Experiencing other On Demand playback issues? 

Freeview works with broadcasters and manufacturers to log and investigate issues affecting the Freeview ON DEMAND (FreeviewPlus) application.  As some issues occur intermittently, are specific to selected products or affect distinct videos or ads, it can take time to zone in on the cause and address the problem.

If you cannot stream an ON DEMAND video at all or all the way through, please note down the programme title, series (or season) and episode and report it here.  The details you provide may help in isolating the cause of the problem. Thanks!

Still having reception or channel issues?

If there no outages reported by transmission providers or broadcasters above relating to your area, chances are you may have a fault with your antenna, cabling or device set up.
