@mark74 

Is this a problem with your TV or do you have another device like a Youview box that's having the issue?

What about other players such ITV, All 4 & 5?

Same questions re your mother-in-law

Are you on Fibre broadband or "normal" broadband?

What broadband speeds do you and your mother get?

It may be that BBC iPlayer is defaulting to HD content and your connection is not good enough for that. Have you tried to play it in Standard definition. To do that go into Settings > Settings & Help> Video Quality > Standard Definition.

Do you have BT Parental controls turned on?

If so, then you need to add the following websites to the "whitelist" of sites which are always allowed.

bbci.co.uk

bbc.co.uk
