Small change the UK Free comments system to help improve site performance

I have made a few changes to UK Free TV today to help the way the site is used on tablets and other mobile devices.

I've been looking at the usage figures for the site in 2014 and I see that it breaks down like this:

  • Windows PCs 52%
  • Apple Macs 8%
  • Mobile devices 19% (half iPhone, half Android)
  • Apple iPad 13%
  • Other tablets 5%

Modern Windows and Macs seem to have no problem with the UK Free TV, but there seemed to be a problem on mobile devices which have limited memory and CPU power.

For this reason, I have modified the comments system show less comments per page, and also require a click to show the comments.

Initial testing seems to show that the site loads much faster for all classes of device and is more-or-less instant on mobile devices.

If you have any comments, please leave them below: after clicking "show comments".

Michael: Of course the biggest "Sky+" thing goes on with mobile phones.

They are done with the same idea: you get a flashy bit of technology "for free", but you have to sign your life away for two years.

And does your phone become "unlocked" when you're contract up?
