Five tips for a seamless viewing experience

Here’s how you can get the most out of your SIFA v2.020 viewing experience

  1. Check your home network. Your streaming quality might be affected if your connection is too slow, or if the load on your broadband network is too heavy.

You might want to consider taking some of these devices offline to reduce the load on your WIFI network and to optimise your internet speed.

  3. Update your browsing devices. Where possible, do check if your browsing device (desktop computer, laptop or mobile phone) has been updated with the latest operating system. Do check if your browser is also the latest version.
  4. Restart your WIFI router. If you are still facing slow speeds, do consider rebooting your WIFI router. This will often help in significantly boosting your internet speed.
  5. Clear your browser cache and cookies. If you are watching from a desktop or laptop, clearing your browser cache and cookies can help also enhance your viewing experience.
