What is an On Demand?An On Demand allows you to either
Stream content across the internet in a program viewer at your pace and schedule
Download the video directly to your computer for offline viewing
If you stream the program via the Launch Viewer button the On Demand can be:
Rewatched (as many times as you desire)
Watched in sections on multiple days/devices
In short, you have full control on whether you wish to watch the On Demand in one sitting or whether you want to watch sections on multiple days. The Program Viewer will remember your location in the video so you can watch at work and resume where you left off at home!
If you choose to download the On Demand, the product can be viewed on any device that has a media player to play back the file.

If your speed test results for Download are 0.30Mbps or lower you may want to contact your Internet Service Provider (ISP - such as Comcast, Spectrum, AT&T) to troubleshoot.

WIRED CONNECTION VS WIFI CONNECTION
While WiFi routers have come a long way, a wireless connection is susceptible to more connection issues than a wired connection. Distance from the wireless router, walls, other wireless signals can all impact your connection. If you run into any performance issues in viewing a streaming program, we recommend switching to a wired connection. Please note that you typically will need to disable your wireless connection in order to confirm you are on a wired connection.
We recommend a wired Internet connect with at least 1Mbps of download speed for the best viewing experience

CONSISTENT VIDEO PLAYBACK ISSUE
STEP #1: LOCK ONTO THE LEAST DEMANDING VIDEO STREAM
You may be having intermittent issues with your Internet connection. This solution will lock you into the lowest available video stream that may smooth out your video playback experience.
Hover your mouse over the video player
Hover your mouse over the HD text at the bottom right of your video player
Select the lowest number listed to lock your video onto the least demanding video stream.
If video playback issues continue - move on to Step #2 below
PLEASE NOTE: If you are on a Mac device and/or using Safari, the HD button is not present. In order to lower the stream speed, you will need to switch to the Google Chrome browser.
STEP #2: SWITCH TO AN ALTERNATE INTERNET BROWSER
Your Internet cache in your browser may need to be cleaned/cleared out. If you are unsure about how to clear your browser cache, an alternate, easier and quicker option is to try switching to a different Internet browser to continue viewing the program. If you're on Microsoft Edge - try switching to view the program on the Google Chrome browser. Other popular browsers such as Opera and Firefox are compliant with program playback. Following this step resolves the vast majority of playback issues.
Internet Explorer is no longer a supported web browser. If you are attempting to view the video content using Internet Explorer, you will need to switch to another browser such as Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome or Firefox.
If any video playback issue persists, please contact Support for further troubleshooting.
