    after today I only have four more days of work before I'm done for the year thanks to accrued leave, and I might get through everything I need to do by the end of today, in which case my plan for those remaining four days is to sit and watch RKO movies on iPlayer

  • Max Power (@DrMaxPowarr) reported

    @BBCNewsPR @bbcquestiontime Are those live viewer numbers, or do they include all the iPlayer re-watches by journalists? All I know is Fiona Bruce is terrible, and I stopped watching when she took over.

  • KK (@KAKipling) reported

    @itvhub I’m on virgin tv box and the itv hub streaming is stuttering and buffering. BBC iPlayer isn’t so it’s not the connection it’s your site. Help.

    Hi @BBCiPlayer @BBCiPlayerForum I need help! Someone is using my iPlayer account on another device. I think it's a TV at a self-catering flat I stayed at. How can I log out of my account on all devices and reset my password so only I can access my iPlayer account.

    @RetroActiveGM @TomGardinerUK @bbcdoctorwho iPlayer is counted in the BARB charts though I believe the latest reports indicated that it makes up for less than 500k viewers & then you have the uncertainty issue there of not knowing what views are infact repeat views from people who already watched. I think My5 is but I'm-
