@Beth_G Not to be rude but - do you ever actually solve any of these?
There seem to be dozens of us all over this forum complaining for years now. The results are always the same:
1. Private message chains that, while appreciated, do nothing to resolve the issue.
2. The avove envtually devolved into calls useless customer service reps that give tech-illiterate instructions about switching things on and off, trying different browsers, changing passwords, reinstalling apps, and so on and so forth.
3. If you're particularly stubborn about resolving the issue, you can go around in circles until eventually you end up back in the same place, with zero progress.
I respect that none of this is the fault of the team here on the forums, but it's still a waste of everyone's time, yours included.
I'd rather just hear "you can't login because our system is broken and we don't know how to fix it" than see endless pretense to help when it leads nowhere. Insanity is repeating the same thing over and over while expecting different results, after all.
Completely agree with your comments here, nearly two weeks and got nowhere. As you say keep getting told to rebook, reinstall etc, then my daughter logs in with her account and it all works ok, therefore must be a problem their end
Thanks Helen. I find it unbelievable that the ongoing pretense of first-line customer support being able to fix this is maintained.
I opened my original issue on these forums months ago - I went through the same process as you. I ended up in the same place as you: back at square one.
This week, thinking nothing would come of it, I sent a message to my "FirstName_Initials" forum adviser to see if they had gotten a response from "the team" after leaving me hanging back in August.
Then, today, I received a rather dry voicemail message from the standard customer service support team AGAIN - essentially meaning I've been passed back to first-line support AGAIN. It doesn't take a degree in management to know that this is an extremely ineffective way to provide support for an issue like this.
The never-ending stream of forum threads about this should be being collated into a ticket for their platform engineering team, with the urgency and priority being tethered to the volume of reports.
After that, they should TELL users that this is what's happening. It's really that simple.
I'm already laughing at myself for getting this frustrated about a bloody TV app, but the way this is constantly mishandled makes Fawlty Towers look like an efficiently run business.
If anyone from customer service would like to step in and admit to contributing to these endless parody then please do. If you're going to respond with the usual "Sorry for the bad experience ... Talking to the team ... We'll PM you" nonsense, then save your breath!
Thank you for your PM. I have updated your ticket with the information you added in your message.
I know that this has gone on for some time now and I do apologise for the frustration caused. Please be assured that the ticket is still being worked on and should hopefully be resolved soon. They may also give you a call to discuss further if they require any more details.
