Customer Reviews

It was good before and just good now. Can't notice any changes

i can't notice any difference to be honest in the new update. It's still a good app for catching up on eastenders and other program's.. But there's always room for improvement like in anything. It works fine on the iPad Air

An Utterly Ruined App. Not Worth The One Star We Are Forced To Give!

Do the powers that be ever read these comments? Surely if shouldn't take this long to repair what used to be an excellent app. Since the latest update, as many others have said, the radio does not work on iPad. The separate radio player we are directed to is clearly aimed at the iPhone and is horrible to use on iPad. Please do something about this promptly, you are alienating many loyal listeners!

This is a downgrade. Don't update!

So they finally removed half of the functionality of the app - the radio content. It was so much better having tv and radio in 1 place. Radio app is totally substandard and unintuitive (it seems to be geared to what is playing live, at the expense of hiding the schedule / on demand content behind a maze of multiple taps). It's much slower to access and find what I want to listen to. I wish I hadn't updated.
