Horrible video player. It's truly a shame that you have to use this app to watch BBCA content, because it's simply terrible. Seeking is broken, forcing you to watch ads over and over without even going forward in the video. Navigation buttons never dissapear. Half the time it just completely breaks, and I cant watch the video. So it's just a very bad experience overall.
Best app in BBC's history and I'm also a legendary Doctor Who fan and a real long time Sherlock fan.
Saves bandwidth... nothing works
Didn't have any episodes of Doctor Who or Sherlock, even when signed in with the only cable provider in my area. I guess the only legal way to watch these shows as they air is to spend more money. At least Google play only charges $23 a season for doctor who, afaik only once ever, and includes all these extras and more. I'm not recommending this app anytime soon.
I have successfully used this app once and I've tried it many times over the past few months. First problem was it repeatedly had me to login with my service provider and never was able to view. Now when I try to live stream in the app it wants me to download the app I'm presently using. Get it to work and I will redownload it, until then it's useless.
The app installs and requires a TV service provider to run. The latter is annoying, but since I do pay for TV service it's just inconvenient. The app itself is slow, but I cannot get any videos to play. It shows me a picture of an episode (Top Gear America), and then when I hit play, "Sorry, we can't play this video right now." This has been going on for 2 weeks, on 5 different Android devices. How the BBC allowed this garbage to be developed and released by them is beyond comprehension.
