ITV Player - Plays The Programmes You Miss

AdvantagesITV Any Time, Convenient

DisadvantagesBuffering Takes Time

"ITV Player follows in the footsteps of the BBC I-Player – an online service offering the opportunity to watch the shows you have missed for up to 28 days after they are first aired. For those without a DVD recorder of a VCR this service offers an excellent opportunity to catch up. This service was a new experience for me and having read several reviews as to the poor quality of the programmes screened I wasn’t expecting an awful lot. However I ..." Read review

Is this the future of television?

AdvantagesWatch TV when you want to

There are other options to find the programme you are looking for: Selecting the date, a list of all programmes, the Top Ten and a section with just Soaps. Once I had selected the programme a still frame appeared on the small 'screen' on the ..." Read review

ITV needs to play catch up...

AdvantagesYou might be able to watch your favourite TV shows.

DisadvantagesThe technology isn't up to scratch.

"...keen to try out the ITV player for a while, so a few weeks ago, in need of a Coronation Street fix, I decided to give it a go. The application was easy to find by going to: www.itv.co.uk.ITVPlayer . I found that it was easy to browse through the television programmes on offer, all the prime time shows were listed and everything was available for a 28 day period. So I selected a particular episode of Coronation Street, sat back and relaxed. ..." Read review
