If you have BBC iplayer app downloaded on your Kindle Fire HD, you ultimately need this app to be able to watch any programs.

It is quite difficult to download, I had several attempts to do so but when I eventually got it downloaded it was fine. I only use it for watching BBC iplayer so can't judge it on anything else.

As you need this to work with the BBC iPlayer I could pretty much copy across my review from that App. One of the Apps you download first to enable access to free and high quality video content.
