    @CBeebiesHQ I’m trying to get Bluey on iPlayer but most of the episodes come up with an error - do you know why? Also, can you make them all available on iPlayer at once - I’ve have 2 obsessed girls here!

  • Paul Stevens (@PaulStevensx) reported

    @annita_mcveigh Ok thanks, I'll try and get it on Freeview or iPlayer. Keep up the good work! 👍

  • Geraint Lloyd-Taylor (@GeraintLT) reported

    @Channel4 why is All 4 or whatever it’s called routinely unwatchable? The fibre broadband works fine - Netflix, Sky, Amazon, iPlayer all work perfectly. But All4 always gets stuck on the 4 dots of doom… for aaaages. I don’t have the patience. I just wish it worked properly.

    @muzzer_daftbat @WinderAsInMere Quality Sunday night mild peril! Is it on the iplayer?

  • Sharon Moncur (@SharonMoncur) reported

    Settled down to watch last night’s Holby City on record ... to find that after five years + of having it on permanent record it’s decided to stop recording. We can’t get iPlayer outside the U.K. Who knows why but a little irritating. Appreciate it’s a first world problem.

    @racefansdotnet @RacingLines My issue with this is a return to the days of crappy 30 mins build up shows. We are living in the golden era of coverage in the UK, in my opinion. I can't see how it would work on free TV. The BBC could use the red button / iPlayer but it's unlikely.

    @King_fisher123 @JarvieJudy I saw yesterday's, need to watch the ones I missed on iPlayer y'know I used to work for Estee Lauder! Looking forward to the 40s one!!

  • Cuzize Wurfit (@CuzIze) reported

    @rainy101 Apparently they ditched the alarm because it didn't work properly in iPlayer Radio. It worked fine for me, and was the main reason I used it. Maybe someone overslept and tried to sue them or something.

  • Make Your Message With Helen McNulty (@helenmcnulty) reported

    @Tweetinggoddess I am also not watching it Sam. I really wish I was though, but I have no telly and BBC iPlayer doesn't work here!

  • lau (@mooncbang) reported

    I want to binge watch this country again but bbc iplayer doesn't work here big sad

  • nikolatosic (@nikolatosic) reported

    @Rubberbandits Your documentary can only be seen in UK. I got this message: "BBC iPlayer only works in the UK. Sorry, it’s due to rights issues." I suggest switching to a platform made for the 21st century.

  • The Reverend (@TheReverendBlog) reported

    @themoneyshed not that we've noticed. We watched fly-boy and metal arm with no issues. iPlayer and netflix seem to be fine. But I presume they do buffer a small bit so that issues like me (short periods of broadband disconnection) don't cause viewing issues.

  • RaffertyRy 💙 (@RaffertyRy) reported

    BBC iPlayer app tot unresponsive on my 2014 Sony Bravia smart TV, model KDL-40W605B @SonyUK Is that one of the models BBC decided to cut off streaming to pls? Never had problem w. it till now. Was bad enough never being able to get ITV hub on Sony due to yr disagreement w. them

  • Justin Featherstone (@jfeatherstonemc) reported

    @EHowlett What a time for iPlayer issues! I remember binging the last episodes...
