Some TVpad VOD apps are not working currently (edit: fixed now)

I have read that the following apps are not working currently (mostly firmware 3.0 apps):

They are currently working to resolve this problem. 

By the way, the firmware upgrade from 2.72 to 3.0 is still not available

Edit: They have now fixed these apps. Upgrade these apps online or download these apps 

and install these apps again (of course, delete the old apps first)
