    well works just fine for me no speed issues at all. Adverts always suck when watching online as they never used to be there and this is y ppl started watching oline to get away from them. Currys is crap and they wouldnt care who they assosiate with, they would sponcer hitler if he gave them good coverage and if your not in UK and wanting to view it look up the details for a 'Proxy Server' The internet is global ppl sites should not be confined to one contrey

    How long will it be before they actually decide to look at this problem. Every time most if not all try to view the Gadget Show we are faced with video that is never watchable, I just can't be bothered with it anymore. Sooner they realise that people are turning off and not coming back the sooner they will fix it. I'll not be back

    Gadget show is brilliant but this website is crap, it doesnt stream properly yet adverts work fine, its obvious that this is just a money spinning website but can I remind the owners that for all of us that experience poor streaming we will not visit again and you will loose a massive number of hits. If I were Currys I would not want my brand subconciously connected with the poor experience that this website delivers! SORT IT FIVE!!!

    Demand 5's video player is totally GARBAGE, seriously need to sort this out, I spend more time refreshing the page and watching ads, than watching what I came to watch. Please sort this out!

    Why still using flash!!!!!! Just watched iPad on tv outdoing the kindle fire so why no html5 here? Tell me when your site will be updated.

    love gadgets but find some of the tests on muti thousand pound extremes pointless to me and perhaps many more, we cannot afford them even if they were available would also prefer the prizes on offer to be split more evenly between several winners rather than one individual which is too many to accommodate anyway

    why can't they get the adverts to stop interrupting the streaming? I keep having to refresh it.

    Could the Gadget Show do a round up of UK ISP download and upload speeds in different towns. I live in Reading and pay O2 nearly thrity pounds a week for 20 kbps download and 1.7 kbps upload but get no more than 5 down and 1 up. Regardless the Gadget Show is superb and always leaves me impatient to see the next episode. Might have something to do with Polyanna being so jaw-dropping-beautiful.

    Ipad 4G. Shame the 4G doesn't work in the UK. Even when we get full 4G, it wont be the same type. So Jason should have just run it with a 3G sim to give a fair comparison.
