My Channels Are Not Working?

guaranteed you 99.9 % availability/uptime over the course of a year. We strive to provide you a high level of service at very discounted rates. So please keep this in mind first and foremost.

If a channel is down, we will do our best to restore that back to service by swapping sources and also reporting it as a down channel to our provider. If your well-being is dependent on a single channel to be up 100 % of the time then you really need to consider cable or satellite as your primary service. We will be glad to be secondary service.

Please use the guidelines below before reporting a channel:

– Stop and give it a couple of minutes. We reboot and swap channels when needed. The channel may be coming back from our work.
– Is this happening on all channels? If it is, it may be on your end.
– Reboot your devices and wait for 30 secs before turning them back on (STBs, Android Boxes, Routers, Cable modems)
– Make sure you are connecting using a Ethernet cable to devices and not via Wifi.
– Try using a VPN service if all the above are not working.

Too much buffering?

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 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 and more logical reason is that you are using Wi-Fi, it doesn’t matter how fast your internet is…Wi-Fi as whole is slow and unreliable. it just is…. You should avoid using it when possible

Resolution:

  • Directly connect to your router using an ethernet cable or to a powerline adaptor.
  • 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.

How to fix IPTV Stalker buffering issues, really simple to do.
