BBC iPlayer problems
The BBC iPlayer is a well known video streaming platform that can be found online, as with an iPhone and iPad app, on Android devices, Smart TVs, and many other devices. When the BBC iPlayer runs into problems it can be directly at their website, or the service could be not working on one of the platforms they stream through.
One of the most common messages you will find at the official website for when the BBC iPlayer goes down states, “BBC iPlayer is temporarily unavailable”. Normally, you will be asked to try again at a later time until the technical problem is fixed.
We also hear about problems with the video streaming through BBC iPlayer and a loss of quality, which could be due to network speed and ISP routing issues. If you need help use the support information on this page, or leave status reports about your BBC iPlayer problems below.
