It’s now eight months later and neither the advertisers nor SBS seem to care–it’s still going on.

Freezing once transmission commences an ad then flicks of the app and returns to normal programming

For the last two nights SBS on demand starts up OK, but during the first 20-seconds of the advertisement it cuts out and returns to last watched TV program. Samsung TV, current version running. Frustrating. Any suggestions?

Buffering especially during ads and can freeze for 10 minutes and more. Will ditch Sbs-on-demand if this continues.
Also how can I pause, continue from where I left off etc?
Netflix so user friendly.

Having the same problem. When an ad plays all of a sudden it drops out. Getting fed up specially when I have to rewatch the ad that did the damage!

SBS on Demand just hangs on Samsung smart TV over the last few days. I am not sure what may be blocking contents as I can see ABC I-view and Prime TV which are streaming services. One thing I notice is the in the TV settings the Broadcasting Tab is greyed and I cannot access these. SO I turned the power off and restarted and the Broadcasting tab is ok and editable. But as soon as I try SBS on Demand is goes grey again. As before I can use other streaming services.

We also have the same problem. Advertisements are meant to promote a companies product. I would have thought that the companies paying for product advertising would be either complaining bitterly or not paying for their ads as this freezing effect is having the exact opposite to what the companies want from their advertising. Interesting is that the SBS promo advertisements DON’T freeze.
