Generally, I am a fan of the BBC I player. It is pretty good for content catch-up or live streaming and they just extended it to a catch up window of thirty days from seven.
However, for the last ten days it has been about as much use as an ashtray on a motorbike, with lots of failures reported all over the news (but not so prominently on BBC, funnily enough).
All morning I have been getting this patronising update from the BBC. It irks me because I have a 100 meg connection that is steaming along in the background, streaming a myriad of other (train and job search related) things without breaking a sweat.
Pull your finger out BBC, and enough with your cak messages!
