    Google Assistant & BBC Sounds

    I cannot get any BBC Radio stations to play via the Google Assistant. I have tried my Google mini, phone and Android Auto. With the commands "play radio Newcastle or play radio Newcastle " it asks me to install Apple Music! Can someone try it, to see if they have the same problem, thanks.

    Question Huge subtitles on BBC iplayer on Apple TV 4K?

    Apple TV 4k complete newbie so apologies if this is a daft question (a search didn’t throw any light).... I had a quick look at “The Bridge”, on BBC iplayer and the subtitles seem to take up a quarter of the screen, is there any way to make them smaller? Not sure where to start looking?

    Anyone having trouble streaming UHD content on BBC iplayer?

    I'm trying to watch the latest episode of His Dark Materials and it won't play. As if it's still buffering. It plays HD content fine. My TV did just update to the latest firmware so I'm not sure if it has something to do with that or the iPlayer. Anyone else experiencing problems with iPlayer?

    Anyone been watching the new series on BBC 'Industry'. It's about a group of young people working in the banking sector in London. It's compulsive viewing and really sucks you in. It's worth a look.

    iPlayer video and audio quality -- BBC response

    As some AVforum members might have noticed, I've been pretty vocal about the rubbish video and audio quality provided by the BBC's iPlayer app., the service that we as licence payers, are expected to fund. To that end I've been exchanging my gripes with the BBC via a series of issue reports. I'd...
