Better than ITV player in that you can watch a program but still a poor UI experience focussed around how many adds they can force on you. Watching football and screen buffers then freezes. Click to restart and you get hit with an add. 20 secs later screen buggera again. Restart and you get hit with the same add (shouldn't see ANY add 20nsecs later!) and you miss a goal because of this add. Surely a count of how long its been since add was displayed should be factored in!! App isn't match fit!!

Worst app for watching on demand, streaming and casting to TV. Glitches in the middle of a show and shuts down completely. Randomly starts playing ads in the middle of live streaming causing you to miss parts of the show. Plays the same ad over and over. Also not compatible with sound bar, causing delay with sound/image while casting to TV.

This must be the most problematic media player I can think of. Tried to watch a programme on this and the buffering at 100Mb + internet speeds left me believing that I had inadvertently taken a step back. In other words I was sure I had a 14.4k US Robotics dial up plugged in to the wall. Perhaps that could be an improvement in consideration to support this sorry app!!

What's new

We're gearing up for the World Cup and getting the app match fit - with a number of bug fixes and optimisations, so you get the best from our Live streamed games and our huge catalogue of free box sets.
