Review from Rob Lupine
Needs work, but ok I know they need the adverts to fund the app, but 3 adverts before you get to the show you want to watch is a little excessive. I was also annoyed to find when I paused the app to talk to someone it took me back to the start when I resumed. I could forward the programme on the search bar but not the adverts. Change it to just one advert at the beginning & one in the break & it'd be worth 4 stars, get rid of the adverts & it'd be 5.
Downloaded Programmes not Showing Sometimes, when I’ve downloaded a programme over a public Wifi connection, it's not available to view in the Downloaded box. Even if I try to watch it "live" I get a Network Error message. This has only happened today and at the end of last week. I didn't have a problem watching downloaded programmes after downloading at my brother's house.
Chromecast not supported anymore The Google chromecast used to work with this app but then they updated it and now it doesn't support beaming screens anymore :( terrible app
Disappointing Using the app to try and watch F1. I have an old tablet, one that's about a year and half old and brand new phone (and v.good connection) the app doesn't work properly on any of them. I have to download the programme (live F1 qualifying) to attempt to watch it and it still buffers every 30-40 seconds, but the adverts all play perfectly... How does that Work!?
Just no! I understand that funding for it TV channel maybe expensive, so adverts are unavoidable, however 5 minutes of adverts before a show followed by interval adverts throughout is unjustifiable.. not to mention navigating away from this app will make this process restart and you'll have to watch another five minutes of adverts. So you might want to tell your family and friends not to text or call you when you're using this app :/ or even better find the program you want to watch on YouTube and uninstall this app
There's no visual!!! Normally great but now there's no visual, only sound when i attempt to watch a programme. Can you fix this
Complete turd of an app This app is no use if you have anything near the latest kit... it would appear that it only works on old phones and OS.... complete junk as most people keep up with latest tech
