    • Upload programmes quicker

      Come on ITV get with the programme and upload content onto your catch up service quicker. You are severely trailing all the other catch up services in this department. BBC IPlayer, 4OD, Sky Go all have there shows on within an hour or so. With the ITV Player you are lucky if it's on there by the next day.

      Put the programmes on demand in a time frame that's understandable.

      It seems to be a lottery if the programme you are waiting for is on demand, jeremy kyle is the worst, is it on demand or isnt it,…

      • Find shows , by channel & by day

        Any chance of reinstating a daily schedule to access programmes from say, last night with just one click?

        On old itv player you could browse by day etc yesterday, monday

        i want to know what was on yesterday or a certain day to catch up...

        I would like to be able to see what has been on ITV channels recently through a timeline, perhaps plus/minus three days. I and (I assume) other users of the new ITV Hub would highly appreciate this feature being added

        • Favourites on ITV Hub

          Similar to BBC iPlayer, I think that there should be some way to save favourite shows so you can scroll down one page containing all your favourite shows to see if a new episode has been added or a new series has started. This shouldn't be to difficult to add since ITV already have the infrastructure in place for logging in

            • improved search

              the search is bad. if the program is recently on but not current then nothing comes up. It's frustrating. Take for example searching for unforgotten. type in Un or unforgotten ... no results, no information, nada.

              • Why is it so difficult who watch Vampire Diaries??

                When looking to catch up on The Vampire Diaries, online forums would suggest that the only way to do this is via laptop.

                Firstly, why is this not available to watch on other devices? This is a popular show that attracts a large viewing and has been on itv for quite some time.

                Secondly, nowhere on itv player across smart tv, ,mobile or iPad is it stated that this can only be viewed on computer. The app in fact allows you to see that there is a vampire diaries episode to catch up on, as well as providing a link…

                  Hi

                  Thanks for getting in touch. Unfortunately due to rights restrictions, The Vampire Diaries is only available to watch on desktop. We understand this is not very clear however and are currently working on ways to improve this.

                  Thanks

                • Add short synopsis of the program content

                  Basically, it's inconvenient having to click through every show to find out what it's about before choosing to watch it. Personally, I give up and go to BBC. It also leaves new shows out of the loop, as the quickest way is to go by what you already know.

                    • On iPad app could there be a categories section on main page

                      I tried searching for something and "Can't find what you're looking for" came up,I clicked on it and a categories section at the top came up,but it would be better if it was on the main page.sometimes you just look to see what there is to watch.

                          • Confusing site

                            It is much harder to find your favourite shows now, unless you know exactly what you're looking for. I much preferred the old, clear layout where it was easy to see what was on each channel in the last few days.
                            Seems to me this is purely a cosmetic change and doesn't add anything to the usability of the site, just makes it harder to navigate. Wasn't able to find the categories either. You shouldn't try and fix something that isn't broken.
                            If you really want to introduce something useful to the site, then the player itself could do with…

                                    BBC radio player has a 'now playing' button which means that when you leave the app halfway through a download, you don't then have to search again for the episode you were watching.

                                      Hi Marie, thanks for your suggestion. Just to let you know that this is a piece of work that we’ve started and hope to release in the near future. When you leave the app, we want it to be really easy to get straight back into your video when you come back.

                                      We’ll let you know when this work is finished and ready for release.

                                    • Don't see your idea?
