Re: Iplayer not working

not working here in Brighton at the moment & my down speed has been cut in half - although I would still expect it to work at 35mbps.
I just tried iplayer through a vpn with the same result.  when you try to start a program you just get the infinite pink loading circle.

Re: Iplayer not working

The I player speedtest is giving normal results, I have tried several programs including live tv, and also radio content, none will stream content, Maybe they BBC have bungled to transition to this new upgraded  i player web site ?

Re: Iplayer not working

iplayer works for me, maybe it depends on the program you're trying to watch.
No need to be rude !
