    Can't install on nvidia shield 2019 (tubular) and it no longer works correctly on 2015 shield due to screen split corruption after recent OS shield upgrade. Please fix.

  • guest-avatar

    radio I can’t install it on NVIDIA Shield TV (2019)

  • guest-avatar

    vpn With the Oreo (Shield Experience 7) update, pause no longer works correctly. When resuming after pause, although sound continues, the picture is still frozen. Only workaround is to skip back a few seconds and then play again. Not a process that instils feelings of confidence in the platform for the rest of the family!

    apk re: Paul G , it started working again after 24 hours. A network error/change from BBC I assume. Works very nicely with the Shield remote. Now, Nvidia, if you'd make a compatible version of other British TV apps (All 4 / ITV Player etc) it would be wonderful since the app makers themselves seem unwilling to add Android TV compatibility!

  • guest-avatar

    deutschland It doesn't work anymore, iplayer says its not supported on the shield tv. What's going on! I'm in the UK but the app opens and says it's not supporting anymore. Help us please...

  • guest-avatar

    download Rubbish, it doesn't even have an HD option... And whilst we're at it, the Shield is lacking all the major catch up apps, e.g. All4, ItvPlayer, Demand5 (My5) etc, Nvidia Shield TV the best streaming box? I don't think so.

  • guest-avatar

    app This used to be utter garbage. But the BBC seem to of changed to an adaptive algorithm so now the quality you get is good. I haven't done a true A B test but it is at least 90% of the quality the samsung tv does nativley. I was only watching cartoons. IE the really negative reviews are out of date (they were bang on at the time though)

  • guest-avatar

    vpn free this app keep disappearing from my home screen and i have to uninstall and reinstall the app every time i want to use it on my nvidia shield tv 6.0. does anyone have a sugestion on how to lock it on the home screen? i would be much appreciate if nvidia reply.

  • guest-avatar

    doctor who The blacks are light grey, what's going on?! The user interface has dark, near black elements, however video playback shows things that should be black as light grey! The shield tv device shows true blacks properly on every other app, so I know my 4K OLED is not set up incorrectly. I have maybe more than 10 other bbc iplayer programs that don't have this problem.

  • guest-avatar

    amazon prime Is there any way to remove this thing? I tried disabling it but the launch icons remain on the home screen. I don't pay for a TV license so ideally I don't want this thing which I never use visible on my screen in case TV licensing come round and try to fine me for having it...

  • guest-avatar

    Glad to have it available.. but 1080p please. Frame rate switching would be helpful too, as pretty much all the BBC output will be 50/25fps and it doesn't look good when the Shield is outputting 60fps.

  • guest-avatar

    Very unreliable and temperamental. Makes the box pretty useless without getting onto iPlayer

  • guest-avatar

    Very poor picture, not possible to view in HD.

  • guest-avatar

    Doesn't work on the Nvidia Shield. Rubbish

  • guest-avatar

    This app is poor. Totally broken!
