The Dev team behind this app is amazing. Massive issue that means you have to watch something the whole way through. If you don't you can't watch it unless you reinstall the app over and over again (lost count but I'm sure it's into triple figures now). But hey it got past testing so it must be OK. So that is why I rated it 5* (not really its 1*. Might rise if the Dev team pulls its finger out!)
Do you need a hand? You say this is a release for 7.0 (well done...one year on) and multiple bugs fixed. But the main bug if you read ALL of your reviews, are that if you try and resume a video after exiting, you see the error "video could not be loaded"! You have to clear app data and go back in, every time without fail! It's the only thing this app is consistent at. Along with the lack of Chromecast support, this continues to be the worst catch up TV app that is available on the Play Store.
This app has major issues. Will be uninstalling it. It gladly let's you watch the adverts,but the actual programme you want to watch will not play. Either you get a striped screen with a little broken sound or you get the message , sorry you need an internet connection to view this programme. I can assure whom ever that my internet is excellent.
If I wanted to watch adverts I would go to C4 or itv at least they show a programme now and then here no such luck. Excellent quality adverts hd no slow down perfect in every way then sorry your 65mgbit connection is to slow to run the TV show.but.my Netflix prime video and now TV run fine respond please
Thought I'd give it the benefit of doubt considering other reviews. Got halfway through one programme and it stopped and started telling me there was a problem with Internet connection and it couldn't reload. There is no problem with my Internet. Shame as I was looking forward to this. But as previous people have said it is a load of rubbish.
Doesn't work at all. Home screen comes up, but after I select a program, it just cuts to a black screen with a message that says "unable to play video, check your connection". All other tv services on my phone are fine. YouTube, Netflix, iplayer etc. But this app just doesn't work. Shame really, really wanted to catch on some episodes of Taskmaster that I'd missed. :/ Phone: LGG5. Firmware: 6.0.1
What's new in version 4.2.0
We've fixed a number of bugs - especially on Android 7, which is now fully supported.
And if you missed v4.0, you'll also get:
• Hugely improved performance
• Shiny new design and layout
• New TV categories: genres and box sets
• Did we say hugely improved performance? It’s worth saying twice; it really is that massive!
There’s more on the way, so keep your eyes peeled for further updates from the UKTV Play app.
This app works with BBC websites and apps to play BBC content on your device.
