Why am I seeing buffering when watching videos?
Buffering, or a pause while loading or playing your video, is generally caused by a slow Internet connection speed to our service. Your broadband Internet connection speed can vary for many reasons that are most likely not related to the Amazon Instant Video service itself. Please check for these common issues:
Wireless Connection Strength
Devices connected to the Internet through a wireless connection may experience slow connection speeds. To improve your wireless connection, try moving your wireless access point closer to your PlayStation 3 or, if possible, connect your PlayStation 3 using a wired Ethernet connection.
Shared Internet Connections
When your PlayStation 3 is connected to the same Internet connection as other computers or devices, this can impact your connection speed and video quality. This is most likely to happen when someone in your household is downloading files, playing video games, or watching videos online.
Connection to Your Internet Service Provider
If your connection speed is a lot worse than usual, you can try resetting your broadband modem or router to ensure you have the best possible connection to your Internet Service Provider (ISP). If the unusually slow speeds continue, call your ISP to troubleshoot the problem.
