Default Channel 5 on demand is a disgrace

Due to personal circumstances i have missed the end of BB and the beginning of CBB and was hoping to catch up on demand 5 well, forget about that. The streaming just doesnt work.

I mean, funnily enough the ADVERTS run fine, oh yes, i sat through those 3 times when reloading but when it actually came to watching CBB the site would either crash or take me back to the home page.

At this point I know the ads off by heart like they are stuck in my head#illuminaticonspiracy

But in all seriousness anyone else had this issue? Also are you guys enjoying the series so far?

I haven;t had that issue, but the amount of ads on there is quite ridiculous. Have watched 2 episodes on there this series and I swear theres more ads than there is content

They're absolutely awful. All the episodes are in the wrong place too. At least they were when I caught up the other day.

Channel 5 on demand is a mess I never use it. Luckily I have sky so I just catch up on their catch up services.

They're a disgrace. No wonder ratings won't boost when BB18 on was I tried to watch an episode from a Friday on a Sunday and it still wasn't uploaded. The less said about what happened in the CBB19 final on the on demand service, the better.

Whilst the ads are on turn your volume down - its not a consipracy - why do they advertise mens razors to me? Its to make you believe in capitalism and aspire to earn more money. Its subtle way of maintaining the idea that poor people have less than rich people. Its bad for the spirit of man and the earth.

I agree ive tried to catch up and nothing.

Not only that ive watched shows in the past where there will be ANOTHER ad break goes back into the show and minutes later the service has a glitch and goes back to an ad break.

Can I also add the official bb site is awful....who have they employed to design it and who is running it?

They also take forever to put their shows on demand. A few days ago I went to watch a previous nights episode at 2:30pm and it still wasn't there

Remove 'on demand is' from the title and replace it with 'are' and this thread is accurate
