What's New in Version 4.8.1

We've improved stability in the app so that it doesn't crash when deleting a downloaded programme when offline.

Audio no longer continues when you press the Lock button while watching a simulcast programme.

We've eliminated the ugly issue where the background moves when you select a programme page on the iPad.

As ever please send any feedback to @bbciplayer on Twitter or on

Good but videos have sign language it is annoying

Can there be all James Mays toy stories on it and the James Mays top toys and some videos when you go to them zoom out to show a person doing sign language and can you have the full Dr who the ultimate guide and all of the back in time for dinner two stars is the score I give to it its boring without all of them it's annoying with the sign language bits in the videos
Basically it makes you want to delete the app needs updating with them right now please I am saying a threat if you do not add these in the update I will literally delete the app and also these videos should last forever instead of a counter that when goes to 0 gets rid of the video

Why no 4G downloads

I mainly use when away from home.
I get very slow hotel wifi or super fast 4G on my unlimited data plan.
I could download programs in minutes over 4G, but your app won't let me.
Instead I try to use slow Hotel wifi and usually give up!


Great app, never had any issues, works perfectly with wifi or even 3G or 4G. I mostly use this app for watching documentaries during my work break time a good companion. Thumbs up.!!!!
