    to all who say it freezes a few steps 1) UPDATE i.e. update flash your browser windows makes shure it's fluuly updated it can make a large differnece 2)press play then pause white a while the press play this will download the most of the proggramme then istead of streaming it just loades from downloaded content 3) stop all other downloads as that will slow internet (that includes other computers on your network) 4)try at non-peak times or when you get your fastest speeds

    Jerky picture on demand and yet again, too many ad breaks. We don't all have the attention span of a goldfish. Solid first episode.

    STILL freezing after what.........4days!! @LukeM - you can report it by scrolling the right hand scroll bar down.....it moves the video behind the report box. I already have reported it though, had no feedback, and, obviously, THEY STILL HAVEN'T FIXED IT!!!!!

    These guys have got it easy. No 9 to 5. No financial worries. Big guns, hot chicks. No wonder Rick gave up law and teaching for his sheriff's badge. I'm ready to join. It's a bit like shopping in Bolton or working for Santander.

    dear demand 5 team - please sort out your live streaming as i cannot load this and you are only making available for another 4 days. i have tried IE9 and crome but it still doesnt work, bbc iplayer, itv player and 4OD all work perfect so it must be your end! oh and another thing, i cant report a fault with the video as the report function loads behind the video making it impossible to use!

    Crap Crap Crap - that's what Channel 5 online is. What a bunch of amateurs. Looks like the picked up the guys who couldn't cut it at the BBC....

    Love this show but Channel 5's 'iPlayer' equivalent is really very very shabby - very unreliable stream for this user (who has no other issues with browser/ISP speed), plus when you refresh or adjust the slider there are either massive delays or you are introducted to another 120 seconds of adverts - put some more effort in channel 5, very very poor show by your technical team, don't bother bidding for a show like this if you then ruin the viewing experience by not having the technical know-how to steam it properly. I shall just buy this on DVD when it comes out as your streaming experience is terrible!

    Has taken me about 3 hours to get through this. Channel 5 seriously needs to learn how to run videos on this junk site.

    for those who have problems watching it, like i did, if you are using chrome to watch it, use windows explorer instead. it worked for me. good luck!

    Walking dead was brilliant as usual but channel 5 on demand spoiled it with the jumpy viewing, the blurred images and constant freezing, what a disgraceful site. wont be visiting again

    managed to watch although it froze every few minutes... very annoying! the adverts never seem to freeze though! had exactly the same problem watching CSI. it isn't my connection as bbc iplayer works fine...

    Workaround: If screen goes black try coming out of fullsceen mode (press Esc). Wait until ad break is over before going fullscreen again. Worked for me. (Browser issue, maybe? I'm using Chrome on Windows 7)

  • aw

    Not good. Got about 20 mins in and then at the 3rd set of adverts it all froze. Unlike the iPlayer if you close and reopen 5OD it takes you back to the start - very frustrating. Please fix and cut down the adverts.

    for people that picture goes black, usually during the adverts, or for those whose pictures break up, press the fullscreen button one or twice and that should resolve the problem :D works for me anyways :D

    As usual, it won't play. It's the same with most Channel 5 OD programmes - I've seen the first 3 seconds several times now and would quite like to see the rest sometime...
