its good these are on PS3 now!

 

The picture seems ok as per bbc ps3 iplayer, but the site design for both of them doesnt seem as easy to use as BBC iplayer

 

what are your thoughts, likes, disklikes on these new players ?

I tried the ITV player but it was like a regional channel instead IMO the programming is horrid so thats outta the way.. horrible design to... 4oD is a bit tricky to use but that works like well and its good to be able to access genres so easily.

It's not too complicated to use in all fairness.

I was hoping we'd get the full 4OD experience with catch-up on all Channel 4 programmes. But we only get the programmes recently shown in the last week or so?

4OD
Picture Quality - fine.
layout - uses more flash tech than is realy needed.
better than cable 4OD as it has a resume function.
Content - 30 days (normal) But NO US content as it COSTs more in repeat fees.

ITV
Picture quality - good, Higher because I know what the detail should look like. As actors and products were current.
Layout - Realy simple. HTML used in stead of FLASH, simple buttons. This means faster loading and that makes it better than CH4 but it's to simple like BBC IPLAYER.
Content - 30 days again but unlike CH4. OLD repeat content is here for ONDemand if it was shown on ITV 1-4 it might be here. US repeat fees have been paid. so first showing of US content is listed on demand, but currently there's only 1 US show.

Both services suffer from advert localisation pauses and buffering. were the advert has to be selected and loaded.
ITV is upto date with advert rules for Online ondemand so has the Max adverts.
CH4 is using CABLE Ondemand rules with less adverts. Different than CH4s YouTube mirror.

Now waits for five on demand catch up. As it will actualy be used unlike these as there's nothing on Itv or Ch4 I'll watch.

I like the addition of these, the more the better. I dont use these as much as iPlayer, just because more programs i like are on it.

Cant  use either on my set.

 

Neither appear to be compatable with the BD remote and both load and then freeze after a few seconds.

 

My connection is about 8mb

 

Any suggestions?

ITV

-----

 

Bad lip-sync in a lot of videos.

Nearly always freezes my ps3 in an ad break (have to hard reset).

No search function.

 

4oD

-------

Missing a load of content,thats on the normal 4oD (all balls of steel episodes for example).

Again,no search function.

 

Still,its early days.And i'm more than happy when it works (except for all the missing 4od stuff).

But the hard-freezing on the ITV player needs adressing.

I had a quick look around the ITV player and it seemed pretty crappy to be honest - the design is pretty basic but there was nothing I wanted to watch, so I can't comment on the picture or sound.

 

4OD is great, easy to navigate, picture quality and sound are good. watching Father Ted in bed this morning helped ease my hangover :)

Itv player is basic but fine. 4od on the other hand returns me to home screen every time I try to approve anything that pops the parental warning. How do I get past that? I'm using the bd remote btw. Thanks! Adam

I think they're great but a bit limited. However, more football shows and highlights would be greatly appreciated. =)

Really impressed with 4OD picture quality, but the content just isnt there.  When you compare BBC iPlayer show every BBC show from the last week, 4OD only have a very small ammount of shows.  But its still pretty amazing and its another thing the eggs box £3.60 hasnt got.

I wasnt even aware that 4od had updated PS3 evn though i have complained to channel 4 about this. having just downloaded the new 4od icon what an improvement looks great. Having just gone through the interface and seeing the programme content its tons better begs the question why 4od didnt do this a long time ago. One slight problem when i went to search for something the Ps3 just froze so i had to come out of it and start it again but apart from that great stuff.

My 4OD isn't working :(

 

I'm watching over Wifi on my Super Slim and I get the "Welcome to 4od" video then it goes black before even showing an ad. Anybody got any ideas or should I post my issue else where?
