    Well as the title suggests, since Sunday any TV live streaming I try and watch stops after about 3 min. Happens on all tv streaming services like NotFilmOn and so on.

    TV shows and film links line SPECTO or SALTS works no problem at all..

    I've reinstalled Kodi and tried both Jarvis and krypton and still get the same issue.

    Any suggestions?

    Live streaming is a toss up weather it's tv sports whatever it's a hair pulling get the hammer pain

    Right now my local station app ustvnow is worthless keeps saying credential error even though I have reset the password 5 times deleted the account 4 times like tv addons forums said nothing works or fixes it 3 minutes of working then problems

    The Android cbs app yesterday everything was right programs not available. Ccloud etc could go on forever with the examples

    And my exodus streams are bloody Chinese kung foo fighting movie time lips then the words

    For me a tecs worst nightmare it's like a pc is it hard drive, memory, software etc
    These dumb boxes is it my isp? Is it the streams? Is it the add ons so hard to diagnose 100 percent what it is I hate the unknown and unfixable

    One solution suggests right clicking on the channel and selecting play with f4mtester.
    If that doesnt work i noticed many youtube videos and threads on google addressing this problem.

    FilmOn changing to a premium service is very likely the cause. Some add-ons use(d) FilmOn streams without having the name in their title I believe. We are getting quite a few queries about this in the office.

    DroidBOX are unable to recommend different add-ons or applications to use. Any members (who aren't members of staff) have suitable replacement suggestions?

    Thanks for the info..

    Yup, this does seem to be the case. Haven't found any noteworthy replacement for FilmOn yet but will let you know if I do..

    Just glad it's not an issue with my DroidBox.
