      • Last watched / Viewed show

        I am not a young person, unfortunately, and I need to remember the last episode I have watched, and/or the series I am following and where I am with those programmes PLEASE.

        I would like to save my favourite shows - so I can find them quicker across all my devices

        • Categories

          It would be nice if you could browse shows via categories, for example, drama, comedy, soap, reality, kids.

          • Ability to resume episode where you were last watching

            The old itvplayer allowed the option to resume an episode you were previously watching or play from the start. This didn't come up today on an episode of a show I started yesterday, and was annoying.

            • Stream quality

              Increase it. It's utterly terrible.
              There's no reason why it should be so poor nowadays. Watching itv player is like stepping back in time 15 years, quality wise. I really don't get how it can be so bad, it's astonishingly inadequate.

                We have now begun rolling out stream quality improvements to most of our platforms, so you should be able to enjoy an improved experience. Thanks for your patience. More video quality improvements are coming!

              • Easier navigation

                The old site seemed much easier to navigate - you could find shows alphabetically, by category or by day and you could see popular and favourited items. this site seems much more disorganised and fragmented.
                --
                It would be ideal if when we hover our pointer over the photo of the programme a brief outline of the show would pop up.
                --
                It's so much harder to navigate than the old one. Even though it looks clean and nicely presented, it's impractical.
                --
                i'm not a fan of this. Although the design & aesthetics are better, I feel it is…

                • Fire TV support

                  Add itv player support for Amazon Fire TV there is already an stv app so surely itv player would be compatible.

                  • Make Live player available across all platforms.

                    I get terrible TV signal but don't want to be forced to resort to watching TV Shows live on my tiny iPhone screen when I've got a nice TV that wants to be used!

                    • screen rotation

                      Allow screen rotation so tablets in landscape mode can view naturally.

                            Hi

                            As the website is still a BETA site, it links you through to our app to watch content. If you already have our app click the “Watch in app” button or if you need to download it click the “Get the ITV Player app” button. You can’t watch shows within the BETA site currently.

                            Thanks

                          • I can't watch shows on the website on my mobile

                            I can't watch shows on the website it just keeps telling me to get the app but I don't want the app because it sucks. Please fix it

                            • Please show some innovation! Please Enable viewing of itv programmes when we (loyal supporters and avid fans)are working abroad!

                              Why can't we watch corrie and emmerdale for ex. Whilst working abroad!? If you really care about your customers, please allow this. Russian TV is comprehensible and I just want to see and catch up with my soaps! Thanks for everyone who agrees with this, supporting this so hopefully ITV Will wake up and enable this.

                                      You have left! (?) (thinking…)

                                      Hi,

                                      Unfortunately we do not have the content rights to pay Vampire diaries on mobile ipad/iphone’s.

                                      We are working with our legal & commercial teams to change this for our users, however in the mean time you may wish to try catching up on the itvplayer.com website.

                                      https://www.itv.com/itvplayer/the-vampire-diaries

                                      Sorry we cant be of more help at the moment.
                                      Kind regards
                                      Tom

                                      • Include as an app for 'Smart' TV

                                        Samsung has a lot of apps and this would make an excellent addition.

                                        • Adverts

                                          No adverts would be great, but if thats not possible, itv player need to give users the option to turn off adverts if they want to.
