Customer Reviews

Don't waste your money

Purchased to watch in Spain in all good faith. All I can get is about 3 seconds of the program intro and then only audio. Payment went through quick enough through. Also tried to get to app support and development web pages and nothing downloads. Like to hear if anybody has had any feedback on all the reviews given?

Do not purchase!

Literally the worst app ever! I have a very addictive personality and however sad it may seem, I was so happy that I would be able to watch Love Island... this was not the case!! I emailed 9 times, tweeted, direct messaged and tried calling the help line although it didn't work - no response at all! My holiday pass is now up and I was unable to even load any shows!!!

Awful app - do not buy

I purchased this app and tried to use it in Spain but it didn't work at all. I have contacted itv but they are no help and do not reply. I'm finding it difficult to get a refund as well. Don't waste your time on this app, find another way to watch your favourite shows as paying ITV to not be able to watch them on holiday is ridiculous.
