Troubleshooting

You’re having video playback problems? Binge-watching came to a screeching halt? No worries, we’ll help you get through it.

Some tips:

First, we’ll need to see if there’s something up with your connection and/or your player and we can’t do that unless you PLAY. First, play another iflix tv show or movie on your laptop. If that works, see if you can still play a video when you connect to a different network. And if that works, try streaming other videos and see how that pans out. Have you been keeping up with the latest version of iflix? Be sure that your app has been updated to the latest version, that might just work out all the kinks.

If all else fails, give our specialists a holler at support+MY@iflix.com. They’re going to need your sign-in email and screenshots of your “About” page in the “My Account” menu. Plus, go ahead and send them the make and model of your device too. Never hurts to be specific!
