BBC iPlayer HELP page and service status

iPlayer Help

iplayerhelp.external.bbc.co.uk/tv

 

A useful BBC service status and general iPlayer help page.
Reports on "latest programme issues", downloads availability and information on different devices - mobile, tablet, PC.

The BBC used to have an iPlayer diagnostics and speed test page - that was removed and I'm guessing replaced by these 'help' pages.
