It has come to our attention that BBC iPlayer is down and not working today, although there’s been problems for at least 3 hours from what Product Reviews readers have shared with us by email. The technical issues have killed access for thousands to programmes and their UK favourite listings.
There’s a number of other BBC services included within the latest round of problems, but thanks to it being a weekend the biggest complaint is aimed towards the on demand TV streaming software. Those looking after the online services are aware of the issue and a fix is being worked on, so everything should be back up at some point today.
This is what one of our readers had to say, “BBC iPlayer isn’t working on TV or mobile today, everything is down for me in London”. Another added, “I cannot get streaming working and want to watch episodes of Money Box and Book at Bedtime”.
We’ve heard from a few users not able to get Radio iPlayer working as well, it seems nothing is working across the whole of the UK. We jumped on the iPad and loaded up the app, but couldn’t even get the categories to show.
Is BBC iPlayer down for you today? Have you had problems using the service this weekend?
