BBC iPlayer not working on UE32ES5500K TV Smart Hub

First Poster

For a few months BBC iPlayer has not working been working on our UE32ES5500K TV Smart Hub. If we click on the Button, it just goes to a black screen. 4OD, ITV and other services are working OK. It won't let me Uninstall the app, so I can't reinstall a new version. It says its on Version 2.02603. If I try and run it from the App Store screen, it still goes to a black screen. Any suggestions?


Hi all,


Updated official TV Support page link that has a little more info/clarification on the BBC iPlayer issue here: 

Thanks for the information from dc25. Turned off the TV and did a factory reset as suggested. Works!

Message for Samsung, all the BBC apps have stopped on the Samsung HT-E8200 Soundbar. I’ve tried the online update but states up to date. Please can you advise?
