  • Copyright challenge Feb 16, 2010

    By Caribbean Swede
    Works great and loads video fast. Only challenge is that many clips are not viewable in the US due to copyright laws. If this can be fixed, a definate 5 star app!

    Please fix autohiding of the player controls. I often watch Rapport and other shorter programs, and for some reason the play controls are never hiding, so the image is very dim and obscured by the controls. Not sure if it's related to the running time of the show?

    I really love this app. I used it to watch the Eurovision Song Contest here in NYC and it worked perfectly the entire time I “mirrored” it with my Apple TV box.
  • Fantastic app Feb 23, 2010

    Videos load quickly and it even has the text on some broadcast so you can read along. Very easy to use; very good design. Skitbra!

    Brilliant! Beautiful! Get this and SR poddradio app -- two must-haves for all Swedish lovers. Did I say this is a beautiful app? It is. Now let's do the iPad version

    App on Samsung TV frequently stops playing videos and provide error code. Seems like the app not buffers or reinitiates sessions. None of YouTube, Netflix, Disney+, ComHem & T4Play apps have the same issue
  • Sound and video is not synced Jul 22, 2010

    By US Swede
    Using the app on an iPhone 4, the sound and video is out of sync. The video stops playing after a while and i just get the quicktime logo. I'm on wireless.

    You pause the video, and switch apps or lock the phone. Then it just randomly starts playing in the background, with the audio audible. It might randomly start playing again in your pocket, or when you unlock your phone and use some other app. It's been like that for years, really terrible for an otherwise great app. This is the same on an Samsung Galaxy S9, S8 and my daughters Motorola something android phone

    The function of the app is very problematic compared to the competition. Examples: *When (chrome-)casting a live stream, you cannot move backwards to already played content. *When buffering you cannot se how far you have watched on a programme. When the stream then crashes and forgets where you were, which happens frequently, you have to guess. *Extremely poor performance on slow connections. On YouTube I can watch multiple videos in the time it takes for SVT to display available ones.

  • Great app - also for iPad Apr 15, 2010

    Streaming TV, works like a charm on my iPad. Menu is made for iPhone, but the programs are sharp.

    SVT, Swedens public broadcaster, delivers an amazing browsing experience. Far better then most US services.

    Very good choice of things to watch but sometimes fails to cast to chromecast (casting symbol missing). Starting YouTube and cast from there will bring back the cast button to SVT-play. Also in one of five times the SVT-play app isn't populated with anything to watch - only closing SVT-play and restarting it will bring back content to the app. Please fix, these issues have been apparent for as long as I can remember.

    Some programs are not displaying in other countries than Sweden. I don't have autorotation option on my phone and the app is not rotating the picture so everything is very small and hurts eyes during watching. SVT Barn is much better in this matter.

    The app is really good to watch swedish programs but it is not working with chromecast. Only one video can be casted before Chromecast is not responding.

  • Does it work abroad? Nov 23, 2011

    So far it hasn't worked a single time. Is it the case hat it only works in Sweden? Perhaps that could be noted somewhere?

    Appen hänger sig varje eller varannan gång när man ska spela nästa avsnitt av ett program med någon text om att ett fel har uppstått. När ska ni fixa det så man inte behöver starta om appen och försöka 5-10 ggr innan man kan spela upp?
