Customer Reviews


This app is awful everything you watch freezes after a few minutes I haven't been able to watch a full programme and the ad breaks are terrible although they wouldn't be too bad if you could just watch the full programme

What's happened?

This app was perfect (apart from too many ads)

Since the latest the picture quality is poor, play back keeps freezing and I have subtitles I can't get rid of! Help! Or roll back to previous version

Very disappointed

I have to agree with all the other review, too many adds, the app freezing and that's with my excellent wifi. At least go back before the last update which done nothing for improving the app. C'mon RTE, get you're act together
