Netflix/HBO MAX Lag/buffering constantly

Any suggestions on how to fix the issues with Netflix and HBO Max(not as bad as Netflix)? Netflix always buffers, making it hard to watch anything. I’ve already uninstalled the channel and reinstalled it, twice.

Re: Netflix/HBO MAX Lag/buffering constantly


Thanks for the inquiry.

Please be aware that buggering issues are typically caused from internet connectivity. Have you tried rebooting your wireless network to see if that helps what you are seeing?

Please keep us posted what you find out.
