User Reviews/Opinion:

  • Not worth it. Spends most of its time junkie up my phone. Or will crash. I could be standing right net to an mast with good connexions and still buffer. You can never wach what you want to when you want to. This is well beyond its competitors.
  • Used this on my tv now going to use thison my tablet as no tv available. Worked well everytime and caught up with many favourite programmes.
  • Unfortunately the BBC has become a RIGHT WING LEANING CORPORATION. Sick of the snobby reporters and rhetoric of Doom. The BBC IS NOT WORTH THE TV LICENSE FEE. JUST GET NETFLIX!
  • Latest update is a major step backwards. Programmes freezing, live streaming stuttering. How many times do how many of us have to post one star ratings before the BBC pull their heads out of their *rses and produce a working iPlayer app for the world’s most popular mobile platform?
  • How does an organisation like this have such appalling IT. The number of times I get the message ‘this content doesn’t seem to be working. please try again later ‘. So disappointing. Netflix works so much better
