I'm still getting terrible download speeds on CU+ with live viewing - ShowMax via the Explora works perfectly.
I have a 100Mbps fibre line and on ShowMax, watchibg in HD, I have over 4 minutes buffered after 30 seconds. On CU+ it is 8 to 10 seconds and within 15 seconds there is no buffer left and the program pauses.
I'm with M-Web as ISP but the fibre line is provided by Telkom fibre.
