What's New in Version 4.6.0
You can now watch live TV for your home nation; simply choose from Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland in Settings.
We’ve also fixed various bugs, so you can now:
- Unplug your headphones without the app crashing;
- Dismiss notifications while watching and it won’t cause the video to buffer.
Love the app and the ability to download programmes & watch when you're not online. Helped tonnes during a recent long flight!
However, two main issues:
1. I have 4G with unlimited data - I should be able to have the choice to download even when I am not connected to wifi.
2. When I download programmes over wifi, it seems I need to leave the app open. Would be better if it just downloaded in the background. Especially when you have a queue of programmes downloading.
Overall a great app, but would be 5 stars with the above implemented
Unable to watch downloaded progs without data connection
Great app, but 1 issue - used to be able to watch out and about without a data connection, now with latest version an annoying 'can't connect to I player' appears and won't go away, once this is fixed it'll be back to its best!
I got this and u can watch free episodes and series of thing s for example i looove cbbc and it's all on there so for those who say its rubish it's amazing oh and by the way mi i player dosent crash so sorry for the ones that it does
