  • Stopped working

    By C-S-A
    I use the app every day, but a few days ago the streaming totally stopped. Now whenever I choose something to watch via the app, I get constant errors and nothing connects (my internet connection is fine). Redownloading the app has not fixed anything, so I am now left unable to watch anything at all on the app.

  • Nightshift Nurse

    By NightshiftNurse12
    I regularly watch tv programmes on catch up because of working difficult shift times. This app is awful, buffering issues, pauses and jumps to beginning of programmes constantly. Don’t bother downloading it’s a waste of time.
  • 1 star what can I say

    By Pugwashzzz
    Since the update unknown error on all my downloaded programmes thanks BBC for 8 hours of a very boring train Journey .
  • Remove watching programs

    By Snugrum
    I really would like to remove programs from my currently watching list as I sometimes start to watch things that I hate and they stay in my list forever. Really annoying. Otherwise I like the app.
  • No problems

    I’ve been using the iPlayer on my iPad for over four years now, through countless updates; live, recent past and box set content, and I’ve never once had a problem with it. I find it far superior to the other offerings available (and there aren’t any adverts!)
