  • Gareth Rhondda (@GazQwerty) reported

    Man I've been given a link to watch it and am doing so, but I still can't find out how I'd get this without a link? I type in 'formula e' to bbc iplayer or bbc sport and it doesn't show at all in either? What an awful website!

  • Carl Lavery (@realcarlitosway) reported

    @RedbeardRohan @FIAFormulaE The BBC are awful when it comes to live sport, I've found it on the main BBC sport page but there is no mention of it on iplayer

  • Justin I'Onn (@justinionn) reported

    @_SteveAB @madebygoogle @BBCiPlayer I've got exactly the same issue. It's the BBC iPlayer Android TV app on the Chromecast with Google TV. Over the past couple of days it freezes, and then force closes.

  • 私に性交を放っておいて 🇯🇵🧘‍♀️🌱 (@patto1878) reported

    I think BBC iplayer is pound for pound THE worst streaming service out there

  • 𝖈𝖍𝖑𝖔 (@_WithAplomb) reported

    Where else can I watch Uk Dragrace s2 that ISNT bbc iPlayer ???? Pls help

  • elizabeth bracken (@lilygatsby) reported

    @Allelite999 @DefundBBC You only need a licence for live tv, that is programmes that are actually being broadcast as you are watching, and BBC iPlayer. You do NOT need a licence for catch up on itv hub, all 4, my5, You tube, Netflix, amazon, Drama, pluto etc. Cancelled mine and no problems.

  • Benjamin Chapman (@benchapman123) reported

    Right can BBC iPlayer PLEASE add the newest episode, I’m sat here waiting for my fix #DragRaceUK

  • Steve (@_SteveAB) reported

    @BBCiPlayer Hi iPlayer. It's not casting to Chromecast. It's an app on Google TV that is not working.
