    Cannot watch any show on SBSonDemand right now. It is stuck on “loading an ad…” but no ad loads and no show comes up. 🙁

  • Richard

    Just purchased a Samsung qled tv and SBS on demand is freezing on every add break.
    Rebooted modem (NBN) deleted and reinstalled add but to no avail.
    I had Telstra TV up until now on an older Samsung and no problems.
    I have Samsung printers, monitors, phones and 3 Tv’s.
    I will try support but reading the blogs may have to return this one?

  • Gerard

    It is very frustrating to wait for over 10 minutes for all the 4 ads that keep freezing up in between the films to upload & the next segment. Even tried to follow the instructions given by the internet of how to ” stop ads on SBS on demand’- No luck there, either. Would nod pass the 4th instruction- STOP.

    This new SBS on demand update is absolutely dreadful.The screen blacks out for 30 seconds between adds of which there are always 4. This is the worst catch up tv channel out.

    When watching programs the recording reverts back to the beginning.
    Any suggestions anyone?

  • Michael

    When the ads come on in some programs eg next of kin, the video locks/freezes.

  • Tony Fox

    Why does the picture over scan immediately after the first commercial break on sbs demand? The first segment is always perfect and the second over scanned?

  • lynn Mitchell

    Why does sbs on demand constsntly buffer making it unwarchable _we pay for sbs thru our taxes and expect better than this…not good enough

  • Margie O’Riordan

    I’m streaming Berlin Station and it keeps dropping out – so frequent it is not worth watching. Not a problem with any other service ABC iview, Netflix, Apple TV etc. I do have a samsung telly and I know at the beginning of 2017 there were SBS/Samsung issues but these were fixed. So frustrating because I live sbs shows!

    Constant buffering problems. When the adverts come on it locks-up altogether.

    We’re using WiFi from computer via Apple TV connected to TV by MDMI

  • Patrick Irwin

    The adverts seem to be the cause of the trouble. We’re getting 13Mbps. Should be enough.

    Has SBS stopped working on Desktops using XP or Windows 7 ? It worked brilliantly VERY recently but today the pages load but the videos do not. I am using the latest versions of Firefox and Chrome

  • Jamie

    Live streams are not working at the moment, especially the sports ones.

  • Randy Quaid

    Cant get the On Demand to load properly? Keep getting bounced out of the site with ‘Website can’t be displayed’. Why the hell do they keep ‘updating’ a website that worked perfectly well to begin with?

  • Vicky

    Is The Raid movie playing on for anyone on SBS On Demand? It seems to be very slow for me with a few jumps.
