Mine is slow as well, only tried 1 file.

It uses P2P, so may be there's not enough sources.

On their forum, some people are complaining it's slow, whilst others say it downloads fast.

Well I watched one of the programs early this morning after clubbing, and it started off with very poor quality, and I was quite disappointed. However when the actual programme started, it was great quality, and a better picture than I get on my TV, as I get pretty poor reception
