Thing is with all of the complainng I do 90% of the time depending on what device I use I usually don't have issues with Netflix. I guess it is my Asperger Syndrome that I have.

When I have friends visit their phones will often give problems if they are tied into my wifi or in another case the wifi in the RV. So I'm not sure if it is really the service. I have no problem on my BD player with Amazon, VUDU or Hulu+ because it is connected via Ethernet but it will only play Netflix at 720p max so I use Chromecast for that. Problem with Chromecast is some of the apps started out working fine but so many broke it in their updates (HBO Go,Hulu+ and VUDU particularly). YouTube and Google Play Movies of course work okay too. I also watch VUDU on the BD player in HDX because they broke their Android app.

I never use YouTube for the Chromecast. The thing crashes more times than a crash test dummy.

Also when I checked the broadband for your city it said Comcast sorry did not know that uverse was available in your area.

Yeah surely if Google does not want something optimized it must be YouTube on Chromecast.

I live by myself and the only time my wifi gets used is when I am on my pc, smartphone, or streaming. So bandwidth is not an issue in my case.

Are you attempting all this streaming using WiFi only, or have you also used hard wire and you still have all these problems?
