  1. John Hartnup-avatar

    Infested with adverts and NO subtitles !! Another app full of pointless scamming ads !clicking on the S icon didn't work if the ads are not a scam why can I not skip them ? All of these so called "catch up" apps are designed to force people to watch scamming adverts !! You even start so called live programs 2,3,4 or even 5 minutes past the posted time in a childish attempt to spoil recording the program !!! Your ad supported to increase your profits NOT anything to do with keeping it free .

  2. Popper Pea-avatar

    Update: Bug repaired. Thank you. Changed from a 1 star to a 5 star. The app works brilliantly on my Samsung A40 phone. I can also Chromecast which is brilliant rather than watching on my phone's screen. And a bonus I can Chromecast live TV which some of the on demand apps don't support. It is now my favourite on demand app. Thank you

  3. David Woods-avatar

    Absolutely fantastic if you only want to watch adverts! I have a P20 Pro & when screen sharing with my LG TV the ads play perfect as soon as the program starts the screen goes black 🤷‍♂️ the program continues to play on my phone however what a load of ✊💦...

  4. Andy-avatar

    Terrible on Sony Bravia. Cannot fast forward or play. Ads play for no reason if you stop or start. Completely untested and picture quality is terrible. Honestly please employ some professional software developers instead of a bunch of amateurs that cut corners and release untested software

  5. Pooh Sticks-avatar

    First run after registering,casting didn't work.. reinstalled & casting works but the needing 2 log in thing, every time you open the app is bizarre & the latest update has done nothing to address, doesn't connect & it seems more laggy than ever... tired of it..uninstalled..🙄

  6. HijabiGirlxoxo 14-avatar

    HijabiGirlxoxo 14


    I love this app, the ads are very short but the only annoying thing is that the subtitles aren't there anymore. The subtitles aren't working so please fix this!!

  7. PG's Tips-avatar

    Dropping my rating by one star. The app is working a lot better but why do I have to sign in with my email and password everytime? Can't the app even remember my email address? It's a pain in the arse.

  8. Shayan Latif-avatar

    Every time I go on to my programme, there are ads that block my way. Why not a 5 second ad? Why 30 seconds?

  9. Deb Drew-avatar

    My first time and brilliant picture and sound. My only complaint the adverts we see enough on TV

  10. Ravi Mahay-avatar

    Nice app. Not had many issues Really fun and interesting shows,the type of shows that you don't get on any other channel. More of a channel aiming towards reality TV shows 3 issues with it 1)Browsing a particular genre, & you find something, click it for info, once done and want to go back to where you left off in the list, it takes you all the way back to the top of the list, so you have to scroll through again 2)Can't pay to remove add 3) Accidentally quit, then you have to watch adds again

    If you are deaf or hard of hearing, don't bother with getting this app, there is no option to turn on closed captions / subtitles.

  12. Sarah Thomas-avatar

    Just downloaded the app, opens but states it's not working at the moment. Will this be fixed soon? UPDATE - This now works fine.

  13. Arlene Magill-avatar

    Still can't sign into the app, this has been ongoing since November. I know my email address and password are correct

  14. L D-avatar

    Sort out the app pls. Keeps crashing and screen turns black. This was before AND after update so bug hasn't been fixed.

  15. Alan Beattie-avatar

    Update to original review below. App is working across platforms, would recommend this for streaming channel 5 and more. --------- Can't sign in using email I have used on another platform (Kindle), asks to reset password then tells me my email address isn't valid. If can't even do a fundamental task like signing in then what hope is there. Needs to get the basics fixed.

  16. Ralph Reynolds-avatar

    I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling and it just doesn't play anything. I'm using a Nokia 7.2 with up-to-date Android 9. I'm actually in hospital presently and internet TV is my only entertainment. The fact it doesn't even play, is pretty bad. Live TV seems to work, but no catch-up. Why release software that doesn't work?

  17. Claire McGreevy-avatar

    Claire McGreevy


    Edited for new version: Working fine yesterday on old version but now the option to log in has been reinstated it didn't recognise my email so I had to re-register. All logged in fine but when I try to view something I just get the "getting episode" message followed by a black screen. Back button won't work so you have to close and reopen the app. Poor job My5, not impressed downgraded to 1 star.

  18. SL-avatar

    Black screen since last update. Can't sign in, created new account and still just black screen! Even if I don't sign in still won't play

  19. Victoria Jordan-avatar

    Victoria Jordan


    Awful. Unable to watch anything at all just a blank screen, then cant click back. Tried logging in and out, and starting again. Same thing happens every time. Come on 5 sort it out!!!!

  20. leanne wilson-avatar

    Edited down to 1 star as I still can't watch anything it been going on for 6/7 weeks and I will definitely be deleting my5 app. Well it was fine until it updated and now can't watch anything or steam anything either as it keeps on saying that you unexpected error: something went wrong . Please try again later and u have two button with retry or restart app please fix. As I have installed my 5 app and then re installed but still the same and I haven't be able to watch my 5 for about 2 weeks now.

  21. Tim Rubs-avatar

    Error with playback. Doesn't happen with other players. Rubbish app.

  22. Steve Rowe-avatar

    Got this on my fire tv box and the sound quality is terrible. Sounds like streaming through dial up

  23. PlyAlly Raay-avatar

    Absolutely the worst App on my devices I have ever come across...doesnt work. Cuts off, buffers...Retry, Retry, Retry but have had no other problems with any other apps buffering! I hate the app should be banned especially when you carnt watch the things you want to catch up on that are now building up and becoming more and more episodes to watch because of the bad service

  24. Nicola Edwards-avatar

    No where to log a fault with the app. Sign in required each time. I can browse shows but once i confirm to play get a blank screen and app freezes. Using most upto date verson of app, has happened since the last few days of feb.

  25. TheGaminMRK MRKvlogs-avatar

    TheGaminMRK MRKvlogs


    I literally cannot play anything. I looks like it's about to play and then just turns to a black screen. Please fix this.

  26. Simon Baker-avatar

    I absolutely love this app and Channel 5, wonderful range of programming and lots of new programmes to enjoy. Are there any plans to make the programmes available in HD on this app ? That would make it even better!! Thanks.

  27. Erica Meddins-avatar

    I have to sign in every time I use it now on my phone and it won't play anything now, I get a error on it or just a blank screen that's why I'm giving it a 1 star, very poor when it use to work perfect. I can't watch any of my saved programs now so not at all happy!

  28. Noreen Alexander-avatar

    Noreen Alexander


    After new update log in not recognised, so had to reset. Now have to log in every time & cannot watch anything, get a black screen when trying to watch live & catch up. Cannot go back when it fails, have to close then reopen app. Please fix soon.

  29. Amanda King-avatar

    I have never been so upset in my entire life, every show that I wanted to watch had no subtitles which is utter useless to me as I am deaf, I have spent at least 2 hours trying to find something that I would like but obviously there is no subtitles, it is clear that I have wasted my time downloading this stupid app of yours, you would think in 2020 there would be subtitles or closed captions but it is clear that my5 has not caught up in this century!

  30. georgethetrucker150-avatar



    I'm not sure what is happening with the My5 service - app and TV. Trying to catch up on Red Arrows Take America, but get "Unexpected Error" message each time I try to watch... Been trying to watch episode 3 since it was first aired. Not there!

  31. lee bowness-avatar

    keeps failing to cast to TV from phone. Checked all updates. Also issues playing from lap top too.... Now it wont play anything at all. We have tried on 3 different devices and nothing. App opens up as normal but as soon as you cast or try to watch anything the screen goes blank and freezes!

  32. Wendy Davis-avatar

    Very varied range of programmes and channels. Well recommended.

  33. Antoinette West-avatar

    Antoinette West


    Hi my name is Antoinette west am really really annoyed right now because my 5 is not working i have reported this problem over and over and nothing is getting done about its i keep on getting playback ERROR JW-2999 so as far as i am concerned this my 5 App is a load of rubbish and needs to be taken down i should think that ever viewer is having the same problem with there catch up on demand tv i have rated this new my 5 APP only 1 star i would of rated my 5 a lot higher if the App was working

  34. kevin buck-avatar

    This app is now totally useless to myself and everybody else with a chromecast as it will not allow you to cast it whatever you have done with it is a right balls up now it worked perfectly before you changed it get it back the way it was otherwise your so called will be losing a lot of viewers who have chromecast's

  35. Vanessa Walker-avatar

    Great except countless adverts when watching on my mobile, I understand you need them but they always crash and now the app constantly crashes when trying to load any show, I hope this is resolved soon as I enjoy the app normally

  36. Danielle Lavis-avatar

    Usually a reliable app but since the recent update I cant get things to play after selecting an episode and the app on the TV only has episodes date back a month. Hope this is fixed soon.

  37. Cor Cor-avatar

    Doesn't work on Google Pixel XL. It rotates to play in landscape, then turns black and stops responding. EDIT: Worked the next day (Sunday) suggesting it was a backend issue and app was fine. Re-rated Thanks.

  38. Kerami Roberts-avatar

    Can't use since update. Whether I sign in or not it's not letting me play live TV... Which is frustrating. Can this be fixed? Thanks

  39. Cheryl Hines-avatar

    love this app normally but its not working. nothing will play at all just says retry!!! been like this for days now. i can't catch up on my tv. dont bother installing. waste of time

  40. mrbunny-avatar

    No longer works, I tried the app on both my phones and tablets and everytime I try to play anything it just crashes. Completely useless if a streaming app cannot stream. It use to work but since the update it has not worked for months.

  41. Nick Bayliss-avatar

    Since the update, I can not play any programmes and can not cast either. This is happening on all three devices that have previously worked! What is the fix?

  42. Laura Nantel-avatar

    I have been unable to load anything in the app since the update yesterday. Every time I go in, it looks like it is loading and then the screen goes blank. So frustrating!

  43. Tom Rawlinson-avatar

    Why no option to download programmes for offline viewing? This is the only app that I've experienced for the main TV channels that doesn't let you download programs.

  44. Celestine Francis-avatar

    Celestine Francis


    Deserves below one start to be honest. It simply just doesn't work, at all! Not even works via desktop site.

  45. Hamzah S-avatar

    Please update so that you can actually watch something. Doesn't work after new update and is so slow. Terrible App, needs to be more like iplayer

  46. Fue-avatar

    This will not work on my android boxes? What's going My5 gutted it did work but you stopped it why ? Tut tut Devs

  47. Barbara Petula Cottoy Williams-avatar

    Barbara Petula Cottoy Williams


    Can not cast, the set up code dose not appear on screen. To get started.😐

  48. Alf Haywood-avatar

    Have not got a TV code the app needs chaining so people with out tv code can put it on phone with the app opening straight away look at ITV and bbc apps thay open on phone straight away after down loading this app is like something from a mikey mouse film

  49. outlawbebop 2008-avatar

    outlawbebop 2008

    Poor app can not cast but will play ads not worth it for the few good shows they have I tryed updating the app still the same 4 ads fully playing then cuts of foe the show

  61. Vish Nosib-avatar

    Since an update to use it's own login (rather than allowing social media e.g Google sign in) it is not allowing programs to be cast

  62. Philip Johnson-avatar

    Installed and uninstalled a number of times and the app still want work . I will not install again. Minus 5 try again

  63. Vicki Ashton-avatar

  64. DHT HEP-avatar

    Once inside the app it says log in but no matter where i tap the screen nothing happening(same thing on both my devices)

    Can not watch any videos!!! Soo annoying when I can not also watch them in the website online! What is going on!?

  71. Tracy Cummins-avatar

    Love my 5, would really love it if it had the sony channel's but am guessing as it's mainly American drama's that might be why you can't include it. Still great .

  72. Stephen Holder-avatar

    This app doesn't work ever since the update I can't watch any programmes i just get a blank screen

  73. Charlotte Wills-avatar

    Downloaded the new app at the end of last year. It has almost never worked. Every time I go to play something I just get an 'Unexpected error' saying I need to retry or restart. Clicking either just sends me to a black screen. I try to log in with my account and get another error. Absolutely gutted. I used the old app all the time but this one I will have to delete.
