I am using an IPTV provider for channels streams. The stations url format is as follows: https://URL.xyz:443/play/random.letters/ts
But some channels are working and others are not. I am stumped at what is making UTM block some stations and not others !! The only difference in the link is the "random.letters" part.
Hi and welcome to the UTM Community!
Copy here a few lines from the Web Filtering log where a station is blocked.

We had a case, videos where not accesable also when the news page was not blocked.
It turned out Sophos blocked the Ad's that lay before the video. Solution: We did not touch the Adfilter in Sophos, we just installed Adblock+ and the user could play all the videos on this page without any problems. Also an adblock made the user surfing more secure and faster.
Hope this can help, at least you can give it a try.
The channel streams are direct streams without ads preloading. They would be loaded off VLC player or any media player. Moreover, there isn't any difference between channel A (not blocked) and channel B (blocked) other than few different letters in the URL.
