    I have changed the original posting from when I started this thread. It was my first thread and I wish I had been more inclusive to involve all iPad users. So please...all are welcome.

    BBC iplayer is great, don't you think? I've not had any issues with it yet although I have wifi only iPad. Anyone buy those PC World iPads with 5% off yesterday?

    I keep hearing how wonderful BBC iplayer is for iPad, but I've NEVER been able to get it to stream. The app opens up fine, everything looks good but, when I press play, that irritating little while circle goes on and on until I get the message telling me to try again later.

    Thumbs up for iPlayer.

    Sky news app is really cool as is BBC news.

    Just looking for an app that will give me access to other UK channels now!

    Not sure what the problem might be but......I think you need to be on wifi, if you are you need to be on a suitably fast connection. There are other threads on here where people had to either change router settings or change routers to get a fast enough connection.....don't assume because other devices are running ok on the same router that all will be well, it's well documented on here, if you can't find it let me know and I'll see what I can find as I am subscribed to those threads.

    Archangel, have a look at http://ipad.tvcatchup.com/

    It's a great service, I think. No app, but just bookmark the site to your desktop. I've never had any difficulties with the service, whether on the iPhone or the iPad. There's a free sign up.

    Good morning Gabriel1 isn't it a beautiful morning again. UK is great. Yes, sky news is wonderful, it's opened every day 4 to 5 times at least as well as BBC news. We could do with itv player now. Why are they so slow, is it just money orientated?

    You took my next words right out of my mouth mac. Yes, I also use iPad.TVCatchup. I do however have some issues with this though but it could be my router or the kids using wifi at the same time.

    +1, another app we could use is the chanel 4's 4OD app, which at the moment cannot be used in apple mobile devices due to flash

    Sent from my iPad using iPF, using iOS 4.3.2

    What a shame, channel 4 should buck their ideas up and change to HTML (is that the right name) as well. I love meeting all you fellow UK iPad lovers.
