    Complete pile of **** that refuses to search or playback. Avoid like the plague. ***** sake bbc, why would you do this?

    I don't mind that the BBC have separated out the t.v. And radio but yet again Window apps are lagging behind and it isn't possible on this version (and it is on Android and IOS) to download programmes to watch later. I don't want to waste data downloading programmes live, so effectively I might just as well wait till I get home and watch it on catch up t.v. I know Android uses a separate app to achieve this, so why can't the BBC do the same for Windows?

    Painful, really painful, not worth keeping, such a shame as well.

    Cannot watch a thing, constantly stuttering. Useless.

    Needs downloads! Not much good without as reliant on WiFi and tend to have bigger devices available in WiFi locations

    Still falling far behind android and I phone. Programmed almost unwatchable with so many issues streaming. Even on the fastest of connections there is no smooth playback.

    Absolute garbage. Buffering is a joke, cannot watch one episode of anything without it hanging every two minutes. Pointless to even use unless you have the patience of a particularly patient saint.

    The buffering is a serious irritant - get this sorted BBC can you not see this is a widespread criticism?
