Occasionally it just stops working, even when you're subscribed, also nobody answers your support messages. There is a much better one on the store called BEEBS which unblockers ITV too

only works for 20 minutes, which is fine, as 20 minutes is better than none, but the real issue is that BBC iPlayer still recognizes that the unblocker is being used, and gives an error message before telling you to disable your unblocker. please fix this, I am sure that I would re download it if it actually worked, even if it was just for 20 minutes.
