Customer Reviews

Responsive but Buggy

When this app works - which is most of the time - it's amazing: the interface is clean, it's simple to find shows based on name, category, etc. However there are bugs such as the occasional crash to the home screen. The most frustrating for me is when videos sometimes don't play where I left off so I have to scrub through the video (and get caught by some ads along the way) to find where I left off.

Acts up at live start of every show

I don't understand why the RTE Player iPhone app takes 2-3 minutes to start the upcoming new programme live view. Before it was play continuous to next show. Now you have to keep closing app and refreshing until new programme appears. Missing start of the show.


This app is fantastic for catching up on all the latest soaps and other programmes I am talking bollix as I'm sitting on a kerb by myself looking for a friends at 3:51 in the morning if anyone has any further info please help
