What's New in Version 1.4.9
- HDMI fix
Good but could be better
With its immense back catalogue of past sporting events that it's covered, it could surely bring these back to the i player and get a march on the competition. Also I can't use this with my chrome cast which is annoying.
Good, but not practical
For that price I should be able to see live TV.
It is not for free
The app can be downloaded but to use it, there's a minimum monthly payment requirement (less than 6 GBP)
