    Words cannot describe how **** this app is. As a license payer should be better than this. Shame on you BBC !!!!!!!!! Upgrade needed for bug fix!!!!!

    Great App on my Windows 8.1 phone. Watched whole episode of The Musketeers on this, which is action sequenced and non stop and not once did it slow down to buffer content playback. Be grateful that we have this and can watch episodes after they've finished! 10/10 from me!

    Absolute shocking rubbish totally and completely unusable, got very high speed mobile data connection yet jerks, freezing and now im going through hair loss. BBC should be punched in the face by Jeremy Clarkson for such a poor app. If it were apple or android the BBC would be knocking one out all over that.

    Looks great!!! ..and that's where I all stops. Buffering is a huge issue. This app doesn't work. Looks great. Doesn't do the actual job.

    It's good but I was half way through the series of the next step and I can't view it anymore. It just sends me to the cbbc websites. Luckily I can still watch it online or on my iPod. Otherwise its a great app and it looks stylish.
