It is not okay…

I subscribed to Britbox so I could watch Doctor Who and other favourite British television shows. Unfortunately I can’t get it to play directly through my Apple TV, apparently it’s not available in my country (Australia). I can’t log on via the television and on the off chance that I can access it, it won’t let me play anything, decoder not working, content unavailable, whatever. I can use it through ‘air play’ on my iPad but I don’t want to tie up the iPad whenever I have the television on. Contacting Britbox didn’t help, I got the generic answers, check the internet, restart, check the plugs, all that stuff. They didn’t work! Please fix it properly.

Issues with app on mobile devices

This streaming service works pretty well on my Apple TV and once it gets going on the iPhone or iPad, it’s fine. But it’s aggravating to get it going, especially on the iPad (which admittedly is six years old). Firstly I have it in landscape mode but as it opens it flips to portrait and won’t actually flip back till the episode starts playing. It gives the option to continue watching what you’ve been viewing, but when you tap it (at least with tv episodes) it does a mad scroll up and down the whole season, and you have to find and tap the episode again. Then it takes forever to load, and four out of five times I got HLS streaming error. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app, rebooting the iPad and just trying over and over. Once it does work, it’s great, but I’ve just spent 20 minutes trying to get it to start. I have Binge and Netflix too and both are much easier to operate across devices. Fix the app issues and my rating will go up to five stars. I got this for Doctor Who and I’ll keep it because I can watch classic Who episodes, but it’s aggravating when it doesn’t work much of the time. Also the streaming error appeared as I was binge watching after a few hours so it’s clearly a major issue.

Great starter build!

This build is a really great start so please keep working on it. Just doesn’t seem like it was ready to be released just yet.
-Buttons are not responsive immediately. There is a very big delay. This is probably the most important quality of life update needed.

-Chromecast doesn’t show up for me at all even though I can use it as it shows up in other streaming apps. (Didn’t even show up on the tutorial page, just a circle - for those that don’t know what CC is, the icon should be there for the tutorial.)

-When Airplay is activated and I turn on subtitles, it doesn’t cast on the screen, they turn on for 3 seconds on my phone screen and then completely disappear.

-If the app isn’t open while Airplay is on, it doesn’t start the next episode automatically.

-While in Airplay mode, I can’t touch my phone screen anywhere without the app thinking I am “pausing” the show. The pause area needs to be built around the pause button. The show annoyingly pauses when I tap on the screen near the bottom as I want to fiddle with the volume or the subtitles or even if I want to see the episode name.

-While it’s casting with Airplay I can’t keep browsing through the app.
