This is streaming CU+ via the Explora ... thought that was clear from all the previous posts ?

There is no buffering on CU?? That content is already on our Exploras? This issue - in my case at least - is purely is related to CU+ content being watched via a connected Explora.

Ouch people, speak to your public relations dept. and they'll tell you that's a terrible answer - sounds like no progress at all (AGAIN) and a complete lack of ability to even understand the problem!

Hi @krugie - have you recently tried watching anything on CU+, after the issues you had last Friday? If so was it a series or a movie on HD or SD? 


Hi @Grace_DStv1 - I have watched  several oher programs on CU+ since Friday without problems - but all out of peak times. This issue has  been reported  endlessly and has been occurring - literally - for years - and only at peak times.

 

In this specific instance it was Episode 24 of The Big Bang Theory.

We've also heard it often, in fact for years, but it's never really got better...

Since we don't receive any feedback about these attemps and steps taken to resolve it, we only have your word for it...
