This doesn't work as well as the old version. There are far more adverts and at the end of the adverts there is a long pause before the programme restarts. I used to watch a lot of content on the STV player but I won't be doing this now, instead I will go back to my DVD recorder. It is annoying because there are a mass of adverts on TV saying how wonderful the STV player is but it certainly doesn't live up to the hype.

Clunky and frustrating. Really annoying that you have to sit through the adverts, especially if you only watch half of a programme and want to come back later to watch the other half. It does not seem to keep your place for you, but starts from the beginning each time, making it incredibly difficult to find where you left off. The whole site froze up only minutes from the end of one of the programmes I was watching and I simply could not return to the place where it froze - there were just interminable adverts.

compared to the bbc Iplayer this is rubbish. You can't download, it keeps cutting out. It's difficult to maximise the screen. It's not worth downloading.

I am really disappointed in how often it stops and starts. The lack of sound and vision continuity. The fact that you have to sit through every advert and how often the same ones are repeated is also very annoying. Every time I paused it went back to the beginning. It was very frustrating!

Rubbish. Inconsistent and unsophisticated. Played a programme and it took 40 minutes to try resolve an issue. If they are going to use adverts in the middle of a programme the least they could do is ensure that they are joined together properly. (We've still been unable to view the last 15 minutes of the programme)

Must start by saying the only reason I gave 1 star is that I couldn't submit with no stars which is what it deserves! This is a disgraceful app especially for a so called tv company. Tried to download app to watch football and it just hangs. I just got a blank black screen. Had to reboot kindle just to get out of app as it froze. Tried deleting and downloading it again but just the same.
