ITV Player

I have a Minix NEO-U9 with a number of media apps installed. I connect to the UK from Middle East (using VPN) and recently ITV Player stopped working saying that I was using wrong version of Android. The Minix NEO-U9 currently has 6.0.1. Has anyone run into similar issues and how were you able to resolve? I've looked for similar threads and cannot find in this forum.
Your version will need an update, that might be difficult to get as I find here in Asia Google Playstore will not allow you to update outside the geolocated area. I have overcome this issue using Aptoid they did have a dedicated install that I found when searching for a solution, however their app has it available .. you will need to search within it, also available is the All4 that some seem to have issues getting.
