  • Tv app

    By Mandyliv
    Very happy with this app, watch lots of my British shows
  • Works but...

    By MickyMarie
    Can you improve it to make it possible to find episodes? Searching doesn't work well for that either. I like the live tv though.
  • So far so good

    By 16becks!
    This beats trying to use a VPN, and so far it's been worth the money. Interface is a work in progress. I do like how you have the option to watch live as well.
  • No Sound!

    By capecodjune
    Was excited to see some BBC shows. Despite viewing fine, there was no sound. No contact information to try to fix or return charge. Quite disheartening.
  • Pretty good

    By Quin3
    Works most of the time, some times is slow and video pauses
  • So Happy To Have These Shows

    By Passionately Alive
    So happy to have access to these shows! Once navigation is fixed it will be even better!
  • UK Player

    By eckles1
    Was so pleased to finally have access to the BBC. Worked for about a month, but not anymore! Contacted the web designer without any resolution to the problem. All I get is an arrow with a line through it. Not recommended.
  • Used to be awesome, but constantly freezing

    By RichestMom
    I had previously given this app 5-stars, but for about a month now it's unusable. Constantly freezes. Has to be restarted with episodes restarting from beginning. Have removed & reloaded several times. Will revise rating if/when it's fixed.
  • Horizon View

    By HorizonView
    Really? Am I watching or trying to watch a totally different BBC I Player? I was so excited to finally have access to BBC TV...I'm still waiting...it comes on occasionally for about 60 seconds, or freezes up a few minutes into any program in any category, followed the words something like video cannot replay...time limit elapsed. Is it actually possible to view an entire program or even 10 minutes? Yes, I do have the appropriate OS and then some. I'm giving this ONE STAR. I tapped one star, but I'm not sure it's getting the message
  • Lagging and Freezing

    By LemmonTree07231858
    This app worked great for many months, but in the last two months there is a lot of lagging and freezing. At this point I am not able to watch a complete episode of any of the shows offered. So disappointing.
