Hi there,
If you are using iPlayer on a Smart TV and it is freezing, then your internet connection may be too slow.
Try checking the speed of your internet connection by going to on a computer and running a speed test.
If the result is below 2MB download speed, then this is likely the reason why iPlayer is freezing.

sorry about the delay in replying.tried this solution several times but it did not work (yvm102).tried again at your suggestion and it worked, the only difference being i also turned the power off to the tv itself . £28 fee seems an awful lot to pay for such a simple answer ?.
