    Was great used every day but since phone update to 8.1 there is no tv guide for every channel. Sad news and pretty much useless until they fix the issue and it sounds like its happening to most users, shame.

    Yes it does not seem to work at first but if you pin the channel you want to watch then press it, it works.

    Stopped working so uninstalled and reinstalled. Still not working. Windows phone 8.1 another example of how the last windows update screwed up my phone.

    I have tried a number of channels and just get the message "programme guide" is not available. So it might need more work.

    Pity as this used to work so well But thanks to the reviewer for pointing out that a channel has to be pinned to work so its now of some use on 8
