    Will not work on my window 8.1 Nokia 625 phone. Have just uninstalled and reinstalled to ensure I have latest version. Continues to show dialogue box after selecting play saying can't run programme right now. No explanation of why or what has to be OK for it to run. App is a complete waste of time.

    Haven't used the app in a while. Was working just great no problems streaming a missed program. Tried using yesterday and when stream starts all I now get is a message saying can't play this program right now. Have uninstalled and reinstalled but still the same. I'm using Nokia Lumia 520 what have they done to this app.

    Same as previous - unable to load this app anymore. Don't bother installing. Please sort this problem out.

    It seems OK so far, however the lack of HD is disturbing on my Lumia 1320...

    Unwatchable due to continually buffering even with fast Internet.

    Terrible This app is appalling the old one worked no problem but they have decided to go for style over substance. The only way I can get to watch a programme with out it freezing constantly is to uninstall and then reinstall what a joke!!!!!!!!

    iPlayer doesn't load HD or offer to download content in HD even on my Lumia 1520
