Re: Now TV App running incredibly slow when navigating

If you have the white NOW TV box or the purple Roku streaming stick then you will have to buy something more up to date.

 

I have both of those and they are both unusable now.  This is because they have a slow processor in them that can't cope with modern apps.

 

I recently bought a Roku Express, which was released in Autumn 2017 I think, and it works great as it has a much faster processor.  It is quite cheap to buy on Amazon.

Re: Now TV App running incredibly slow when navigating

I've been having same issues with mine and initially thought it was a remote problem. I have a stick and probably only purchased maybe a year ago at the most.  It has become so unresponsive. It's as though it takes 4 or 5 mins for it to catch up. Once you eventually get to your selection watching programmes isnt an issue. I've tried updates, unplugging from tv for 5 mins. It's pretty much become unusable and I'm annoyed I'm paying for something I cannot watch.

While it’s plugged in, hold in the little reset button on the side for 15-30 seconds, and when it wakes up, set it up again.

 

This can get rid of a lot of cruft.

Thankyou..I have gone back to my old black box for now and it's working fine  but when I get a spare minute I'll plug the stick back in and follow your instructions. Thankyou.
