Resume is still broken. Uninstall and install the app to be able to continue or rewatch a show you've already started watching. You can pause and unpause a show, but if you navigate away from that screen it will offer to resume or restart, but neither will work - you have to uninstall the app and start over. The adverts always play. Aside from that it is free and has some good shows.
Absolutely awful app. Once you've started watching a show it will not resume should you have to pause for any reason. Surely the whole point of a 'catch up tv' app is to watch programs at your own leisure? If you can't pause or part watch a show and resume then it's exactly the same as missing it the first time round!!! Utterly ridiculous. I still find it amazing that they release an app like this, they must know fill well that it doesn't work properly?
This app is still flawed. 1) It sometimes remembers its place if you lose signal. 2) it cannot reload a programme if you lose signal. 3) It freezes and cuts out many times more than all the other TV apps. 4) The ads go on for ages and when you try and restart a programme it restarts the ads even if it cuts out just as ads were ending. 5) It's not on Chromecast. 6) clearing app data and cache doesn't.
I've got nothing against having adverts on the app but when it's not stable it can be very annoying. The adverts will freeze, crash and often keep repeating. You can sit there for 10 minutes watching adverts waiting for the programme you are halfway through to come back. Update: seem to have fixed the advert issue mostly but still there a bit. Really need to get Chromecast functionality though
Poor as have to uninstall from device and reinstall to continue the next day to watch stuff as it says I don't have an Internet connection. Obviously I have Internet as I'm able to do so! And I done see any reviews getting a response from you lit which leads me to believe you don't really give a flying monkeys
It does not work! The adverts play OK but when a programme starts audio is fine but the screen is blank. The same dismal performance with three different versions on four different Android devices. Perhaps they think they are running a radio station!
What's news in version 4.0.4
Our new app is going to make your day (or at least make it a bit better). In this latest update, you’ll see:
• 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.
