    What it says on the tin.

    Barely adequate, unreliable and needs microsoft/BBC to urgently upgrade add functions to this bench mark mobile service. Another e.g. of win8phone shooting itself or being shot in the foot. If its stopped working uninstall then reinstall.

    A really useful app. Enables you to watch previous days' programmes, all at good quality videos. Thanks a lot.

    Works fine. Quality is good, with no buffering. But then I am in the UK, which I have no doubt that those who are having "problems" aren't... IPlayer is only for UK residents...

    Almost useless. A strong WiFi signal, everything works but this.
