I love on demand television. Nuts to HD (which I also adore), this is the best thing about modern TV. It even outweighs recording for me, it’s just something I just couldn’t imagine doing without anymore.
So, having finally found time to sit down and watch last weekend’s Wallander (which was fantastic by the way) only for the new iPlayer app thing on Virgins Tivo box.
This is one of the numerous gripes that I have with Virgin’s new premium telebox, but the iPlayer on it is terrible. Slow, prone to breaking up, overly buffering and having an awful rewind function, it’s a massive step back on what was offered before.
While the service is still fantastic, the wrapper’s horrendous.
Has anyone else had this issue, or is it just Virgin Media being abusive to me again?
