Customer Reviews

Great app!

This app is great and convenient. I thoroughly enjoy the accessibility of live programmes too as well as listing the most popular programmes. This app is great for kids on long travel journeys as you can download a programmes for them to watch. The app itself is easy to navigate around and is conventional too. However sometimes the programmes take a couple of seconds to load. However, all in all a great app and I would thoroughly recommend it to people of all varying age ranges!

Doesn't save your place anymore

Since the update, if I pause a programme and then come back to it - literally minutes later if the screen has locked - it goes back to the beginning. It used to always save my place if I was partway through a programme, even if I came back a couple of weeks later, now it can't even keep my place for seconds.

Did you not test this? Please fix it because it's so frustrating being sent back to the start every time you press pause!! Used to love this app.

I also hate the fact that you've taken the menu/download/favourites buttons off the screen so that I have to tap to open them each time. It just makes it cumbersome and slow and irritating to navigate. It used to be so convenient. They were tiny buttons so I don't understand why it's been changed to something less user friendly.

Seriously, just give us the old superior version back where pausing worked and navigating was quick and easy.

Great but annoying!!

I use this app a lot and it's always been very good until the last update. The actual update is good but it's so annoying how when your watching something and then have to pause/stop when you go back it starts the programme right at the beginning which is really annoying!! Apart from this great app and I would def recommend it :-)
