Please follow these guidelines to have an enjoyable movie viewing experience.
- For successful live streaming, you need a high-quality internet connection. A connection that is sufficient to check email or load web pages may not be good enough for streaming. You don’t need “an” internet connection, you need a high-quality internet connection, particularly to do uninterrupted HD streaming.
- Not all connections are of the same quality. You want to use a wired ethernet connection and not use WiFi as WiFi connections are more prone to fluctuation in quality and can more easily drop.
- Cellular (3G/4G/LTE) connections can be very unreliable. It is strongly recommended to use a hardwired ethernet connection or a WiFi connection over a cellular connection unless you’re using one of the newly launched phones. But the type of connection is only one factor. For every type of connection, it is important to conduct bandwidth tests ahead of time to know you have sufficient bandwidth to stream.
- It is important to use a connection which is not shared with many other users. For example, when streaming from a typical corporate office or event venue, the amount of bandwidth available for your stream may be inconsistent depending on the number of other users on the same network.
