BBC confirm iPlayer not working on October 2
The BBC has confirmed the iPlayer is not working today, on October 2, and at the same time isn’t giving any timeframe for when we can expect the streaming service to come back up. We’ve received a number of reports about BBC iPlayer not working.
If you contact BBC about iPlayer problems on Twitter, then you will likely receive the same reply most people have, which basically explains there’s technical issues and they are working to fix them. You can see a standard response in the tweet below.
@catmab afraid we’re having some technical issues. We’re working hard to fix. Sorry for any inconvenience

This tweet follows an official first response around 2 hours ago that detailed people couldn’t access BBC iPlayer, and they would inform everybody when everything is working again. At the time of writing, nothing has been mentioned on Twitter and as such we continue to see BBC iPlayer down hours later.
