  • Great app. But ‘Watching’ programmes disappear!?

    By maN Oeuvre
    When I’m sometimes looking in my ‘watching’ programmes section, on my iPlayer 12.9, first model/iOS 10.3.3: Some programmes just disappear!? So I have to research the show again. Even though I’ve not finished watching. BBC... HELP!
  • Passionate for bbc radio

    By passionate for BBC Radio
    But this app is really disappointing. I agree with Little Boy Jonny.... why should I have to sign in and open an account when I can listen without trouble on an internet radio or computer? An app would have been nice, that’s all. More chances to listen
  • iPad keyboards support

    By Orafazzx
    Why not? it's so simple... would be so useful if we allowed us to use shortcuts in ipad like volume control and play/pause. Please, think about it!
  • Sort out your downloading issues!!!

    By Aktisme
    For crying out loud, what are we paying a TV licence for when the BBC can’t employ the right staff to eliminate the bugs in their iPlayer app? You release updates regularly saying you’re working on the download issues and yet users continue to download experience DOWNLOAD ISSUES!!!! It’s infuriating!! Get it sorted once and for all.
  • iPhone X

    By cheryldog
    When will this support full iPhone X screen viewing?
  • What use if download doesn't work

    By ajshabeer
    Think it's been almost 1 year? since download has stopped working. Come on get a grip. Unfortunately 1 star is the least that can be given.
  • An unknown error occurred.

  • Won’t let me sign in.

    By Woody 10
    Can’t even sign in to my account. Click the button and it kicks me out. Unusable.
  • Box sets

    By joeltsnake
    You’ve added some box sets. Great. I was halfway through series 2 of Peaky Blinders, as friends said it was worth watching, then almost without warning, every episode up to series 3 Ep.4 has been removed! If you’re going to make box sets available, at least allow a reasonable amount of time for customers to watch them. We don’t all binge watch 4 episodes a day.
  • Like the older version.

    Have used this app and is awesome, but try for leaving feedback and reviews it’s probably the easiest and fastest way of leaving 30 second video reviews. Give it a try and boost your businesses SEO through the roof.
