I've been streaming Desperate Housewives and Brothers and Sisters via TVNZ ONDEMAND for the last few weeks due to myskyHD not been able to record 3 channels lols

But today for the first time it is stuttering and pausing.  It's not done this before.

Just wondering if anyone else is having the same problem?  I am on ADSL2+ and 200m away from the cabinant.
 
I have had slow HTTP the last couple of weeks, but it hasn't affected streaming tv.  I had a chorus man come out here on Saturday and he said he changed some things around. I don't know what that means.

But I still have slow loading times on pages.

Speedtests all come out normal.  The tvnzondemand speed test was normal.

It managed to stream the frist 20minutes of Brothers and Sisters fine.

So I guess it is either my connection, router or TVNZ's website?

If others aren't having the same issues then I might have to try replacing my modem.  Although my Linksys AG300 is only a couple of years old.

Yes there was a box to update when I first loaded the TVNZOnDemand website.

Do you think that is the cause of the problem?

Firefox - will install Google Chrome and see if that rectifies the issue.

Will have to stream Greys Anatomy tomorrow.
