What are the system requirements?

You can watch on PCs running Windows 7+, Intel-based Macs running macOS10.12+. You will need a broadband or fibre internet connection - dial up will not work. We recommend using the latest version of the following browsers: Google Chrome, Firefox, Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer, Safari, or Opera. Internet Explorer on Windows 7 is no longer supported.

I can’t stream any of the content, what’s going on?

Check your minimum system requirements above. We recommend that you update to the latest version of your browser.
We use adaptive bitrate streaming which means the streaming quality will automatically adjust based on your internet speed. For High Definition (HD) streaming we recommend VDSL, cable or fibre connections as we cannot guarantee consistent HD streaming on ADSL.


Why does video playback stall or not play smoothly?

Confirm that you’re using the latest version of one of the recommended browsers. Then try refreshing your browser. If your internet connection is poor or inconsistent you may experience problems during playback.
