I keep having problems with streaming shows on TVNZ OD on my Samsung TV. First off I have to sit through the ad and sometimes the next part of the programme won't load after the ads. Then I have to go back to the beginning and re-watch the same ads. 

 

It also takes a lot longer to buffer a programme (meaning soft worse than VHS quality images before it settles) than say streaming on Netflix.

 

Is this a Samsung app issue or a TVNZ OD issue?

Is the TV connected to the modem via Ethernet or Wi-Fi? Also you don't mention what type of internet connection you have


Linux


Banana?

Also, does it work better if you access the App through FreeviewPlus (Green button?) than the Samsung Store App?
