    After being driven half mad, and nearly flinging my PlayBook across the roomfrom trying to watch a 30 minute show on the appalling ITV Player website(I think I managed 2.5(EDIT- That's two and a half!!) minutes of the show and about 6 sets of adverts...), I have found a solution that works for me. Just watched two programs in a row without a single hiccup, freeze or repeated set of adverts and the actual playback is a lot less jerky. Nearly as good as BBC iPlayer.
    I used the STV website. Much better website, I don't understand how it can work so much better, but it does. Or more to the point, how the ITV one can be so much worse!

    It takes a tiny bit of work. You have to make sure the PlayBook browser is set to not give your location, and then when you try to play a video, the website will ask you for a postcode. Just find any postcode from north of the border(Google maps and the Post Office postcode finder are helpfull here) and you're good to go. Happy viewing
