    Anybody achieving success with BBC iPlayer on BB10?
    1 Using an app
    The apk 4.75, an old stalwart, still installs but now halts immediately with an instruction to update.
    The current 4.132 fails with the familiar "unable to install" message.
    UpToDown offers many old versions from 4.75 to 4.131. Can anybody please cite a working version?
    2 Using the web
    Visiting the iPlayer website with the BB10 browser (or any other browser) first insists on a login. That's fine. But now I find the visit simply stalls without even generating that first request. Simply does nothing. I've tried Desktop Mode - same non response. Nor is there any obvious prevention. Can anybody advise how to traverse this site?
    Or - for both (1) and (2) - is this just another nail in the BB10 coffin?
    Thank you!

    The coffin was buried years ago and the grass has already grown back over.

    Likely, the Beeb has instituted a minimum version level required that is too high for the Bronze Age 4.3 Android runtime. For the site itself, the dated cipher support in the OS is likely not allowing the connection after login to properly negotiate.
