GCN Plus App

Is anyone else having a problem with the GCN+ app? It was working fine until yesterday when it developed a strange fault - when watching a race replay video the progress bar that allows you to move to different points in the video works ok until I Chromecast to my tv when this bar changes to only displaying the amount of the video you have actually watched, so no way of moving it on......

  • Orientation makes no difference , have restarted phone, will try a uninstall and reinstall
  • Reinstalling makes no difference either.

    I've had the same problem. It seems niggly in general when casting. Fortunately I still have eurosport for a few more weeks.

    I saw it launched on Fire stick and so have been using it on Amazon.

  • I've switched to using the Firestick app and it's great. I've never found casting or airplay to be particularly reliable from any app, not just the GCN one.
  • The GCN app is the only one that I have problems with the Chromecast, works fine with everything else!

    Same for me. Unfortunately my eurosport subscription runs out in a couple of weeks so I either have to stump up again for that or make do with gcn working about half the time.

    I raised the same question about two months ago with gcn , I’m still waiting for it to be resolved, it looks like I will be buying Eurosport In June

    To move the conversation on slightly from gripes about casting, what do people think about the films they've added in the last couple of months?

    I've enjoyed the Legends episodes on the whole and I really like the bike packing one in Spain. Not such a fan of the Mark Beaumont one and Adam Blythes jerseys was a bit too niche for me

    Erm...to be completely honest Ive forgotten about them.

    It would be good if they were a bit more diverse than long GCN YouTube vids, but I don't use it for that I guess so... 🤷‍♀️

    I like them, and I've even had my non cycling partner enjoying some of the more travel documentary style ones (Rwanda, Spain, Columbia etc)

    Me and my wife watched the Mark Beaumont ones, I think she preferred the Africa one to the round the world in 80 days - she isn't usually a fan of "people doing stupid/dangerous things for the sake of it" type ones, especially when they're trying to break pointless records and it all goes tits up. Her response is "well just stop doing it then". Whereas the Africa one is a bit more of a travelogue as well. The Colombia gravel one was good too.

    I watched the penny farthing ones too.
