Customer Reviews

Disappointed - Removed live rewind

One of the best features about player is being able to rewind live TV for up to 2 hours. This feature was available on all their platforms, but now with the recent update the ability to rewind live TV from your phone is removed and something that doesn't make sense to do, since it worked perfectly before without issues. So to sum it up am disappointed in the decision made.

Brilliant but…

This app is the one of the best things I have on my phone!! but since it tries to update it self it pauses and sticks so I can't catch up 😥 so I thought if I deleted it it would go back to normal but not the case it just won't download!! So how am I meant to catch up on Eastenders now !? C x

Downloaded programmes "cannot be played"

Really disappointed in this app. Downloaded some shows to watch on a long train journey and I was really looking forward to it, but none of them work. It keeps saying the downloaded programme cannot be played. There had been no sign earlier that they hadn't downloaded properly either. Evening, ruined; not happy in the slightest.
