My kindle freezes up when watching Netflex. What can I do?

Trying to resist a pun of my own... :)

How fast is your wifi connection? Netflix may be trying to stream at too high a quality for your connection. I *think* there's an account setting on he Netflix web site that will allow you to limit your downloads to a lower resolution.

What router are you using? Some are not suited to streaming movies. I am using an N router and all of the movies from Netflix and Amazon stream flawlessly.

Netflex? Is that yet another useless workout app?

Yeah, it's the new "Commercial Fisherman" exercise program.

They put you to work on a commercial fishing boat in the Bering Sea for a month. Between the work load and the sea sickness, the pounds just melt off.

Rosario, I don't have a problem like that with Netflix on my Fire. It's possible that it's the strength of your signal: are you able to try it on another network, like a friend or family member's house?

There are some things you can try on your own. You can restart your Kindle Fire:

Unplug it from any power source.

Hold your power button in for thirty seconds, release it, and let it restart on its own.

You could also reset the device, but that might be too big a step at this point.

You might want to conflict Kindle Support at

You'll see a

button. I'd call them or have them call you.
