    Buffering is an absolute joke, even with high speed internet videos are choppy at best! Sort it out!

    I don't understand what people are so annoyed about maybe its the update on the 29 but it seems fine on my Nokia Lumia 630. Completely capable of streaming and watching tv on demand. Sometimes sound is a tiny bit muffled or static though. I like the radio app being separate because I found it never worked before now it is superb. DOWNLOAD!!!

    This app isn't worth using because the viewing quality is terrible

    Hopeless, live sport doesn't support the Lumia 909

    Bog standard app, the least the BBC could do. It's slow and programmes don't stream properly. No download feature. Windows phones sell pretty decently in the UK, and licence fee payers deserve the same quality iOS and Android get. Sort it out for Windows 10.

    Managed to make this faulty app worse.

    Really..... A 2.8 rating??? You must be kidding! Sort it out, I didn't want to pay for Netflix but now it seems like I'm going to have to.😠

    Absolutely rubbish! The continual buffering is a joke.
