I`ve been on the beta since the start and the downloads are very intermittent and slow. Suggest people read the bulletin board before they jump in. Remember it is still a beta!

I have registered twice in the last few days not head from them yet

I just got the email !

So it can take a couple of days for them to get back to you?

For me it would seem.

Got the email and trying first download - seems hopelessly slow

  Al94 20:00 29 Jul 2007

So far 1.25 hours to download 141MB on a 2MB connection, 29% of a 60min programme!

I have uninstalled iPlayer after noticing very much slower web browsing and a lot of hard drive activity even after stopping the download. Traced it to kservice.exe running which is a type of p2p client installed with iPlayer. Read more about it here click here
After uninstall, all is fine again but, imho, this is software to avoid!
