Buffering on Wired TV

Hi NowTV,


Since joining NowTV broadband (end of December 2020) I have started seeing a lot of buffering on my Sony smart TV. iPlayer is the worst, but I often see it freeze on Netflix, then suddenly speed up. I have never seen this problem before (over 3+ years).  My previous ISP provided exactly the same bandwidth - 60 to 65Mb/s download but it never ever buffered. I have a GigE network hard wired to the TV.  Is the contention ratio particularly high with NowTV? Can my NowTV hub's "logs" be checked in case there's an intermittent h/w fault?


Thanks guys,

Not being a broadband customer with Now TV all I can do is provide basic advice.


Have you tried to reboot the router? Like unplugging it for a few minutes?


Same could be done with the Sony TV. 


Worst case you can give the broadband team a call as it is effecting all apps on the TV and not just Now TV.

How to submit your complaint:

  • Give us a call on 08007591213 to speak directly to a NOW TV advisor.
FYI that I do not work for NOW, just a NOW customer trying to help
