CONSISTENT VIDEO PLAYBACK ISSUE
STEP #1: LOCK ONTO THE LEAST DEMANDING VIDEO STREAM
You may be having intermittent issues with your Internet connection. This solution will lock you into the lowest available video stream that may smooth out your video playback experience.
PLEASE NOTE: If you are on a Mac device and/or using Safari, the HD button is not present. In order to lower the stream speed, you will need to switch to the Google Chrome browser.
STEP #2: SWITCH TO AN ALTERNATE INTERNET BROWSER
Your Internet cache in your browser may need to be cleaned/cleared out. If you are unsure about how to clear your browser cache, an alternate, easier and quicker option is to try switching to a different Internet browser to continue viewing the program. If you're on Microsoft Edge - try switching to view the program on the Google Chrome browser. Other popular browsers such as Opera and Firefox are compliant with program playback. Following this step resolves the vast majority of playback issues.
PLEASE NOTE that Internet Explorer is no longer a supported web browser. If you are attempting to view the video content using Internet Explorer, you will be required to switch to a current web browser such as Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, or if you are on a Mac, Safari..
