    Constantly buffers every 5 seconds. I do not have this issue with other streaming services and no I haven't moved my TV or router. Awful interface that's gets in the way of finding shows and episodes and lists them in a random order. You'd just expect better from The BBC wouldn't you? This app has been trash for far too long, buggy and poorly designed. Takes top spot for most unappealing streaming app. Even if there were things I wanted to watch, half the time I'm just put off even opening it.

    Thankyou for bringing out this app. I like this app, to make this app to love it then the following updates are required. The features would be nice but wouldn't affect the score: Updates: 1. Bug Fixes - The app sometimes just crashes when you try and open the app - Sometimes it just automatically logs you out of the account and then just crashes for no apparent reason. - Some videos just show a black screen 2. Performance Improvement - Sometimes the app takes too long to load - The videos takes too long to load and I have ultrafast WIFI. Features: 1. Video Quality - The video quality is rubbish. You should have the option to change the video quality. The highest should be 1080p Please make this update by 15th October 2020 and I will change this review from 4 stars to 5 stars if all updates are completed and at least the video quality feature to be added. Keep Safe Christian Lineham

    This app has the WORST search in the entire universe. Search for a programme and it finds you the latest episode, with NO way of finding any earlier episodes. I don't know about the programmers, but I generally start watching at the start of a series; I find the plot is easier to follow that way. But maybe that's just me being odd.

  4. Toby Weller-avatar

    Toby Weller


    Until you fix the app properly I can just about give you 1 star. Watching The Apprentice plays next episode but has the loading wheel then restarts even though it was playing. Netflix, Prime Video, Disney Plus etc don't have issues as bad as this. Has been going on for years! Please can you fix it! We pay for the TV licence surely you can fix it.

    Content is good but when videos play, the clip fails to move while sound continues. Used to be only via news now news and iplayer. (Assume fault lies with BBC Media player) but now vids only work approximatley 1 in 6 attemps... Easier to download BBC programs "elsewhere"...

    AAAAAARRRRRRRGGGGGGGHHH A couple of days ago started spinning when opening when starting over wifi. Bizarrely starts ok when using mobile data. More bizarre can open using mobile data, switch wifi on and switch off mobile data and continues to work. Same with BBC Sounds

    Great app. Much better than ITV hub n All 4. You can favourite the programmes you love and download programs. Which itv hub does let u do that. Also they are available for much longer than ITV hub

  9. martin thompsom-avatar

    martin thompsom


    Not worth the trouble. Use to work OK, but now the app downloads to 99,%, then tries a second time then gives up All other apps download but not this one! Suggests every way to sort it but complete waste of time.

    It does the basics but never remembers what episode you are on. I suppose it could be worse. It could have been totally ruined like BBC sounds.

    previously worked on my android tv box, now doesn't with this version. it won't startup - get a short lived splash screen then nothing.

  12. Brian-avatar



    It generally works well, but no picture in picture support, not full screen as horrible black borders and not high quality streaming.

  13. Sam Hepworth-avatar

    Sam Hepworth


    They have removed the ability to download possibly due to bugs which is very annoying. The video format is also not good. For some silly reason they put black bars at the top and bottom of 21:9 content to make it 16:9 which makes the viewing experience poor on wide screen phones. Also max resolution is 720p which is poor as most screens are at least 1080p and content does not look good casting on 1440p /4k displays. A shame as the rest of the app is very well made.

  14. Nicholas Quarrell-avatar

    Nicholas Quarrell


    "Auto play" doesn't work. Both the Google Play Store and Amazon App Store versions stop playing at random intervals which makes watching anything very frustrating. Playback overlays (everything that's appears on pause and play) very intrusive and takes up fast to much screen real estate. Image quality isn't great either. But it is nice to have a load of Attenborough programmes available.

  15. John Smith-avatar

    John Smith


    Doesn't compare with the smart TV or desktop app, FYI series one is not in the series 4, and I don't by default want to watch the last episode aired! when you have a multi series show, display the series number first , and then the individual episodes (like PC/STV)

  16. Zarä Rumsey-avatar

    Zarä Rumsey


    Enjoy what bbc to toffer but its hard to navigate whats newly available without going through all the programmes. It would be great if like all other apps, when a new programe/boxset is available that its in a category of its own .. just in, new or something like that. Also will masterchef...celeb masterchef....masterchef professionals ever be available to re watch from previous years??

  18. Inst Test-avatar

    Inst Test


    Paid for by license fee, coded by incompetents. Can't close screen keyboard to see search results. Can't scroll through episodes of a series unless searching(which is useless) or even while watching one episode. In other words about as useless and irrelevant as the current BBC playhouse for talentless boring media people (actors all gone) Worrying that the coders of this app were obviously so thick they couldn't work out how to install Netflix/Prime to compare functions..

    My experience with this app is amazing and wonderful. It has got all of the documentaries and TV shows that I want to watch

  20. Joel Arshad-avatar

    Joel Arshad


    Content wise it's pretty good but my biggest issue is the Digital On-Screen Graphic. I don't see why this app has to have it when All 4 and ITV Hub doesn't. You won't find me watching any movies on the iPlayer since the DOG ruins my viewing experience and I refuse to watch football or rugby on this app because the DOG gets in the way of the scores (at the very least the DOG could be moved to the right hand side for sports). I will change my rating to 5 stars if the DOG is done away with.

  21. Ann Hardy-avatar

    Ann Hardy


    Generally it's great I can watch programmes I've missed or I can watch a series all in one go if I want to. The only problem I have and that might be a local thing, sometimes programmes can take a long time to load or stop and restart mid programme but as I say that might me down to the local internet connection.

  22. Katy Keene-avatar

    This app highly needs some development!! I couldn't watch anything when i Tried to Download in HD quality. For the record, The videos did get downloaded But was Completely Blank, and i was so Disappointed. Next, At first when i used the app it worked fine, But the next day it was a complete disaster. It was so annoying that once i watched an Episode to view the other i had to Open the App like More than 10 times. There was literally So many Errors occuring while Playing a Video.

  23. Jason Ryan-avatar

    It would benefit from a new presentation , having to scroll all the way down to find your saved programs is a bit dated now , maybe some header banners with drop down menu's would be better than the layout it has now. Well done on finally updating the player so you can stream in actual full screen . It took a while, though it's a poor man's fix as it doesn't adjust the display just zooms it to fit screen and with this you loose part of the top and bottom display , So not a real fix !

  24. Len Kingston-avatar

    Len Kingston


    Latest update 14 Sept seems to have wiped my downloaded programmes and the app will only work with an internet connection. This means I won't be able to watch as many BBC programmes as I usually download when I can get good WiFi then watch later. Very disappointing.

    Great app and I only didn't give it 5 stars as I use the app on my Firestick and when I click pause on live TV and then I come back to play, it plays from live so I have to rewind to where I paused which is rather annoying. Apart from that i can watch all bbc channels without having a cable which is great.

  27. Damion Humphreys-avatar

    Damion Humphreys


    Good programming but the app is very outdated now. Please put some development in on the UI, it's not up to the same standard as other streaming services. Also, the ability to skip tiltles and recaps in programmes would be incredibly useful and again would be in line with other services.

    I live in a poor signal area but this wasn't a problem previously and the app worked perfectly. However, since the last update I cannot get on this app at home at all. App just keeps buffering. Extremely disappointing and has now become an unenjoyable experience. Please can this be sorted out asap.

  30. Denise Barnes-avatar

    I rarely watch TV,and began to feel my licence fee was wasted. I have been watching Silent witness online,and enjoyed it,thanks. It would be good if the app would keep track of where I stopped watching. Just downloaded the app on my new Samsung,OK.

    BBC is supposed to be Public Broadcaster and we pay £157 a year for that privilege - only to find that this app no longer works on a number of our older devices. Strange that Amazon can offer much more content for £80 a year with many other benefits and provide an app that works on those same older devices without any difficulty!

  33. MIKE-avatar



    This is by far the best TV App available, no adverts or buffering like the others, you can just get stuck into what you want to watch instantly. You can also download for free. Its brilliant, no stress like the other apps forcing you to go premium.

  34. Jason Duggan-avatar

    Jason Duggan


    The app is ok but has a few flaws that could do with being addressed. The option to download to an SD card if available instead of just the device storage.

  35. Farzana Begum-avatar

    The app is updated and I have good Internet connection , but every time I watch something, it buffers and goes blurry then it takes a while to start loading hence the 1 star.

  36. David Smale-avatar

    David Smale


    And again this app has lost all my downloaded programs, lost the download option on every program and is just basically woeful. No one ever replies to any comments or apologise and the whole thing is pretty disastrous. I'm a big supporter of the BBC but they need to give us an alternative 3rd. Party app to let us watch our paid for programs if they are (still) unable to come up with an app that is actually reliable.

    I used to love BBC for excellent news and sport coverage. Now it sickens and depresses me. With their determined, super 'woke' agenda, boringly predictable 'right on', left leaning. The corrupted news coverage, deliberately stoking up Covid-19 fear to the extreme, betraying a greedy agenda to generate ever more of the news feast provided by it, regardless of the long term effect on the mental health of the population. I will never cast my eyes in your direction again BBC. All apps binned.

    Utterly hopeless. Given that despite not using the Bolshevik Broadcasting Company for anything other than the occasional football match or some snooker I still have to pay an extortionate fee I hoped for better. Do not pause during live sport or the app will not remember where you paused. Starting instead from the new live position and ruining the contest as a spectacle. Stop the "licence" fee now and take adverts instead. Please. Put some money back into a failing country and stop stealing it.

    Iplayer is a great app,works perfectly has good subtitles when you do not want to use earphones in public.Would have put 100% if not for. My only complaint with iplayer is the fact that when I use it on my 'own' Tv in my 'own' house I am asked to sign in!! I have 'Always' paid my licence! I should not have to sign in! You can check!! We all know the old saying,'We know who you are!' That meant for ones who are NOT paying! So stop penalising us who are paying,or we will stop paying! Thanks!

    I have tried numerous times to sign in and every time I reset password I get told it is wrong, I tried to open a new account but can't unless I get a new email address. I did email help desk last year. When kept being told my account did not exist, but could not open new one. Got no response except a feedback form asking 'how did we do'. There is no polite response to that. Uninstalling now.

    This is the best app ever! We got to watch our favorite shows all together as a family. It also has a wide selection of shows. The only thing that bugged me was the searching, if you've watched a show before and really enjoyed it but don't remember the name of the show then you will NEVER find it again. But over all, this app is amazing!

    Do not download this update. The bbc is only allowing people with brand new devices to watch iplayer and will black screen you after 20 mins on previous update and give no function at all with this update. Be warned, they are no longer a service provider for the masses, as of this week they are limiting viewing online. They cannot even make their website work across standard browsers, or their app work. Who are their web designers.. Tut. BBC excuses, tiring and paying for it ! Refund?

    This app holds so many good shows, documentaries and other tv experiences,and it locks them behind a location wall making expat brits unable to watch their favourite shows. If there were a way to pay the bbc to watch these shows outside of the uk, i would be happy to pay as much as i would pay for netflix (roughly £10 a month). The bbc could use this money to help finance their shows as well.

    I love this app, but it's difficult to navigate if you're new to it like me. It would be good if the lists of programmes we 'like' showed up in a list like on Netflix, it would be so much easier! I dare say I'd probably give the app 5 stars once I've got to grips with it!!

    Love iPlayer but the search function needs alot of work. Unless you input the *exact* title of the programme you're looking for you'll never find it because it pulls out results for every single word in the title but can't seem to put them all together to produce the most likely result. EG a search for the Horizon special on Coronavirus resulted in dozens progs about coronavirus and dozens of other Horizon episodes except that particular one. How? APPARENTLY DEVS DON'T LISTEN TO FEEDBACK HERE.

    Probably one of the worst interfaces of all streaming apps, why do you have that information bar visible so long into a programme, why is searching such a pain, why can't I watch on holiday abroad when I pay my license fee? Also notice YOUR caring BBC doesn't ever reply to any feedback on here.

    The sign language guy! Really? It's 2018 why on earth is that on by default taking up 1/3rd of my tv?! For the 1% that need him they should have a setting to enable him. Bad design BBC! Also there is not a lot of content, DIY SOS has 30 series but yet only 6 episodes on iplayer, what's the point in that???

    Frustrating the app refuses to sign in stating sign in unavailable which is rubbish cos you can sign in online though you cant watch shows online it keeps bouncing you back to the useless app which obviously you cant use. Complete waste of time downloading!

    Works just about as is but has a very outdated interface. The menu bar should be a sidebar to utilise the vertical space, as scrolling for the live News channel is cumbersome. Little to no customisation on the playback itself. You can't play something and browse. No zoom to fill in the screen on my 16:10 resolution. No pop-out player. BBC Media Applications team is very far behind on utilising modern day interface techniques compared to competitors.

    I like BBC I Player, and use it, but it is annoying when a series that you are watching disappears when you are only half way through it, and you give little or no warning ! Also a Film that I was watching fairly recently, The Deer Hunter, disappeared and I had Not finished watching it !

    Lets face it, it can't compete with netflix for content, but Netflix would lose some of its finest televisual content if the BBC pulled the plug. BBC iplayer paved the way for all the big streaming apps and although they dont compete on figures they destroy most of the competition on content. If I had one complaint why do bbc America get first showing on a lot of the big hits when we pay the licence fees. I will be bringing this up with the BBC ASAP

    Suddenly almost everything stopped working. I've tried watching letter after letter in Alphablocks & it keeps telling me content is not available. Each letter I've tried says available for over a year but when I try to play each one, it says content is not available.
