I can't get iplayer or itv hub to work keeps saying not recognised
If you have casted I player to the TV via chromecast, then via assistant you can do basic control, like pause, unpause or stop.

That side of home really needs to up its game. I mean ffs at least Google could have sorted out the link between Google assistant and chromecast options. On Netflix, you can't even play a show via specific season or episode. You can watch but it starts from the first episode.
Apologies I'm talking about using Google assistant via phone. The home or mini might have extra functions and features
There is a section on the site dedicated for asking questions:

You'd get a better response posting there in the future.

That's because I player has not been updated to play via assistant. But once it's casted, you can control basic functions.

The app or whatever you are trying to play needs to be updated by the developers to allow it to work via assistant.
I got a reply from BBC on twitter they plan to add assistant feature soon.
