Did ITV not realise when the bid on the Rugby world cup that people would not be watching on their devices? I think that is clear with the very poor service of streaming from a major broadcaster

The whole Country should boycott this rubbish, who wants to watch adverts all day?
Absolute rubbish, we already pay for this privilege through out TV licence, join the force and ditch this crap and the donuts who run it will get the message

I have some old VHS cassettes in my garage, do you want them to record on, ITV? You’ll defo be able to put out better quality footage with them than you can with what you amateurs currently use! Seriously, how can it be this bad?!?! Reminds me of watching Star Wars, recorded on video, at Christmas time in the 80’s! Shockingly poor effort, ITV!! Sort your lives out, you do this for a living!!

Absolutely appalling, the worst of all the standard five channel apps. We have this app on two different platforms within our household. Neither sync, so if you are half way through watching a programme, it does not remember. One platform (Now TV) is absolutely awful. It asks you if you wish to resume a programme, then proceeds to play at least 8-10 ads before you have to restart the whole programme out of pure frustration. Without doubt the worst aspect of this app is that you have to rewatch ads you have already watched, if you rewind a programme! Channel four don't do this! Awful, awful awful!

Dire. Stuttering and buffering on a 50Mb connection. Ruining the world cup coverage and they have a UK monopoly.

Dreadful product. Audible groan any time I see a stream is on ITV. Buffers more than an illegal stream and has more ads to boot. Take some notes from the BBC who have ad free streaming and no buffering issues.

Utterly dreadful low-def non-HD steaming

So, two years after first complaining about ruining what should be sports fans' rights to watch decent coverage of exclusive events, ITV still continue to ruin. With exclusive rights to the Rugby World Cup, once again we are watching a quality of TV even dial-up service would have been ashamed of. It's a national disgrace and OFCOM should step in Do ITV even care? Clearly not; either they don't bother to look at sites like Trustpilot or if they do, they don't care. My only solution, although probably not allowed, is to connect to another country with a VPN and watch coverage on another nation's broadcaster...in decent quality. The UK must be the worst-served nation for coverage of sporting events when they're kidnapped by ShITV.

Absolutely shocking streaming, buffers every 2 mins.
Impossible to watch the world cup.
Review by Neidin Kkdkx2 months ago
ITV’s name is officially mud.
Almost a thousand reviews and 90% at one star...
Not a sustainable model.
Investing too much into access rights and not enough into infrastructure.
Making so many viewers World Cup a misery.

If I could give less than 1 ☆ I would have. this is just frustratingly s#!t, if it's not buffering it plays the s#!t adverts 2 or 3 times then wont work at all. If you want to watch anything on here download stremio and miss all the adverts as well as the s#!t service.

Gutted that the whole Rugby World Cup will be on itv as their web player continues to be awful after years and years of potential development time seemingly wasted. It still can't handle live sports events being watched simultaneously by a large number of users. In the same amount of time, iPlayer has become brilliant, literally 0 issues 99% of the time, 4OD has come on in leaps and bounds, and yet here we are in 2019 and the itv player will still buffer even with a decent web connection. Not only that but you still can't reliable resume a programme where you left off, meaning you have to sit through so many adverts. It's the same when you lose a live connection: reload, sit through ads, be hit with buffering. What a joke itv, I literally never watch your programmes but at least sort it out for the sporting events I want to see that you've got a monopoly on. Please, it's a dreadful experience using the itv hub on any device.

A complete and utter descrace of a tv app!! I've never known a tv app to freeze and crash so many times during a tv programme!! If I could give this no stars, I WOULD!!!!
Review by Bafford2 months ago
Absolutely terrible, either it never works or when a programs does work it is constantly stopping and starting. I would choose any of the other channels over this!! It is actually a complete waste of time!!! Then when you contact them to inform them of the issues they don’t even have the decency to reply.

I've noticed it doesn't buffer when they are showing the adverts. Funny that.

Amateur at best.. it really is.. as bad as iPlayer too..
i am an IT Tech and for a 'Large' company this service is utter sh!t
why do they do this ?... just why ?
Review by Mzero2 months ago
Complete rubbish. Whoever wrote the app should be fired... Programmes freeze after each and every advert break.
Back to Iplayer for me. I'll record any programme I want to watch so I can skip the adverts.
Review by Daimers Lihv2 months ago
Extremely poor and frustrating. As soon as you get to the adverts, it goes into a series of stop / start loops and hangs. Seems that the answer is to do nothing and eventually it will go back to the program. Probably a deliberate ploy to get you to pay for the ad free service. There’s really no excuse when others can do it so well. Total crap!

Keeps freezing every time adverts come on. Needs sorted.

Absolutely diabolical TV app on Amazon, crashes more times than it actually works. Manages to crash the firestick so have to restart. All other apps work absolutely fine. Come on ITV read the reviews and do something, you're so behind.
