BBC iPlayer app constantly buffering/locking up

Question

Anyone have a problem with this app running on LG 4K TV?

iPlayer app constantly buffers or locks up

I switch to NOW TV box (not app) & can watch  iPlayer without an issue.

Also NETFLIX & other catch up apps  work without any buffering or locking.

Interested to hear your thoughts....

Not that I use BBC iPlayer a huge amount, but on the occasions I have, I have not had an issue with buffering, lock ups or the app crashing.

My TV = UH650V - webOS FW V. 04.30.40

Sorry for the late response but I recently bought an LG TV and am seeing the same issue with the BBC iPlayer app.  Often it will pause with a black screen and the buffering animation; sometimes it will recover but other times it gives up with a "Something went wrong playing this programme" message and error code 02100.   Once it has given the error message the only way I can get it to work again is to completely exit the iPlayer and restart it.

I suspect a bug in the app.
