Stream quality

So I have a Samsung smart tv, I can watch Netflix at 4K full quality, no buffering, for hours, perfect. Same exact setup when watching NowTV it’s mostly in super blurry mode, stream quality 200ish, stops to buffer every few minutes. What's up with that?!

Re: Stream quality

I've got a similar set up and (touch wood) don't get any issues with NOWTV buffering and get a consistent 720p picture.

I'm using Samsung's own NOWTV app and a cabled internet connection, if that helps.

I truly believe that Netflix has better software, but NowTV seems to be a long way behind. It’s just like Sky too, withholding HD content where possible. It’s 2019 ffs!

There're so many systems involved, BT line, house wiring, router, powerline, smart tv, that its a difficult to isolate the issue. I'll see how it goes.

Re: Stream quality

Its been this way for a long time.  NOW are cheating paying customers.  I can stream netflix / amazon all day- simultaneously on 4 devices around the house at high resolution.  Now TV, only app running, whether on PC or tv- keeps pixellating and dropping resolution.
