the 1st time using this service & all I keep getting is screen freeze every minute or so, it's so frustrating... I have the latest "SUPER HUB" from virgin media, so what the heck is causing this, surely it's something at your end (now tv) and if it is like this on every film, then I dont think I will be subscribing to this service, besides, I never had this problem at all with Netflix????
Please give me some advice, and not the "click here" for advice, and when clicking on it, the message "ERROR" not very promising at all on the 1st viewing....

Thanks for your post,
Could you try perhaps playing other movies? If you are still experiencing the same problem it sounds like an connectivity issue. Firstly it's recommended that you restart your router as this can fix a lot of connectivity issues.
Using a wireless connection can affect your viewing experience. Using an Ethernet cable to connect your device straight to your router should remove this as a factor.
We also recommend that you have at least a 2.5 mb/s download speed when watching a NOW TV movie so you can get the most from our service.
I hope this helps you resolve your issue but if not please don't hesitate to get back in touch with us.

I'm sorry to hear that you are having issues.
So that I can more effectively help, can you answer a few questions and check a few things?
First of all, we always recommend that you have at least a 2.5 mb/s download speed when watching a NOW TV movie so you can get the most from our service. It is also advised that you avoid using a wireless connection where possible as this can cause problems when streaming large segments of data.
Could you also try some other movies on NOW TV so we can determine if this issue is local to one movie. After that, please reset your router and try another web browser supported by NOW TV to see if this helps.
Please let us know how you get on.

It keeps freezing every 30 seconds more or less. It was not like this at the beginning of using the service. I know it is not my internet connection as everything else streams perfectly fine. I am also with netflix and I do not have any problems streaming from them.
It is really frustrating as I do want to watch quite a few films on here with the family.

Thanks for contacting NOW TV regarding your buffering issue.
We normally recommend that you have a broadband speed of at least 2.5mb/s, to ensure quality viewing whilst accommodating any other devices; that might be using your broadband at the same time. You can check your download speed using an online Internet speed test or by contacting your Internet provider.
If you think this is not the reason for the issue you are experiencing, please click here for suggested buffering solutions or contact us again.

What device or devices is this happening on?
(this thread is in the Xbox 360 section, but the thread itself covers multiple devices so it has become a tad confusing:()
