iPlayer Issues Reports

Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
  • Martin Adamson (@flukesiscool) reported

    @TeamYouTube Nothing wrong with ISP. Everything else works fine too. Netflix, Iplayer etc. The issue is related to going from premium to standard.

  • Deirdre McDonald🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🇪🇺 (@deewallace32) reported

    @vjl2 I don't use bbc sounds. I use radio player. I have a Roku streaming player which takes me to bbc iplayer, netflix, Spotify etc without signing in. Sorry no help.

  • Dave Henniker (@DaveHenniker) reported

    @BBCiPlayer I already summarised the problems. I think it's a lack of bandwith allocated to iPlayer by Virgin, given that iPlayer works perfectly via my Amazon TV Stick using WiFi.

  • Karen Cannard (@KarenCannard) reported

    @SESIOxford @BBCLookEast @EmmausSuffolk I’ve just looked to see if I can find it on iPlayer but it’s not available. Perhaps the @bbclookeast team can help.

  • guti x (@XimenesGuti) reported

    @cbbc i beg you to put 100% of sarah jane onto the iplayer, i’ve been having to watch low-quality episodes on youtube 😭

  • Mark Jefferies (@mirrorjeffers) reported

    Director of content Charlotte Moore on problem of getting younger audience: “iPlayer is a big part of it. It’s also about BBC3, we need to make young people know we care about them & are making shows for them. I have increased the BBC3 budget and will go on giving more funding.”

  • Ivor Haskins (@HaskinsIvor) reported

    Documentary on this club, supposedly the worst team in UK, is well worth a watch. It's called The Fort and is available in bbc iPlayer. They're definitely on the up.

  • Adrian Clark (@adrianclark) reported

    @BBCiPlayerHi, another here with the Panasonic iPlayer problem. No need to reply; just adding my name to the list in case it gives you some idea of coverage.

  • Liam Stanley (@LiamStanley20) reported

    @0rthodoxStan Shit might have to watch it again stopped watching it because my iPlayer didn’t work on Xbox and forgot my login to it on my phone

  • Jacob Trueman (@TheJacobTrueman) reported

    So Drag Race UK has a bit of a diversity problem; mostly white and no Scottish or Welsh queens... bit of a misstep, but let's not cancel it before its even aired... oh wait, it's not airing... it's iPlayer only. Hmm... this better be good.

  • Cynthia Seymour (@BigGBsociety) reported

    @PanaService_UK Hi is anyone else having problems with connecting to iplayer & other catch-ups on Viera. Model TX-49D500B

  • Lisa Alderson (@HeresLisa) reported

    I’ve just found out there’s 18 episodes of @TheRepairShop on iPlayer. So if you need me in the next few days you’ll find me crying in a corner because someone’s broken childhood jigsaw has been fixed

  • Timmy Tour (@TimmyTour) reported

    Watching #motd on iplayer. First time I've seen it sober this season! My God the opening credits are awful. Worst I have ever seen imo

  • IF (@DN357PY) reported

    @thebelief An ‘audio pass’ on ifollow costs £2.50. Nothing available online, eg on iplayer, because of ‘rights issues’. I could watch the game for a tenner seeing as it’s a Tuesday night. Although as I typed my original tweet we went one down. So not missing much 🙄

  • amy✨ (@amybrianna) reported

    “Keeping faith” on bbc iPlayer is the worst show I’ve watched in a while
