When watching now TV using app on pixel 2 to Chromecast I find that it occasionally drops out. Usually around one time per one hour episode.
The video and sound will stop and the TV reverts back to the Chromecast home screen. Need to reopen the now TV app on phone, reconnect to Chromecast and start viewing again .
Anyone else had similar issues? Thanks .
I'm also experiencing this issue. No issues with any other chromecast activity (YouTube, BBC iPlayer, netflix, etc), just Now TV. I Notice it the most with Sky Sports News playing live, rather than box sets etc. Like others have said, the chromecast shows a buffering circle and then returns to the standard chromecast backdrop. Using the app on my Samsung S8+ restarts the casting immediately .. the wost I've had is drop out every 5-10 minutes.
Seems like a localised issue, is there any beta programs we can join to get newer versions of the app to see if this improves the situation?
Have any of you updated Google Home App , if you have then try this to fix it , close now tv app , close google home app , restart your hub / router , then wait for hub to connect to internet then tap cast square on now tv app then try cast something that was causing issue.
Hi. Pixel2/Chromecast/Google-WiFi/BT-openreach/Infinity2-fibre and having same issue. Just watched Liverpool-Hudderfield match on BT sport and not a single issue. Started to watch F1 USA on NowTV and stream constantly dropping back to circles screen about every 10/15 mins. Very annoying. NowTV stream is so bad. What are NowTV doing that stops their stream working properly with Chromecast. The resolution of the picture is well below BT-sport stream as well but while Sky have the rights will have to put up with it. Grrr.
