BBC Global iPlayer App having problems with iOS 5.1


- Advertisement -

If you have updated your iPhone or iPad to iOS 5.1 and you use the BBC Global iPlayer app you might have some problems!


This is what the BBC tweeted:

For now, we’d advise holding back from downloading iOS5.1 if you want to stream shows on the app. Thanks!

So, if you are user of the app and you can’t live without it for now, you might want to hold off from updating to iOS 5.1.

  1. Has anyone had a problem where you can’t watch any of your videos or Netflix on a big-screen via the cables? I suddenly can’t get any video to work but do get audio. Tried this with my ipod on multiple tv’s with the same results. Any feedback would be helpful or just to know I’m not the only one! Thanks! Thinking it’s the new 5.1.
