    Sign in issues If I turn TV off or if the TV does an update the log in details are lost. So I then have to go onto the BBC website to enter the code from the app each time the TV is unplugged or has a software upgrade. Otherwise the app isn't too bad. I don't have any issues with having to log into any of my other apps in the above scenarios.

    Was ok until Android update. Installation of Android 10 and now I get a constant cracking sound on every download playback. Does not happen if I live stream the same file, it only happens when it's downloaded. No issues with YouTube, Netflix , Amazon or any other application with Android 10

    Watched a programme on iPlayer on my Samsung tablet earlier and tried to load next episode.Screen went completely black. Have uninstalled and reinstalled three times and am met with black screen. Is their a fix? All other apps are working.

    My review is for iPlayer Radio. I used to listen to BBC radio on my Android KitKat tablet. Now, I click on iplayer Radio and I'm told it's been replaced by BBC Sounds. So I try to install BBC Sounds and find it's incompatible with my tablet, because it's an older version of Android. So well done, BBC. Your new app is so badly written that it's incompatible with my quite decent 32gb tablet. Can't even leave a stinking review because I can't until I've installed the app. Pathetically bad.

    Outstanding range and breadth of content across all platforms. Well worth the money

    Great in many ways. When watching a live channel you can move the timeline back and forward and pause. This fails when using Chromecast.

    Disappointed there are no subtitles, I am using this for my 90 Yr old mother who is staying with me during covid19 crisis and its so frustrating for her.

    🎉 As of the mid-January update, everything is working again! 🎉 The following was my original review: Live streaming works, but on ALL demand content is BROKEN! When you try to stream any on demand show, it says "This content is not currently available." When you try to download any on demand show, it gives the following error: "Network Issue There was a problem with this download. Please check your network connection and try again."

  9. guest-avatar

    Not well designed unlike other streaming apps. Needs a ten second skip forward/back like Netflix, Prime. On a touchscreen phone the purple bar is too small too press, to skip forward/back a bit. Easy to skip too far. Clicking on a show from the home screen has simple boxes for the seasons. Click on one and shows the episodes . However, searching a show from the search box, below we get the latest season, episodes and extras. A bother and gives away things in screenshots. No need for that page.

  10. guest-avatar

    I am hard of hearing, I have the BBC iPlayer app on my smart TV and it has the option for CC subtitles however, the same app on my Samsung galaxy 10 has no option for CC subtitles. Come on BBC what's the meaning of this discrimination to the hard of hearing? try watching news live, there is no subtitles, I expect this to be resolved ASAP. Simply not on.

  11. guest-avatar

    Latest update (on Android) tapping the new Live thumbnail from the Home screen doesn't detect the Region set within the app.

  12. guest-avatar

    Love this app. Love catching up on soaps and other programs. Ive got no issues with this app

  13. guest-avatar

    You have to select whih gender you are and when you press to choose the button doesnt even work. Ive been trying for the last 20 minutes now.

    Would give more stars but as someone who is deaf I rely on subtitles but apparently unable to access subs on the app.

  15. guest-avatar

    Still can't expand to full screen so still rarely use mobile app as I asked about this a couple of years ago and wasn't a priority, so there's even more bigger screens out there now and still get black bars each side. This is the same on ITV app and I guess the others too, YouTube have done it why can't all the TV apps do it.
