Review from David Parker
Is there any way to remove this thing? I tried disabling it but the launch icons remain on the home screen. I don't pay for a TV license so ideally I don't want this thing which I never use visible on my screen in case TV licensing come round and try to fine me for having it...
September 26, 2016Hello David. I am sorry you experienced difficulties with NVIDIA BBC iPlayer. To remove most apps, go to "Settings, Apps, Find the App, Select it, Uninstall". If this does not work, could you please report this bug to our Customer Care team by emailing email@example.com so that an agent can assist you.
re: Paul G , it started working again after 24 hours. A network error/change from BBC I assume. Works very nicely with the Shield remote. Now, Nvidia, if you'd make a compatible version of other British TV apps (All 4 / ITV Player etc) it would be wonderful since the app makers themselves seem unwilling to add Android TV compatibility!
It doesn't work anymore, iplayer says its not supported on the shield tv. What's going on! I'm in the UK but the app opens and says it's not supporting anymore. Help us please...
Rubbish, it doesn't even have an HD option... And whilst we're at it, the Shield is lacking all the major catch up apps, e.g. All4, ItvPlayer, Demand5 (My5) etc, Nvidia Shield TV the best streaming box? I don't think so.
This used to be utter garbage. But the BBC seem to of changed to an adaptive algorithm so now the quality you get is good. I haven't done a true A B test but it is at least 90% of the quality the samsung tv does nativley. I was only watching cartoons. IE the really negative reviews are out of date (they were bang on at the time though)
this app keep disappearing from my home screen and i have to uninstall and reinstall the app every time i want to use it on my nvidia shield tv 6.0. does anyone have a sugestion on how to lock it on the home screen? i would be much appreciate if nvidia reply.
The blacks are light grey, what's going on?! The user interface has dark, near black elements, however video playback shows things that should be black as light grey! The shield tv device shows true blacks properly on every other app, so I know my 4K OLED is not set up incorrectly. I have maybe more than 10 other bbc iplayer programs that don't have this problem.
Updated BBC SPORT app.
Support full 1080P user interface in iPlayer.
Properly detect daydream starting, and keep application alive in background.
Embed a new web back-end inside of app to address Nougat security issues.
Removed press-HOME-twice to exit, SHIELD now shows BACK exit dialog when you 'back out all the way'.
