Atrocious ITV player on Freesat Freetime

Any idea if the ITV player is due to ever be replaced on the Freesat platform? The current player is a joke - wifey has made me press back into service the Youview box just to get an ITV player that works.

ITV player is awful on every platform. They ticked the box, but you can bet they aren't interested in people who say it's not good enough in 2017..

Those with access to the HTML version report the picture is significantly better. Will have to wait for it to appear on G2 Humax boxes to confirm (or otherwise). You are correct though, the MHEG version is dire.

It is reasonable enough on Youview boxes (for what it is). The MHEG Freesat version is something a kid sat in front of the BBC micro Teletext generator software for an afternoon would be embarrassed to have put out.

Just compared it on my Full-HD laptop display. ITV-Hub playing back ITV 1 (704 x 576) looks very similar to All-4.
