I have been unable to get any response out of the BBC iPlayer for the last hour or more. Just selecting a program gives you the continuously turning circle that indicates a stall. Is it working for anybody else?
Fixed! Go to the fix.
Re: BBC iPlayer down?
When the problem began I thought it applied to multiple devices but now it seems to be confined to Windows 7 on my main PC. It applies to both Google Chrome and Internet Explorer but not to Windows 10 running on the same PC (as a dual-boot option). The main difference between 7 & 10 is that 7 uses Kaspersky Internet Security and 10 does not. So, although it could be something else, the finger of suspicion is pointed at Kaspersky.
Uninstalling and then re-installing Kaspersky Internet Security fixed the problem. Thanks to all who commented and made me aware it was my problem and not a BBC one.
