No chromecast. Also, app is too eager to force ads upfront. Would be an improvement if ads only started a minute or 2 after you were sure the chosen programme actually plays. Sometimes programmes don’t work after having scaled annoying 1 to 2 min ad wall. Main gripe though is no chromecast option. If Channel 4 can do it there is no reason RTE can’t!

While it just about gets the job done, video quality is lackluster and the app lacks Chromecast compatibility. The general look and feel is outdated and I found it clunky to navigate. Realistically needs an overhaul.
