    I am trying to get into STV on Demand to watch White House Farm. The log in is a joke, go onto the internet and do what is asked, no-where to enter the code given. TV screen is frozen between telling you to sign in, it will only take a few moments; if you cannot do that go back and you are back to square one. A few moments we have been trying for at least an hour!!! At the moment for us it is rubbish. We managed to watch the previous episodes of the above with no problem at all.,
