Why is Virgin TV Anywhere the only company using a Flash based player, why?
We've all know since the late 90s that Flash is incredibly unstable and its reflected in this appallingly bad application. It constantly crashes and riddled with buggy behaviour which means I rarely if ever get an uninterrupted enjoyably user experience.
Look at your competitors and learn, don't waste time trying to fix this bad application. I see on these forums that people are still having the same issues that they have had for many years ago.
Surprise surprise the free to air rubbish uses the same technology, I rarely if at all watch that, I should have qualified that statement as I pretty much only watch paid for TV - Sky Sports, BT Sport but there are often things I like such as Comedy Central but once the TV Anywhere player starts crashing its every 5 mins, last year it was the lagging issue.
When I compare quality I look to the best and the performance of Sky Sports and BT Sports online players is light years ahead. BT Sport had horrendous problems after launched but they fixed it within a month or so. Year on year TV Anywhere has the same long standing issues.
I know building software can be difficult but are some getting it so right and others so badly wrong. Why?
