Netflix starts buffering every few minutes with PERFECT connection

Hi,

While trying to watch Netflix on my Xbox One, it starts to buffer (shows the loading wheel) every few minutes during use. This is despite my connection registering as 32Mbps on the Xbox, with an open NAT.

I have no such issues using my 360 on the same network, which streams perfectly every time.

As it is, Netflix is unwatchable on my XO as pausing to load every few minutes or more. Any ideas?

Hey Bwadderz,

Sorry to hear you're having issues with Netflix.

For this particular issue, I would recommend getting in touch with Netflix Support for troubleshooting.

I have had this exact same issue, been trying to find out if there is any solution out there.  This is not a Netflix issue, I am able to stream with no issues from my laptop, desktop, mobile phone, tablet, xbox 360, but the xbox one buffers all the time.  It is so bad, at times I can't even watch anything on it.  So far so much for xbox one to be the "one" place for me to go to get all my content.

I get consistent buffering as well on my X1.  None on my PS4.  So I now watch my Netflix material on my PS4 until the X1 is fixed.

Check your detailed network statistics, your dl speed should be at least 3 mbps upload of at least 1.5 mbps and under 150 for your latency

Xbox one buffering issue; Hey guys, sad to say as of tonight (2-13-14), Netflix buffers about every 4 minutes and displays the loading wheel for at times up to a minute or so before it begins playing again. ****....Netflix works fine on xbox 360, ipad2, laptop, kindle fire, and smart tv. Hopefully xbox one just needs an update for this app.

Same problem here. I have still my XBOX 360 and I have to watch Netflix there. Which, by the way, is an AWESOME client. Much better than the Xbox1 one.

I don't understand why the client on XBOX one looks very much like the old one.

I have 30MBPS in download and everywhere else (laptop, iDevices, XBOX 360) i have no buffering and awesome quality.

I too am now joining the ranks for Netflix frustration with my XBox one.  It started getting really bad just this past week.  I did receive an update the other day hoping it would fix it but no, House of Cards kept buffering every 2-4 minutes and when I tried to watch S2 E2 it would get to 99% and stay there indefinitely.

Tried S2 E2 on my iPad and started up no problem.

This is clearly not a network issue since multiple people are experiencing the exact same symptom.

Seems to happen mostly after 8 pm for me. During the day no issues. All my other devises at the same time no issues but the xbox 1 is almost unwatchable. Definitely not Netflix or bandwidth.

To mimic what others have said, mine's the same way.  I can watch it on the 360 but one the 1 it keeps buffering every couple of minutes.  This box is turning out to be a waste.
