Why am I experiencing buffering and pausing when using iPlayer on my Amazon Fire TV?
Connected TV | Under investigation
Some viewers attempting to watch BBC iPlayer on their Amazon Fire TV device are experiencing issues with playback in that it frequently pauses and buffers.
The iPlayer team are currently investigating this issue.
For now, there is a workaround for this.
Try the following:
Exit the iPlayer app by pressing back on the remote
Open iPlayer once again from the Home Screen
Select a programme or channel to watch
If your device is turned off, you may need to do the above once again.
