Internet Connection Speed Recommendations
We want you to have seamless experience enjoying TVPlayer, so here are our internet download speed recommendations for playing TV programmes on TVPlayer.
- 3.0 Megabits per second - Recommended for SD quality
- 5.0 Megabits per second - Recommended for HD quality
Watching programmes in HD
You can see which channels we stream in HD here but these channels will only play as long as you have a connection speed of 5.0 megabits per second or faster.
Higher quality video uses more bandwidth than lower quality video. If your service provider applies a bandwidth or data cap to your internet service, you can manage bandwidth settings by changing the video quality settings to Low or Medium to consume less data.

Tips to improve your wireless connectivity
Move your router to a new location to improve signal strength. You'll usually see better reception throughout your home if the router is in a central location.
Move wireless devices such as cordless phones or microwave ovens away from your router. Wireless interference from these devices can create issues when you try to connect over Wi-Fi.
Elevate your router off the floor. A router on top of a bookshelf or desk will give you better reception than a router placed behind or under furniture.
