Why is my Roku freezing or reloading during a movie?

Rokus are great devices; we love them. However, like any method of streaming media, occasionally problems can occur. For example, we have found that 1st generation Rokus (Roku 1) can exhibit both longer load times for movies and buffering issues if the internet connection bandwidth drops. If you're experiencing issues with a film freezing up and/or reloading, we recommend first checking you network connection.
