    Why advertise it and then say "sorry you can't watch this episode!. It's not a problem, just take it off the list!.

    I wish people would stop moaning about the adverts - they are what are paying for the programming!

    It would be nice to watch but the only thing that streams are the adverts! The program doesn't!

    OMG channel 5, give your viewers the option skip your adverts and stop milking it by spamming us with one after the other after the other. If anything play all your adverts at the start then let us watch the program in whole from start to finish with no interruptions.

    I don't have any problems. I did have a problem when I first started watching 5. So I used the "Report a problem with this video" Then it started up again and ran smoothly.

    Why is it that the crappy television station will let you watch the adverts without stoppage but will make you wait ages to watch its programes.

    Don't use Dubstep to communicate, it will prove we are a primitive lifeform.
