BBC iPlayer interface changed?

Go to solution

Recently I am no longer able to use the Play button to display how much time remains on a programme I am watching nor does the Information button work to display a programme summary.  Is this an intended change to iPlayer or is it just no longer working properly on my T2100?  I rebooted the box to no effect.

Hi @gomezz 

my impression is that this is due to the BBC recent changes

https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/help/questions/recent-changes-to-iplayer/new-tv-playback-controls

In the BBC own words  the playback controls have been simplified.

I have sent feedback to the BBC that the loss of the Information function is a big deal (for me anyway).

I full expect a reply misunderstanding the point and explaining how to do something else which I have not asked about as is always the case with their help desk minions who haven't a scooby.

Only discovered yesterday by chance that the Play Bar *is* still available by pressing the Down or Up arrow.

I've also noticed that the information is now available by pressing the down arrow twice as well
