Great app!


I’ve looked at previous reviews but I don’t get any bugs or glitches. The app runs smoothly and is very easy to navigate as well, I’ve only given 4 stars though because I want new features like being able to have a ‘skip 10 seconds’ button etc but I’m sure they are coming in the near future, overall great app.

What is the point of this App?!


Installed this App and registered (including an extra step where you have to confirm the email link, WHY? in 2018?!), providing them with loads of data about myself, only to find there’s no way to watch their programmes live. Did a search for the programme I want and got some patronising message some wag of a copywriter has included along the lines of “we’ve tried using a metal detector but we can’t find it”. Don’t waste your time with this App! Uninstalling this App.

Brill app but still not on Apple TV


Love this app, can catch up on programmes missed or even watch an episode 1 week ahead, but disappointed there isn’t an Apple TV app
