siri to give me golf scores and got nothing. Same with tennis. I know those aren't the most popular sports but it would be nice if Siri could bring back results from all sports.

Could someone give me with a verbatim phrase to try which works for them?
This is frustrating as heck

After tearing my hair out I have found out why this is happening. UnblockUS. Its their custom DNS. Change DNS settings back to automatic and sports scores work again. This needs to be documented. I have reported this to UnblockUS

Siri needs some refinement. If I say "show me the Portland Trail Blazers" she interprets it as "trailblazers" and returns no results. I have to say "show me the Portland. Trail. Blazers." Then she gets it.

Same deal searching for movies. Del Toro comes out "deltoro" and no results unless you say it "Del. Toro."

Annoying but fixable. It works right on iPhone and ATV4 is basically an always on iPhone.

I’m facing the same issue...I ask Siri for IPL cricket scores and Siri returns results from the web and doesn’t read the score like she used to earlier...this issue came around on 11th October(I know as I use Siri for scores almost everyday)
