Hi Same problem here - of sorts!
iPlayer works fine in web browsers - IE11 on laptop and Safari on iPad albeit somewhat sluggish.
Using the iPlayer app on the iPad it is hellish slow, when you do get there, you are prompted that there is a new home / player for radio.  When the TV iPlayer eventually gets its content, you are (or at least I am) forced to upgrade to a new version.  For me that will have to wait until after mid night.
HTH,
Kevin

Through the app on android it's pretty slow to load for me as well, the other half reports no problems on her Ipad2 with latest updates...
