Appalling service in RTE APP
App is almost useless was down most of yesterday and now just keeps stops loading in playback. What the point of having this app when it just frustrates people trying to watch playback. I see u have an international app If it’s as bad as this one it’s a waste of time and money. We go on about being a country of technology the future internet etc but when we can’t even manage an app that is reliable it’s a very bad sign. Even Virgin Media now have a better app and can can please get rid of that blue screen with the horrible noise which goes on for about 5 minutes. RTE never used to have this annoying break. Virgin Media started that with a red screen and RTE copied. If u want people yo watch online TV as the future u need to start with a reliable app TG4 had the best app but so disappointed to c that it is changed and is now no good. Is the same people responsible for creating both apps.
RTÉ player is useless now need another update again
Carlsberg don’t do streaming apps but if they did.........
Missed an episode of Love/Hate so said I’d turn to the RTE player app and broadcast on the TV.........no, nope, no.....nope......ball burst, game over. You’d swear i was asking it for the price of turnips with long pauses and silences. Think RTE are trying to make us stay in a time when you had leaded petrol cars and when the nuns ran the “laundry” service over the road.
RTE bosses in the meeting rooms plotting, “Oh you missed it first time around, well I suppose you’ll just have to wait until show it again when the Wednesday morning at 01:30” only for them to reschedule last minute again to play a episode of the national knitting championships from 1993 so just have to miss the episode completely. Only hope now is to stream it off some dodgy website while a Nigerian Prince is trying to contact me for the millions of dollars he wants to share with me. If myself and the Nigerian prince ever do come to agreement on all that money, I’ll be straight up to Montrose with the bag of cash trying to help out the poor auld craters in the tech department of RTE.....think my blood pressure is recovering back to normal pre downloading the app...just never going to chance hawing this again.....will just to go to mass in person from now on, while I’m there, just going to light a candle for this dead dog of an app...rant over
