The IPTV buffering fire stick video above will show you what you need to do for the Firestick device. But let’s think about some other solution on how to fix IPTV Buffering.
How to Stop Buffering on Firestick: Other Things to Think About
Here are some IPTV buffering Fire Stick ideas to start with:
Run a speed test to check your Internet connection speed. You’ll be surprised when thinking you’re getting enough speed for your device and really aren’t. For IPTV services, I always recommend having 2-3 times more of what the IPTV service recommends. In fact, 100 Mbps or more would be ideal which gives you more than enough.
There are some free speed test app downloads you can find inside your app store. Download one of them and run a test to see how much Internet connection speed your Firestick is getting. If you’re getting under 30 Mbps, this may be the cause even though it was said to be enough.
When you run a speed test and you think you should have a lot more download speed (Mbps), contact your ISP and have them run a test on their end. Your ISP such as Comcast, Verizon, AT&T, etc.
If there is more than one device connected to the IPTV service or more people in their homes using the same ISP as you, this can be the source of your IPTV buffering issue. Also, reset your modem/router box at home once a month.
Use Ethernet (Wire) Connection
To enhance more speed, you should think about using an Ethernet Cable. You can buy an Amazon Ethernet Cable Adapter for the Fire TV or Firestick. I haven’t checked for other devices but there should be other adaptors for those devices as well I would think.
I am no longer using a Wifi connection on my main TV in my living room which is LG smart TV. The Amazon Firestick power cord and Ethernet cable are connected to one end of the adapter. The other end connects to the Firestick which connects directly into my LG smart TV.
My ISP (Internet Service Provider) and I remember correctly I’m paying for over 200 Mbsp. Now once have everything set up with the adapter, you should run a speed test. You might want to run a speed test and write down your download and upload results so that you can compare them, before and after you connected the adapter.
I did not install the Analitis Speed Test app inside my Firestick because it’s for WiFi testing. Instead, I suggest installing the app called, ‘Internet Speed Test‘ with red print in a white box background. I ran the speed test and got 145.2 Mbps download speed and around 25 Mbps upload speed.
My speed increased 4-5 times more than what I had when using a WiFi connection. This is how you can decrease or eliminate buffering if you are experiencing it. Watch the video below…

When figuring out how to fix IPTV buffering issues start with the easiest steps first. Remember, there are several Buffering Issues Firestick things to look at:
- ISP (Internet Service Provider)

I put the IPTV service provider last on purpose because you need to look at them last. If you want a solution on how to stop buffering on firestick, don’t focus on the IPTV provider first.
IPTV Buffering with VPN
Some claimed they resolved the IPTV buffering with a VPN service. I use a VPN from time to time but I don’t have any on-going buffering issues so I really don’t know. This is something you can test on your own if you want. A channel may experience some initial buffering for a short while then stop.
IPTV Channels Buffering
If you experience buffering from the same IPTV channel(s) and none of the others, then you might want to contact the IPTV service support people. If all the channels are buffering, I’m more inclined to think the buffering issue is on your end. At that rate, I suggest watching the video above to locate the issue.
Another thing you could do to fix IPTV buffering and see whether or not the problem stems from your device or not. Sign up for another IPTV service. You might want to sign to one using a different app. There are free trials you can enter into. Visit Our Top 10 IPTV Comparision Chart Here to find one.
How to Avoid IPTV Buffering
You can avoid IPTV buffering by not installing too many apps on your device. Turning off some functions can also help. The video above will take you through some functions to turn off.
Make sure you connect your TV and modem/router via Ethernet cable for faster speed. Reset your modem/router once a month. These are some of the simplest things you can do to avoid buffering issues.
You can compare IPTV services by trying out another one on your device. You should also think about using a different device to see if a buffering issue occurs.
