Re: Help with itv player appt

At the moment, there is no ITV player on the PlayBook - I'm not sure if they allow watching videos through the site directly as last time I checked you had to use Internet Explorer (!)

Still, an email in their general direction wouldn't hurt.

Sorry.

I just saw this on the ITV website:

"ITV is currently in the process of updating our mobile services to allow you to access the best of our video and written content no matter where you are. On this page you can find out what's currently available and keep checking back for some exciting announcements"

If you live in UK just go to www.itv.com/itvplayer , pick your program, press play, no app needed. Same goes for 4OD, BBC iplayer etc.

 

Tried it on default Playbook browser, and on simplebrowserplus.  Non UK ISPs may not have access due to copyright.

Jarviser's right. I finally had a change to go to the site on my PlayBook last night and it points you to a mobile site that will allow you to stream.

If you want an 'app' just bookmark the site on your homescreen.

Re: Help with itv player appt

I am also trying to get this to work on my Passport (to watch the TdF of course!) I am trying to download the ITV player app for android from Google, but it is stuck because my phone isnt associated with Google play, or something like that - and no clear way to resolve this. ( Is it me or is the whole Google thing needlessly, annoyingly, complex and precious.) Would be keen to find a way round this too..
