    That's better, 1 week wasn't always enough time to catch up.

    How about not using such low quality 720p compression for the so called 'HD' streams...iPlayer HD quality sucks donkey balls.

    I still don't understand why the BBCs real public service programming (stuff like their 80s Shakespeare adaptations, Attenborough docs etc.) isn't available on demand any time. I don't care if Strictly Dancing Bakers is available for 3 extra weeks, there's endless hours of wallpaper entertainment out there from commercial sources. Also, the quality of live streaming on iPlayer is awful, miles and miles off BT Sport (but comparable with the also awful ITV streaming).

    It's actually quite good on everything other than PC due a total lack of post processing leads to an el-sh1tto picture.

    +1 on this. Heck, if they want a "commercial" aspect then setup something like "BBC Library" that costs just enough to cover server/storage costs and charge a yearly fee.

    Have problems with iPlayer streaming of stored programmes never mind the live stuff, and since I've got a whacking great VirginMedia cable connection it's not MY broadband speed that's to blame. Missus is always complaining that if she picks "the wrong time" then she gets an broken EastEnders experience, and that's using the "standard broadband" setting, never mind the "fast broadband" speed one.

    Career status: still enjoying my new career in DevOps, but it's keeping me busy...
