so ill be watching an anime and it will just stop. like its been paused or what not. i uninstalled and re downloaded it. tried changing the Ethernet cable, plugged directly into the modem, and bought a new router(ours was like 6 years old) and the new router seemed to fix it for a bit. but its doing it again. so i had a friends use it on their ps3 and it did the same thing.

is anyone else having this issue and if so how did you fix it.

What exactly do you mean by "stop?" By stop, that could mean many things:

-The anime freezes like it's buffering, and never continues?
-The anime stops suddenly and tries to continue to the next episode?
-The anime freezes, but you can still traverse through the app's menus?

The app itself is very buggy, with sudden buffering failures and frame rate slowdowns, which are all a real pain in my side. If you can't get through a single episode, then your case is worse. Maybe your router or connection has some bandwidth restrictions. You could always try to dedicate a portion of your internet connection to be used exclusively by your PS3, but I really don't know if that would help. You could always consider trying a wired internet connection if your signal's not that strong. Some college campuses sell long ethernet cords for low prices. If your friends' apps work properly at their own homes on their own connections and consoles but not at your house, then it might be your internet service provider. Maybe you could consult them about the problem.
