Accessibility Comments: 

Looks like BT have made an effort to make sure this app is accessible. The only issue I've found so far is when you go to watch a channel, VO will say "Watch. Dimd." It's lying here, because when you click on that supposedly dimmed item, it brings up the content. Some elements are unlabeled while watching video.

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads most page elements.

Button Labeling: 

Most buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability: 

There are some minor accessibility issues with this app, but they are easy to deal with.
