    Sorry, but demand5 just does not work-for me. It is a poorly constructed website & is not even that attractive. But more importantly, why let flipping adverts ruin the enjoyment! To me this smacks of pure greed. Bad enough on terrestial tv!

    Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear!! Once again another summer of highlights with technical problems from Channel 5. First lot of adverts play, then the coverage plays smoothly to give credit where it's due. But then when it goes to the next lot of commercials the screen goes black, nothing happens and have to refresh it. Which of course then means sitting through more adverts again. Sort it out please, concentrate of giving good quality service and the programme itself rather than ramming adverts down our throat.

    When it works it's great but too often it doesn't. The test series was ok (in the main) but I can't view the first one day match at all!

    Above 2 comments spot on. Just so unreliable. Very poor quality cricket highlights.

    Have to agree. I have fast broadband and have watched BBCi and 4OD tonight perfectly. This yet again is a disaster with juddery playback. Get Demand5 right or get rid of it altogether! Just not reliable.

    nice one channel 5 - another balls-up with highlights that don't play properly - you are terribly unreliable, like a 1980s fiat uno...
