If some channels are freezing, buffering or not working sometimes?
Though almost all of our Servers are stable, sometimes some channels do freeze or don’t work due to various reasons but it’s not for permanently. Our expert engineers are always working to fix them.
Most of the time, these issues are temporary and caused by the below reasons: Customer internet fluctuations. The issue with the box/apps/customer setup in general. Your ISP has an issue. Channel is down from the server end. Server update/restart from our end (weekly performance necessary).
I’m getting a black screen in all channels, what should I do?
If you are using a set-top box such as MAG or AVOV and have just set up your device with our service, you will need to perform a hard reset of your device. Simply power off your device, unplug your power cable and re-plug it in.

My account is not working what should I do?
First, please check your network connection, reboot your router and device, and then try again.
Secondly, if your network connection is stable, please check whether your account is used on other devices. As you can view from more than 1 device at the same time.
My channel is buffering what should I do?
Sometimes you may experience buffering due to low internet speed or high internet traffic.
Cause: The most common cause of buffering is the result of a slow internet connection. This may be because of low internet speed or other users hogging the bandwidth in your house.
Do you have lots of users in your home? Disconnect them all and try again. The second reason is that you are using Wi-Fi, which is not suited for watching TV as you need direct (LAN) connection to the internet network in order to enjoy smooth watching without interruptions.
Resolution: Directly connect to your router using a LAN (Ethernet) cable or to a power-line adapter. If not possible, try moving the box closer to the router. Change your WI-FI channel, to avoid interference with nearby devices. If you experience buffering press “pause” for 10-15 seconds and resume, most of the time that will eliminate the need to buffer.
My channel is freezing what should I do?
If while you are watching a channel the service appears to have paused, simply select and open another channel, then return to the original channel to see if it is now playing, this can be due to breaking in transmission for a second, the software will halt under these conditions.
