I wanted to listen/watch programmes instead of or as well as reading my books, so had it downloaded on to my Kindle Fire. I am delighted with the result and would recommend this to everyone.

1.0 out of 5 stars New download 12 Aug. 2013
By Chil8
Verified Purchase
I have just opened the BBC iPlayer as I have done oodles of times before with no bother. Tonight it asked me if I wanted to upgrade to the latest so I followed the prompts and ended up going around in circles and no have no access to the iPlayer as I keep being promoted to download despite following the easy click instructions.

I have even rebooted my kindle fire HD and still no iPlayer. Hope they fix this glitch fast or I'll miss the next instalment of Top of the Lakes :(
