MESSAGE FROM ITV:
It’s now even easier to finish what you’re watching, stay on track through your favourite series and soaps and get to the shows you love faster.
ITV PLC part of our Entertainment and have average installs from 5000000 to 10000000. Last Update June 6, 2016. Google play rating is 60.9034. Current verison is 5.3.0. Actual size 42.0 MB.
Adverts play fine, but actual programmes don't! !! Ever since I have downloaded this app I haven't been able to watch a single programme!! The adverts play ok (surprise surprise) but the actual programmes dont. They start then seconds later , you can still hear the dialogue but the picture just buffers!! RUBBISH RUBBISH RUBBISH!!!!
Unfinished app Some improvements but still very inferior to bbc iplayer. Is this intentional or can ITV not afford quality coders? Player controls are very clunky, no chromecast support, no download ability, low resolution....
Rubbish It won't play the programmes I want to see just keeps buffering but it will play some. No downloads come on keep up and join the 21st century. Even All4 allows downloads. And don't get me started on the adverts loads of them and they last for ages. No Chromecast support. And a reply from you concerning all the bad reviews would be a start. All in all a load of crap.
This app needs proper Chromecast support, the ability to download shows and subtitles
Doesn't go full screen until you press the back button to exit the video then click play again. This also happens when clicking pause and resuming. So many bugs in this app. Guess this app will never compete with iPlayer or All 4
Poor app no world cup link keeps going round and round Very poor app cant work it out. Hope it get fixed soon. Crashes a lot
Why won't it let me watch the last episode of Safe House?! Tried watching the show on 3 devices and crashes at the same point each time. Thanks a bunch! Knew it was a big mistake downloading this dreadful app again, should have learnt my error last time!
Devastated Downloaded itv player on my iPhone it doesn't open, so I thought let's get my Samsung phone to watch corrie. Adverts load as soon as programme about to start it buffers. Then goes back to corrie page. What a disappointment
Won't work in on my HP tablet
ITV Player Dear ITV PLC, I wish I could have favourites on ITV Player. I'm planning to add GMB, This Morning, Tipping Point, The Paul O'Grady Show, Give A Pet A Home, Weekend Escapes with Warwick Davis, Weekend, You've Been Framed!, Ninja Warrior UK, BGT, Play To the Whistle, Celebrity Squares, Sunday Night at the Palladium, Britain's Got More Talent, Movies Now, The Chase, Wolves, Witches and Giants, Sooty & Pokemon. I also want to watch shows on ITV Encore and please put down a TV guide. Singed, Daniel Bubeer.
Totally rubbish After update it is still useless. Plays adverts perfect. Just won't play anything else.
Anyone home ? Can someone let the devs know that there is something called 'landscape' orientation ?
Why no cromecast support App seems to work fine on my honor 6, but why haven't you added Chromecast support yet, it would make so many people happy and get you a lot of extra users
Not bad Easy to use but it is SOOO SLOW
Itv palyer It's ok, thanks ?
Ok but... ...Still no Chromecast support
Can't get itv1 for my area ,disappointed
Lorraine It wont play the program
It's good n would of got 5 stars IF We didn't have to have the commercials. Also for some reason there is a few programmes that are not available which I don't understand why if it's a catch up tv app why can't I watch ALL shows that were on those channels
Pathetic Yet another "update" yet you still can't allow content to be downloaded for offline viewing or support landscape mode for tablets. You really are a joke, ITV.
Won't play Used to play oi on Google nexus 7 but it broke now I got samsung galaxy 4 and it hangs up after a few minutes..
crashes all goes well till the petite filou advert then it crashes
Crap, cant watch football Never works when there is a big game on.
Very slow Not good. Keeps buffering even on a fast network. Also cannot see the full screen due to white banners top and bottom.
Chromecast When will chromecast be available for itv player what a joke
ITV PLAYER Cool for live football.Nearly as good as BBC i Player.
OK Its so sloooowwww every time I watch something it pauses then takes time to get back to normal ( also I had a strong WiFi connection)
What a crap app!!!!!!!!!!! It goes a bit like this... open app >glitch>force stop app>open app> freezes/doesn't respond>uninstall
Doesn't work with Chromecast It doesn't stop me watching Broadchurch, but it certainly stops me watching it through Chromecast where I can't skip the ads so easily.
Works..... kinda Got a LG G pad 8.4 on android 4.4.2 but find tv shows hit and miss some load up without issues others won't. I suspect I am ment to get asked my postcode or something which is why it's hanging. However since the postcode checker never comes up it's pretty useless and the app at which point just acts like it's buffering.
Not bad But why isn't the app viewable in landscape? Also why doesn't the video automatically position itself upright. I have to turn my mobile 180* so its not upside down
Won't play Tried to watch something live (not sure if that made a difference) and it was only loading. I tried on my tablet and was doing the same thing ?
Pixelated crap! I forgot to record this weeks 'Your back in the room', so thought I'd catch up on ITV player - the Freeview cat/budgie advert is purrrfect, but the program image was all pixelated. So not going to watch that! Even though I don't beleive they are all hypnotised -it is just good entertainment.
Absolutely awful Wow where to start, probably the resolution I have never seen such pixelated rubbish how come 4od & BBC I-Player can get it right but ITV can't? Then again the standard of programming on those channels is miles superior to the inane drivel churned out by the ITV
Thunderbirds aren't Go Installed to catch up on new Thunderbirds show. Other reviews were not wrong. You'd think it would work on a Nexus 5, but hung constantly or returned error. Very very poor.
Rubbish Ads work great, then you think you're about to start your show and ....freeze , rubbish app and itv don't seem to want to fix it , but then the channel that churns out Towie obviously have no dignity
Seriously, Still No Chromecast? Joke!! Please add support for Chromecast. It's been around about a year now since Google launched this in the UK and still nothing from ITV. BBC manage to get films on iPlayer, BT Sport has big sports fixtures, ITV can't even manage their own content. It can't be that hard!!!
Doesn't work Waste of space
Absolutely unusable for me The video stream constantly freezes every few minutes (although the sound continues, and - funny enough - freeze never happened on ads), with subsequent periodic app crashes. At least it could remember where it stopped last time and let me continue (which is why I gave 2 stars, not 1).
Update worked for me Yes at last it looks like I can watch catch up using my data. ☺
Useless...end of Youd think they'd read the below list...a response/action would be good ITV. Good thing we dont treat our own customers like this in the work environment otherwise we wouldn't have a job!
Its alright Good at first but the update didn't work and now I can't watch anything
Content no longer plays Unfortunately the latest update has stopped any content from playing. All I see is the swirling circle logo and never get any further.
Why fix things when not broken working fine until you upgrade it rubbish
Ads Over the top adverts!!! I had to watch 10 adverts before luve tv came on!!!
No use Worked fine before. Since the update, im un able to watch using my mobile data and all I see is the swirling thing for 30 seconds then it shuts off saying "un able to play, please try again later" sort it out please!
Optomised for 4.1+. Bollocks We're sorry, something went wrong. Try again later. . .Don't think I'll bother. ....... .Galaxy S3 mini running Android 4.1.2
Still absolutely shocking! Video and audio are not even synched properly. Very poor for an official app and getting worse. A horrible experience!
Still no chromecast Down another star - still no Chromecast ( odd as making ITV content more accessible would only be a good thing for everyone )
ITV Great App Use It To Watch ThunderBirds are Go
Yes same as other poster ... doesn't actually show anything ...useless !!
Still No chromecast support Please add chromecast support. Media apps look better on the tv.
No idea what people are on about. Picture quality is bang on, plays fine on my Moto G. Needs Chromecast support though.
Yeah it won't let me use it now like to catch up shame
Utter rubbish! Just doesn't work, can't watch anything. Fix it please ITV!
Not working! Just left with a spinning circle when the program begins. Uninstalled, reinstalled and same thing! Please fix!
Lollipop problem! Ever since upgrading! Can't watch anything!!! ?. All I see is swirling circle
ITV update Works Magic since new update
No picture Not showing picture, sound only. Samsung galaxy tablet 10.1, any suggestions
Cuts off I'd be watching the adverts and then first half of program, it goes through the adverts again and then cuts off. When I go back on it, it's started from begging meaning I have to watch all the adverts again. Super annoying. Always happens. Could be my tablet but only got it at Christmas.
ITV Player I wish I can have favorites on this app. The shows that I'm planning to add so far are Big Box Little Box, Weekend, The Chase, The Cube, Surprise Surprise, Catchphrase, All Star Family Fortunes, Off Their Rockers, Sunday Night at the Palladium, Celebrity Squares, Ninja Warrior UK, The Magic Show Story, The Paul O'Grady Show, Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway, Catchphrase, The Cube, Britain's Got More Talent - Top Ten Moments,
Fix! Worked until I uploaded it, now it does not let me watch the program at all!
What A load of crap don't work
Pathetic Yet another "update", yet you still can't allow content to be downloaded for offline viewing or support landscape mode for tablets. You really are a joke, ITV.
No chromecast No high rating.
Cool If you miss the soaps
Load of ...
Just didn't work! Installed a couple of times but just didn't work. In the end it just froze my phone and the only way to unfreeze was to remove the battery. Can't imagine how they've got it so wrong! Samsung S5 duos.
Don't bother Plays adverts but main live program says ' does not support this platform'. This is on the app and the website and on Android and surface tablet. Load of rubbish and seems to be common with most people. Don't waste your time until this is fixed
This app is not a patch on the iplayer. Playback is poor and pixalated. ITV need to do more. Until then I'll delete this until it's fixed.
What happened??? Use to play TV shows, no problem. Now it just plays the adverts but not the programme. I thought it was a one off or that people didn't have the correct signal to play the programme. But no, both episodes of Corrie with full 4g and it isn't playing. Sort it out
AMAZINGLY DREADFUL!! I thought it was just me but most of us seem to be experiencing the same problem.... yet ITV STILL do nothing to fix it!! Do you not realise your reputation is going down the toilet.... or do you think you've made enough money that you no longer need to care!! Whoever you have in charge of this app I suggest you FIRE THEM!! A lot people like myself lead busy lives and rely on on demand to see our favourite shows.... I'm just grateful the BBC have got their act together and are reliable!!
Terribly buggy What's good. Library of stuff going back several weeks. What's bad. Everything else. Crashes all the time. Some of the most buggy software I've ever used. Update June 2015. Seems less buggy but No Chromecast support is not good enough
Rubbish This app is rubbish constantly crashing buffing all time n then adverts play fine also in the program it continues play with sound but no video I am fed up of this app it takes like 1 hr 30 mins to watch a 30 mins programme worst app I have ever had
Before update Before updating this app you were able to download programme's for on the go but you are no longer able to do this. WAY???
Shambles Worked fine for as long as I'd had it installed, now I constantly get error (1403). Can't even load up the advertisements! Poor show on itv's part.
Not great. Chromecast support is a must. Using the app locally on the device itself isn't a great experience and could be a lot better (could also be a log worse too though). Development seems slow having only just supported Lollipop. The biggest issue is lack of Chromecast support though. The future of TV is on demand, ITV. Why not support every platform possible? Ads can be supported on Chromecast too so I see no real reason not to.
It Won't Let Me Watch Videos I recently downloaded this app to watch some tv shows but as I tried to watch the jeremy kyle show it played two ads and after this there was no video, I heard the audio but nothing else, after this I tried refreshing the page but nothing happened. Wish I could watch it on itv player
Does not work replied to there email giving full details and still no reply in over 5 days. Plays advertising not the program terrible beata testing if any at all
App not working Every time I try to watch something I get a black screen and the video does not load I've tried reinstalling the app but the same issue keeps on happening please fix this ASAP!
Waste of time Watch the first advert then the image freezes and you only get audio. Been like this for weeks and no fix. Roll it back to previous version or fix it ITV. Been watching shows on Sky app no problems and less adverts!!
ITV Hub On upgrading from ITV Player, I get the adverts followed by only the sound from selected programmes on my Samsung Galaxy Note tablet - no video. It appears that I am not the only one to have this problem.
Poor picture quality - not HD. No Chromecast support still. Defeats obvious purpose of app. For fu©K sakes ITV needs to get out of the dark ages and get on with times. And that opening splash screen is absolutely pointless.
Don't bother. Dreadful app. No downloads, no chromecast, no HD and having to sit through over 3 minutes of adverts each time you select a random part of a programme. I will not be using it again until to deal with these issues.
Pathetic 2minutes of my life I will never get back . every time I try watch a programme it always shows you the adverts fine but once it gets to the programme......CRASH CRASH CRASH CRASH
Can't watch tv Whenever i try to watch benidorm. It buffers for a minute then it just goes back to the title page and says error try again. And it continues to do that. Which is the whole point of this app
Adverts On my note 3 the programme run fine till the ad breaks and then it has problems finding the signal for either the next ad or the next part of the program and most times stops and goes back to the play button or closes down completely so I cannot finish watching a program as it will not resume
Hopeless Tried and gave up when it was ITV Player; hoped things would have improved and the devs would have taken the criticisms on board for ITV Hub, but no. BBC I player works no problem on my device, but this app is as useful as a chocolate teapot. So unistalling again and giving 1 star as you can't give zero.
Does not work on Hudl2 To be fair its predecessor ITV player didn't work either! I find this baffling as BBC iPlayer works perfectly! Surely it's similar technology?? The splash screen works fine then it just fails to load anything!
Why is this free to air broadcast channel still not compatible with Google Chromecast? ITV have shared rites to the 2016 Six Nations Rugby which makes this particularly annoying. BBC iplayer is soooo good. Time to catchup on catchup ITV!
It doesn't work! Used to watch ITV via SkyGo on my Samsung GN 10.1, no problem and good quality. Suddenly ITV stopped streaming some films via SkyGo, so had to download app. It's rubbish! Had it for several weeks. Whenever I try and use it, I only see murkey quality adverts and after two ads it freezes. I close and re-open the app and just get a blank screen. In all this time I have never seen an actual programme! All my other TV/ video apps work perfectly with good quality. Either the suits at ITV don't care or else don't understand the multi-device world they exist in today and how they lose viewers through joke apps! Thanks for response. I now see the solution is to upgrade my Galaxy Note 10.1 to v. 4.3, except v. 4.3 doesn't exist for the GN 10.1
Still only sound! Hi been reading reviews and have uninstalled and install 5.1.1 on Galaxy Note but sound only, no picture. If I try and use on Samsung TV I can watch adverts but hangs on programme. Come on - can we all have a player/hub whatever to watch please?
Needs Chromecast Support Both iPlayer and All 4 support Chromecast now and I use them a lot. Would like to watch more shows on ITV Hub but not as convenient without Chromecast capability
What a crock of crap Tried watching benidorm tonight, worked great up to the first break then it wouldn't let me watch any more, kept repeating the adverts and then get an error message. Waste of time. We can send a man to walk in space today for 6 hours but I can't watch 45 minutes of telly without it crashing. well done ITV, world class entertainment eh.
Worse out of all ondemand Picture poor and absent on random programs. Sort fast as we can't watch on Android devices even via website as flash is required. (flash unsupported on Android). What a letdown. It appears developers don't take on board criticism and complaints as even with itv hub release the opportunity to fix major issues was ignored. UPDATE... I'm not thick, I know my way round tech and my software is compatible. You have more 1 star ratings than 5. What does this tell you? Tried watching Benidorm on my older android phone and newer tablet... Both give me the adverts perfectly but when show starts all I continue to get is first frame of show with perfect sound??? I wanna I watch it too! Please don't respond with instructions to fix as we all know the fault is your end. Wonder what your advertisers would say? Or even show sponsors? Maybe that's where complaints ought to be aimed?
Waste of time Sat for about 5 minutes waiting for my programme to load up, all that came up was the itv logo and the loading circle. Tried to go back, it asked if I wanted to leave the player, I said yes and it stayed on the video. Had to actually close the app down to exit. Get it sorted itv, or go back to the old more sensible version that actually worked!! Tried to give it half a star but it wouldn't let me :(
This app is poor. It keeps crashing and listing 320 as one of the problems. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the app to see if that makes a difference and it didn't. It took me an hour and a half to watch a 45min programme due to all the issues. This app needs a serious review. The BBC get critised alot but at least they offer a fantastic app and a superb customer experience. This app on the other hand is impossible. Itv also have the nerve to charge to skip through the ad's don't you think as a consumer we're charged enough....
Waste of time!! Funnily enough the ads work perfectly fine but the programmes wont play. Sound is there but no video!! Complete waste of time and money. Layout is spot on, but thats not much use if the programmes wont play. Oh and my TABLET HAS ALL THE UPDATES INSTALLED!!
Growing up Until you offer downloading for off line viewing like your rivals do you'll never get a five star review. I understand the service has to be paid by adverts but showing 11 during a single add break it counter productive and does nothing but frustrate the user experience.
Each segment degrades towards the end, pixelated and siezes. Then the adverts come on clear and crisp. Next segment starts well, then fails again to display at the end. Watching a whole episode of his way is just painful. Better to avoid ITV altogether if we can't catch up this way?
Constant crashing is frustrating Good idea and easy to use it still needs work. I am fed up of watching part of a programme on catch up and then at the end of the advert break it freezes giving an option to report. Have done so several and no fix ir reply. Then sit throuh adverts again in the hop it does not happen again.
STILL Useless! New version is STILL hopeless. Just sits there buffering, FOREVER! Then keeps repeating the confirmation dialog when you try to exit. Installed 3 different versions - ALL FAIL TO PLAY ANY VIDEO. FYI: iPlayer and other players work fine, so this is not an issue with the host device. ITV, please fix this - your 1 star ratings now exceed your 5 star ratings. Wake up and do something. You're being left behind. ...
Chromecast fail yet again! ? Got excited when I saw u had revamped it...but was immediately unimpressed when the first thing I looked for..CHROMECAST was nowhere to be seen! Shame on you itv, plz hurry up with an update to fix this you are supposed to be one of our best channels but you are being left behind in the dark ages! What's wrong has your money run out? Hence the multitude of longwinded adverts and total ignorance to all the pleas of virtually everyone who has left a comment on here asking u for chromecast support to be added!
Waste of time! Adverts worked perfectly! The programme I wanted to watch didn't. Utter waste of time. Stopped on either a black screen or advert still. Could hear voices but that was it. Don't waste your time until itv player can get their act together. My tablet is compatible when I checked with requirements and fully updated, shame itv player isn't the same. Don't bother with this app. It just doesn't work and until it does save yourself some frustration. Watch BBC iplayer that works perfectly.
Can't watch catch up. As with everyone else, I can watch all the interminable & unnecessary ads in perfect quality, but as soon as the programme comes on I get sound but nothing visual at all. I spent ages trying everything I could think of to make it work, which was incredibly frustrating and a complete waste of time. I also don't see why I should need to upgrade, as bbc iplayer works fine and the ads play perfectly. By the look of the other reviews, I reckon that itv need to rethink their app in a big way. It's completely dreadful!
Long winded Ok, this worked ok for me so far. My main gripe is the adverts. at least give us the option to fast forward/skip the adverts. 4min of adverts 11min of program and so on.
You only get to watch adverts it's scandalous. I've installed the updated version but still unable to watch one programme all the way through. BBC C4 C5 seem to manage it.
Absolutely love it because I'm always going on long drives so whenever I stop of and have something to eat I always catch up with stuff that I've missed
Brill I ve only had it for about a week but have no trouble with it ...i think its excellent ..i think most problems are to with phone you use think you need Farley up to date model...
Unbelievable Who wrote this pile of garbage? 3 different devices and works on none of them! You only get 1 star as i can't choose none!
ITV Player never worked and neither does ITV Hub. You get 2/3 into a programme and it just stops!!!! I have top of the range broadband in my house and I'm using a Nexus 7 so it should work perfectly well, just like channel 4 and BBC IPlayer, they're both great so why does ITV have such a problem with it? The picture quality is very poor too, with no option to watch HD.
No premium on android? Why can't I get itv premium on my new android device? I loved it on my iPad but now I'm paying for it and I'm stuck with advertising again! So disappointed.
On Galaxy 10.1 quad core The app is broken! (4. 1 .2) and also update to 4.4.2 vid on permanent load. BTW the 'STV Player' works fine on both f/w ver.
cant chormecast this like other aps. a bit pointless unless you like watching tv on your phone...
It takes so long to buffer It plays ads fine get to the programme *the bit I actually use it for* and it either crashes or every two seconds buffers! Same problem online today! Whats going on! And don't even think about telling me to update my Android as its as much as I can upgrade on my phone.
Hmmm This was my review for the previous version;How can you get something so spectacularly wrong when other TV channels can get it so right? Maybe it'd be a good idea to employ someone who knows what they're doing. At least the updated version seems to actually work now. Where's Chromecast though?
Good App Would be 5* but still unable to download and watch offline, please change this, it'll be much easier for those without Internet connection all the time, other than that it's a good App.
So far was good now mixed. My phone has Android 5.0.2 and it seems to work fine. So far! Watching 6 nations rugby live. However it has problems when watching tecorded stuff, tendacy to freeze during adverts. BBCi player far more stable.
video quality similar to 1990s dialup wow this is really bad. i am on 50mb broadband and here i am watching what appears to be an fmv sequence on an old atari 800 circa 1982! the last time i saw such a low video resolution streamed was back in the days of dialup internet. on a 40inch hd tv the pixels are the width of my thumb. cmon itv the bbc are way better than you and netflix totally blows you out of the water for video resolution
Astonishingly bad How a major TV company could think that this p*** poor excuse for software is acceptable in this day and age is beyond me. All the complaints that you see in other users comments are absolutely true and happened to me within 15 minutes of trying to watch a programme on catch up. Utter, utter rubbish.
Worst App Ever Lets you watch loads of adverts, then when it gets to your programme you only hear audio, no picture!!! Its been like it for weeks, ITV obviously dont care
All of sudden has stopped working, plays adverts then plays nothing. Nexus 7 . Has worked fine in the past. Tried re-installing but remains the same. Judging by feedback I am not alone. BBC iPlayer works fine. Tried re-installing yet again, got audio no video of "come on in" then continually buffers ! Rubbish !!
Not Working Note 4, stuck with a black screen and the loading circle when trying to watch Saturday Takeaway (haven't tried anything else yet) Have to force exit the app then as the prompt of "are you sure you wish to exit the video player" is unresponsive on selecting "yes". Program loaded fine on a laptop.
Doesn't work Sound only, no vision except for adds - can hear programme but screen stuck on adds, tried reloading, nothing makes any difference, email help address not available either!
This is a load of crap This is a waste of space does not work BUT the Scotish vertion works great,up date updated my firmware to jb but it refuses to play anything except the ITV logo.
Download shows to watch later? I wonder if there will be a possibility to download the shows I want to watch for later, in the train or so? The BBC app can do that as the Channel 4 app as well. So, when will I TV follow?
Only watch live and adverts work Waste of time. Unable to catch up on any missed programmes. Watch live and the adverts work, which I don't need. But trying to watch any catch up, it gets 1 second past the adverts and just hangs. Has nobody at ITV, got the sense to realise that it is catch up that is wanted.
This app doesn't work! It will load to the main screen. U choose your programme u wish to watch and it doesn't work! ITV needs to sort this out. Never have any problems with the BBC app or any others for that matter. Just ITV.
Absolute joke of an app Shocking app. Simply put for a mainstream TV service there is no reason in this day and age for an app to be this bad. As many have said compared to BBC & All 4, this app is an absolute joke. Downloaded when they first changed from itv player to itv hub. Thought it was just teething problems but obviously ITV think the thousands of 1 star reviews aren't worth looking at. Still no chromecast, continually crashes after adverts on catch and still won't rotate screen. Absolute WOFT.
What?!? Watching a live programme on my tablet, and pause to take a phone call. When I unpause it, I get to watch about a minute before the programme abruptly cuts to about 4 minutes of ads (not at a scheduled ad break) so I completely miss what I was watching! But to be fair, what I did manage to see was really low quality video, so I probably didn't miss much... Absolutely useless!
Okay But miles behind iPlayer and all4, no download functionality and no chrome cast support. Really, why bother with an app when adds no value to the website? But well done on making it prettier, you should be proud of your months of development! The developers state they are ignoring ChromeCast so they can concentrate on avenues in demand (?) but yet no Xbox one application either. I can't understand how developers are still in a job.
Awful It says there are no programmes called coronation street on search! When i can see a coronation street programme is available....just only the latest one which ive already seen! And despite swiching my keyboard NOT TO CLICK every time i press a key... Itv hub ignores this command. Adverts adverts adverts. Ive started watching the 8.30 episode... Only this is actually the 7 30 episode! Now the 8.30 episode is visible on pc but wont play back because it thinks im using ad blocker! Itv = incompetent tv
Like being on the 90's Wow love the old skool feeling from this app. Low quality streaming like back in the day. Chromecast support? No way! Fashionably lo-fi feel from top to bottom. Fuel your Web 1.0 nostalgia with incomprehensible menus and hard to find information. Great work from the itv guys once more putting the Internet in its place. On demand is for losers. Break out the VHS
Forced to Use Crappy UTV app Uses geolocation to force use of local ITV provider. Seriously guys, why not have one really good app instead of ITV, UTV and STV? Tell you what, I'll just use Netflix and Amazon Prime instead....
Lazy It's as if ITV don't want people to watch their shows. No Chromecast support, no games console app, no download and save later like iPlayer etc. Essentially a solid app that isn't feature complete. You get the feeling someone high up at the company went "we need an app" but then didn't look at any viewer/device metrics or feedback.
Only works spasmodically Trying to watch any program it locks up after the first break. Then black screen a bit of audio and the wheel of death. Surely this program should work just as well as the state owned BBC. Sort it out !! PS where is the Chromecast option ??
We need chromecast I haven't had a problem with the streaming of the app or geolocation but it NEEEDS the chromecast extension!!! Iplayer, All 4, sky, nowtv, netflixs etc etc all have it why doesnt itv???? It really lets the app down!
Rubbish I was trying to watch britains got talent as i had missed it and about 18 minutes in it started glitching and jumping and replaying bits. Before that the video had been pixelated and blurry. Im really unimpressed about the video quality. Sort it out to get 5 stars
Same old boring limitations What I TV needs to realise is that it's direct competition isn't just the iplayers and the 4ODs of the world. But also all the torrent sites and dodgy streaming sites that provides their content with minimum fuss, higher quality streams and Chromecast support. I wouldn't mind the adverts if the quality was there and I had the ability to cast the programs to whatever screen I want.
TRAGIC Woeful, the streaming is horrific, I use Netflix, Plex and BBC Iplayer and they all work perfectly, but this really is trash, was one point and someone's face close up was one massive pixel, and then it keeps stopping to buffer to only come back on with a terrible picture again, this was the same the last time I tried using an ITV app, thought it might have improved but it amazingly hasn't and they obviously aren't too bothered about it.....do not download this app! Absolute TAT
Good but... The app is good but never resumes properly. Also would be great if could download shows like you can on BBC iplayer
Horrible If I could give this app zero stars I would. Streaming quality is awful it is laggy and it constantly crashes and when it does and you try to resume you get a load of adverts that are better quality than what you are watching. Come on ITV you can do better than this you are miles behind all the other catch up apps with the this.
Behind the BBC app I give up, again no Chromecast support. Come on ITV, you are the only broadcaster who does not offer this facility.
Rubbish Come on ITV .This joke of an app does not compare to the standard of the BBC. I considered that it might just be my device but looking at the reviews it's not and your clearly not taking notes of all the bad comments or you would of solved the problem that the video doesn't work it only lets you watch live programmes. Take note of your comments and fix the app.
Not very good! Tried to watch catch up, no chance. Tried several times, reinstalled the app, still no joy. It played the adverts and then sound but no video. No Chromecast, oh dear. All the other main tv players work well why not this one?
Casting... I don't think so. Totally pointless in a mobile TV app
2016 -> No chrome cast If you had an app on the nvidia shield I wouldn't moan but come on. TV app that doesn't even have Chromecast? What is this? Channel 4???? Oh wait even their app has Chromecast support....
No chromecast support, poor streams Here's a thought. With all that cash you got from the fifty ads you make us sit through whilst squinting to watch the paltry handful of shows you have worth viewing, you could have at least eased our suffering by spending some of it on giving us Chromecast support so we can watch your shows on these things called Televisions! It's probably worth upgrading that old 386 you're using to stream us the shows whilst you're at it, too. Things get a bit choppy - except when the ads are on, of course. Funny that.
Could do better Agree with other people's comments on downloads for offline viewing and would also like Chromecast compatability
Can't even download the app. Despite following everything on the 'help' page. Rubbish. Bring back the original player it worked a treat.
The worst catch up app there is This app is so so so dissapointing!! First of all it isn't compatible with chrome cast!?!?! Which is a pain ! But that is something that can be worked around, however the fact that most programmes get half way through adverts and then cut off back to the home screen, means I rarely get to watch my programmes, or it takes about 2 hours to get through a 30 min programme ! Sort it out !
Itv player Don't get the bad reviews. Works on my phone and my tablet. Am not a shill. Just a guy. Let the adverts run and you're good to go. Simples :-}
Chromecast Support Required!! The beta program states it's invite only and there is no Chromecast Support. Without a way to playback on a big screen this app is useless to me.
Nothing but a black screen after it has shown the adverts, will be watching another catch up service that actually works!!
No Chromecast support! Very buggy hardly ever get anything to play but yet the adverts play perfectly
Wont show the programme only have the sound Since it has been changed I cant view any of the programmes, complete waste of time
Crash fest Constantly crashing! Never crashes when showing advertisements, only when the main program is playing. No rewind or fast forward button so have to watch programme over and over again to get where you were before crashes again! Ridiculous!
This is quite honestly the worst media player I have used. You would think with it being ITV it would be half decent. 1) I can watch a program half way through to the break. I watch all the adverts. Then it cuts out. To continue watching my program I have to restart it and watch all the adverts again. This happens 50% of the time. 2) They will advertise an episode of a program on their start up page. But once you select it the episode won't be there to select, only previous episodes. 3) It regularly buffers and then stops. I have a very good internet connection and I don't have this problem with any other media apps. I'm currently sitting here trying to watch an episode of something and I have seen the same set of adverts THREE TIMES now just so I can watch the second half. This is beyond ridiculous.
Why do I need to watch on app? Low quality stream if it loads at all I want to be able to catch up properly on a good app not this space using good for nothing pile of shite that switches off after 5 mins loading a show or saying Show is no longer available and it was just a couple of days ago it is available for 28 days at a time... fix this or let us watch online this app was good I not used it since 2014 but if its updates then reconsider what you're doing isn't working!
What's the point in having live video option as once you click to watch live it makes you watch billions of adverts by which time the show will be over. Also if you want to forward to a part after an advert you have to watch more adverts again even after watching the initial ads when loading the video. I just give up watching. How about renaming to ITV adverts
Never-ending buffering It comes up quickly. I can choose any programme but... All it does is buffer for ages. I've left it on for an hour to test it and I had to surrender to the fact it simply won't work. I love ITV, I can even put up with the ads but can't watch it and what on earth is a 1403? Try again repeatedly. Could you at least make it work?!
Boo 1 star for sound. No stars for playing the adverts perfectly. No stars for NO PICTURE at all for the whole programme. Lazy itv. I would just take this app down and start again. Save us all some time.
Chromecast??? Its okay but needs to move into the 21st century with chromecast support. Your competitors can do it where is the issue guys?.
Not as good as All4 At least now you can resume from last watch instead of restarting the whole show. But won't really benefit me until I can download to watch shows offline. Other than that, it's okay.
Pictures quality of dialup I have recently have been enjoying Netflix 4k and also i like how fast my Internet is. However itv hub is like going back to the late nineties and dialup. Much as I like the retro feel of a crap picture it would be good if it was a setting I could tune on or off.
Poor Plays poor , no sound since update keeps crashing . It's getting worse sort this app out please
No casting? Well it plays live tv on your phone (if anyone seriously wants that??), but you can't cast it top other devices like the Chromecast. Seems a pretty strange omission, I'm left wondering what I'm actually supposed to do with the app.
Crap!!!!!!!!!! Doesn't deserve any stars, waste of time, totally crap!!!!!! Just plays advert then freezes, can't watch any catch up!!! I'm surprised itv can't be bothered to sort out the problem as so many complaints!!!!! I'll carry on with iPlayer more reliable and can watch catch up programmes no problem!
waste waste,waste,waste,waste,waste,waste,waste,waste,waste,waste,waste,waste and 1000 mare wastes and yet I more waste PLEASE DON'T INSTALL THIS APP ! IT WILL KEEP FREEZING =-(
Needs updating Very slow on my tablet, is constantly buffering and too many adverts! Also I would appreciate being able to save my favourite programs so it's easier to find them again. Come on ITV try caring for your viewers! When are you going to update this app properly? Reading through the comments Its clear that no one bothers to reply ever so what is the point!!
Your App Is Bad And You Should Feel Bad No Chromecast, which is pathetic. And you don't sort shows by season, or even MENTION the season, which is kind of TV 101. But most ITV shows are rubbish anyway, so I guess at least I don't have to put up with this terrible app very often.
Casting? All services like this frankly should have built in Google Casting as standard. BBC iPlayer and BT Sport have casting. ITV Hub is pretty useless without it.
Bit annoying but does the job Crashes a lot, sometimes have to come out and resume a programme on each break and the quality is occasionally a bit dodgy but it does the job.
Video playback non existing I can happily watch all the adverts, but not a single show will play the video... just the audio!
Wish I'd read the reviews.... Yes, wish id read the reviews before installing this app. Wont play catch up programmes - says 'something went wrong'!
No casting - why? No casting available. What's the point? If two bob bongo sites can provide casting (so I've heard), why can't "International" Television?
Really behind compared to other players Bbc is 10 yrs infront, this app has video quality of dialup internet and you cant even chromecast
Why Can't I watch Things? When I press play It won't go on to the thing I want to watch, Not video, NO AUDIO, NOTHING ON THE FILM/MOVIE ?
Not bad, but still needs Chromecast It is what it is! Seems to work OK. But I rarely use it cause of the lack of Chromecast. Would be 5 stars if it had chromecast and offline viewing.
this app has malware. it killed my phone. ITV's pointless website doesn't allow live streaming. This app also doesn't allow live streaming. I am discriminated against by ITV because I have a modern android phone. I can watch BBC, YouTube etc etc no problem. ITV fails. I wouldn't bother downloading this app or visiting the website as they are pointless. ITV fails.
Cannot download - waste of time I downloaded app as I wanted to download a programme not on the Sky Go list of available programmes from the day before. This programme and others were available but you cannot download to your phone. Download the Sky Go app which also allows Channel 5, ITV and various Sky catch up to be downloaded or streamed so don't waste your time with this app which adds nothing else. App now deleted and will now record this on Sky box, put on DVD and transfer to my phone.
You cant download anything Its okay but it would be much better is you could download the shows you are watching like you can on the bbc iplayer. Also laggs loads, picture quality is rubbish and buffers too many times and too many adverts so overall its completely rubbish dont get it! Very disappointed
No casting?!? This is a major downside to the app, it needs Chromecast support to be the 5 star it deserves and why is ITV hub behind in this regard?
Bad. Does not work. There is this one advert that never stops buffering and you end up waiting forever until eventually give up. Don't install just a waste of time.
Euro 2016 Can any bloke tell me what is worth watching on ITV other than live football or rugby. You ladies seem to be well served with their constant dross.
Getting better A great way to watch ITV. Pity you can't download programs though, just stream. As someone who hasn't got much spare time to watch TV in one sitting, I need to to remember what I'm watching. The good news is that whilst the app may not remember what your watching, it does remember your place in the programme so you can pick up where you left off, presuming you remember what you were watching ??
Awful This app barely works on my phone, and dosnt at all on 2 of my tablets. Constantly buffering, takes ages to load, when it does it freezes every 5 mins, and way too many adverts. A real shame as I like a lot of itv programmes, and I like that u can watch live tv (on the few occasions it has worked) if they sort out the loading and buffering, I would rate this app a lot higher
No option to cast?! Almost every video app out there allows you to cast the video to other devices. Trying to watch ITV 1 for the Euros on my Chromecast - I had to use Kodi! But video does play well, just wish it was slightly higher quality.
Still No Chromecast! iPlayer and channel 4 have supported chromecast for a while now. Why can't ITV? Please update us when or if you are going to support this feature.
Very poor Streams are low bitrate. And it won't work with my Chromecast. Only works in portrait too. Clearly the developers don't know anything about Android development. Pretty pathetic really.
Needs Chrome cast support! Having to plug an HDMI cable into your phone to watch the final set of the French Open when the Virginmedia TV service fails is unacceptable. The BBC iplayer is miles ahead.
No Chromecast support Would have been a solid 3 star as you can stream the live broadcast but as there's no Chromecast support that's an automatic 2 star deduction
It's really good for catching up. Never missing my favourite soaps when I'm away. I seem to have no problems.
I loved it This app is so help full when I miss a episode I can just go and watch it
Doesn't work Can't find the show I'm looking for though it only aired yesterday
CHROMECAST Why not allow chromecast! I may well be doing something wrong, I'm sure it was used before. That's why only Three☆s
Awful Rubbish quality and stuttering video. Worst out there.
Average. Works with MHL device fine. Search and interface easier than iPlayer. Video quality noticeably worse than iPlayer. And worse, the sound sync is godawful. Not yet watched a programme it's been right on. The BBC manage it fine. Please fix!
No cast feature. Very bad image quality and no cast capability. Not useful at all, almost pointless for this app to exist.
You can cast it...? Whilst I agree the cast facility should be in the app, for all the morons moaning you can't cast using chromecast I don't know what planet you are on? Just cast your phone screen in the chromecast app then open the ITV app and it works fine on the TV. Regarding the ITV app, you can stream TV and that is what I want it for so I guess it is fine!
Fails to play anything Nexus 5 Marshmallow. Gives error 135. Thus is what iPlayer would be like if the government gets their way with BBC.
So rubbish. If you want to watch a programme you missed earlier that day then expect at least 2 days before you can "catch up". Then, when they finally upload the programmes; watch 30 seconds of a chewing gum advert because it crashes on a pack of wrigleys before the programme starts. This has happened for the last three days ive tried to watch anything.
ITV hubb Seriously worst app ever it will play adds but not the programmes, ITV sort it out or bring back UTV player. Waste of time installing the app. Zero stars. :(
Doesn't work. Plays adverts ok but doesn't actually play any programme content. Very poor for such a vibrant British institution. My advice is take it off here completely until the basics work. Benchmark basic functionality with bbc iPlayer and other competitors. Focusing on smart ways to push targeted adverts to people is an important part of your revenue stream, but I suspect its overweight complexity is currently stopping content functionality. Get back to basics.
Shocking quality Have ITV heard of HD? Their programs aren't even in SD, they are like low quality you tube videos, on anything bigger than a 4 inch screen they look shocking. Good selection of programmes but come on guys this is 2016 so give us some half decent quality. I've not even mentioned the constant buffering that makes it unwatchable sometimes. Take a look at BBC iPlayer for how a catch up service should work.
Needs work - installation on 'N' fails The latest update won't install on Android N developer preview 3. I understand I'm running an OS that isn't even released, but all other apps work OK. The ITV Hub developers need to make it N compliant quickly. And include the ability to cast from within the app too, otherwise it'll be uninstall time again. UPDATE;. 23-August - after updating to Android 7.0 (official release), the ITV Hub now installs and runs. Now where's that Chromecast support?....
Shocking If your going to make an app it needs to at least work. It opens and closes by itself. It freezes constantly. I have super speed virgin internet and no other app inc internet has this problem you watch two seconds of the program then it buffers! And crashes halfway through ad breaks! Thank god for all4 and BBC player!
Installed and uninstalled this app many times but it still won't give me a picture ,i only get the sound. Come on itv get your act together and take a leaf from bbc or all4 who seem to know what they are doing!!! Hub has just updated , still crap
Dark ages app! Not only is it slow to respond but now for some reason won't even play. If you dare try to forward the adverts it kicks you out of the programme you were watching and may start all over again. When are you going to master the world of catch up online?
Don't work properly It plays the advert with any problems. Then when the video supposed to start no picture just sound & sometimes it shows the last frame of advert thats playing. I've uninstalled then re-installed twice & it was exactly the same..talk to iplayer & all 4 devlopers they might be able to help you...
I agree with all the other poor reviews Don't even bother installing it unless you desperate to watch a particular programme. Search function to find programmes by category is not easily located. Needs alot of development. Tired of selecting an episode and being told the page is not available. App is a waste of time.
Erghh Picture quality is shocking, constantly buffering. Every single time i play a programme so far in the 'unfortunately itv hub has stopped working' sign will pop up and gotta guess how far i was in to it. Bbc iplayer is far better. Itv are so far behind them. My advice dont bother
Good when it works Too often the app stop working when shows go to add breaks. Wouldn't mind that if you could watch programs on the itv website but you can't via a mobile device. Please fix this as viewers don't always have the option of a pc or laptop instead of tablets/phones
Comprehensively useless. Freezes and randomly skips back to the start from any given ad break, so you have to endure all the ads again. Better to try and view the ITV site via a browser that use this app. Fails to play at all on Samsung galaxy tab 2. +++ updated 19/7/15 - after 2 years this is still rubbish. The ads appear to be crashing the app so you never see the content, I now have a negative option of anyone who advertises via this app. Fails to play on Nexus 5. ++ 7/7/16 - still completely useless, uninstalling, again.
Don't bother. Dreadful app. Still no downloads, no chromecast, no HD and having to sit through over 3 minutes of adverts each time you select a random part of a programme. I will not be using it again until to deal with these issues.
It's pretty good Samsung Galaxy S6 latest version of Android. Dunno what everyone else is complaining about. After some initial buffering and poor resolution I watched a whole episode of Family Guy without any problems and there weren't that many ads.
Still just doesn't work Installed just now to the watch the football upstairs... nothing but a black screen after pressing play. No sound, no picture, nothing, not even an error message. Useless, for a TV app.
Awful awful awful bloody awful Utterly rubbish...spoilt by incessant ads which come on all over again when the app frequently stalls halfway through a show and has to be restarted. For such a big commercial corporation, you think they'd get their act together a bit better than this!
not good. i installed this app hoping to catch up on programmes that I have missed but it is so slow, there are so many adverts and the worst part is when the programme finally begins it is really bad quality. I suggest you install 'all 4' x
Doesnt work most of the time. The app is just broken, my connection is fine, its 40mb fibre broadband, and other apps like YouTube work perfectly. ITVplayer used to work great before it was replaced by ITVHub. Bring back ITV player.
Doesn't Work This app fails to play anything on my S5. I just get a spinning buffering icon. I now cant catchup on any ITV shows on my phone as UTV Player which was used in Northern Ireland has now switched to using this useless ITV Hub
It won't install!!! Says Error 505!!! This worked on my honor 7 before the marshmallow update. Please help? Need to catch up on a weeks worth of emmerdale n corrie!!! And I'll rate 5 stars again! HELLO ANY CHANCE OF GETTING SOME SOPPORT???
Very broken now It use to work OK, just! Now all I get is buffering, except (surprise) the adverts which play perfectly! The programs never play just a black screen. I've even sat my tablet next to my router and still it's just buffers. Good job I only use this a few times when Tour de France is on because it's worse than useless. Then again I could say what what I like because it's obvious the developers don't read any of the feedback/comments otherwise this would be as good as bbc iplayer.
People need to invest in proper internet. Don't expect it to buffer fast if you've paid £10/month for your internet. Get real. It's your frugality that is causing the problems cited in previous reviews.
A turd of a professional. I hope you like buffering! Because here at itv they have buffering by the shed load. And I hope you like cables too! See that nice shiny Chromecast... Well here at itv they never left the nineties, so no playing to another device. At all. Or downloading. Or having picture quality above an old CRT. Or... Well anything but crossing your fingers and hoping the app can crawl along far enough that you might actually be able to watch your show. In five second snippets between buffering. Maybe. Total turd.
Just doesn't work on android Can't watch anything on my android phone. Pointless. BBC iplayer works like a dream but this is rubbish! Would give it 0 stars if I could.
Doesn't work Every time I start to watch a programme I get to the first commercial and the app freezes and sometimes the programme doesn't even start. I have tried to uninstall and reinstall but this doesn't solve the problem. App is useless to me.
Hub & S,G,S5 I got hub on my S5 but most of the time it keeps crashing so I'll try on my Sony Xperia Z1 and see what it's like on this phone. Will keep you informed of progress.
Sony Xperia Be even better without the damn f***ing adverts. There are no adverts on Virgin media so why on Fire stick. I learnt though a long time ago that itv don't give a f*ck.
Pointless First program I try and watch and it tells me it's not available on my platform!?? What platform should I be watching it on? A TV perhaps? Deleted immediately. I hate itv even more than I already did
Well, what a load of rubbish! When I used it on old xp netbook it worked but now I've downloaded the app on my tablet and tried it I just get buffering all the time but my internet speed is far better now than when I used it before. Total time waste exercise that was. On another review it said doesn't allow Chrome cast so even if I got it to work I wouldn't have been able to cast it.
Make it like BBC iPlayer! I realise and accept that ITV has to show adverts get money unlike the BBC, but that doesn't mean that their app layout should be confusing, the functionality rubbish and it impossible to use without throwing your phone at a wall! It can't be that hard to just make a near enough copycat BBC iPlayer because that is the only decent/good catchup app!
Worse out of all ondemand Picture poor and absent on random programs. Sort fast as we can't watch on Android devices even via website as flash is required. (flash unsupported on Android). What a letdown. It appears developers don't take on board criticism and complaints as even with itv hub release the opportunity to fix major issues was ignored. UPDATE... I'm not thick, I know my way round tech and my software is compatible. You have more 1 star ratings than 5. What does this tell you? Tried watching Benidorm on my older andr
Missing Chromecast & needs updating This really needs to be updated. The most obvious missing features are stream to Chromecast and DNLA, and downloads for offline watching. BBC continue to see the standard so please can you follow their lead ITV, or deliver better?
Waste of time It takes 2x as long to watch a programme cos it keeps buffering and cutting out! Also should have the option to cast to TV! Rubbish App! NEEDS SORTING OUT ASAP!!! ?
Useless Not compatible with chromecast. First app I've ever seen that had more single stars than 5 stars. ITV get your act together. The future is coming whether you like it ot not.
