So annoying!!!!!!!!!!!!

This app is such a bad app every single time I go into it to finish my episode it starts it back from the start and makes me watch adds to skip back to where I Was. There are about 5 adds each time which isn’t that bad but the adds keep freezing and not starting again I then have to go off the app to try it again meaning I have to go back to where I was again! This app is such a time waister
RTÉ player is a much better app. When this app actually works properly it’s not bad but thank god there are no virgin anything in my house

I hate this

Thank you SO much for creating this AMAZING app. I’m a leaving cert student after doing a pile of study and have been studying all year and I had grinds and ALL I wanted was to catch up on my one hour of Love Island that I’d missed before I went to bed. 28 ads. 28! And when the ad’s did eventually stop and the programme was on barely 10 seconds and the ads started again. I uninstalled and reinstalled and the same thing kept happening.
Don’t download this app. It lets you down when you need and I’m so so thankful we don’t have Virgin anything in our house because this is an exact reflection of shoddy service they offer. I’m so annoyed rn

Too many adds

I normally only watch programmes on tv player apps. I have never had problems with other apps. There must be a fault with this one. It doesn’t realise it’s just played an add. Sometimes the same add would play three times. And if you paused and then played it would automatically go to an add as well if you go out of the app it wouldn’t play straight away it would just play an add. One episode I was watching kept playing an add at the exact same spot each time so I haven’t been able to watch the last ten minutes because the app only plays an add instead of playing the episode.

There must be major fault with the app and the adds system as that seems to be the default which shouldn’t be the case as you could have 17 up to 31 + adds per show. And some playing multiple times.

Issues need to be looked into ASAP.
