Netflix

Why does my Netflix streaming movies stop & reload? It also the picture flashes on and off while watching. I have Fios so that should not happen?

Re: Netflix

Re: Netflix

It may be the device you are using to stream Netflix. I notice the problems you mention when I stream directly with my Samsung TV. However, I have no issues at all using my PS3.

Re: Netflix

I'm hard-wired and connection is slow and interrupted often. Hulu is worse so maybe it's them.

However speed test shows me that I'm not getting my promised speed either.

Re: Netflix

What sort of device are you using to speed test and watch Netflix on?
