I've been using my ps3 a lot recently to watch shows using the app. The video is constantly stopping and going :/ it's happened over a variety of shows including the simulcasts I watch (Titan, Gargantia, and Severing Crime Edge), Blue Exorcist and others. We've tried letting it sit for 5 or so minutes and then start watching the video but even that doesn't work :/

Sometimes it's really bad and does the stop and go for most of an episode, others it does it a few times...

Let's see if changing the DNS on your PlayStation 3 helps with this.

I would try Google's DNS - 8.8.8.8 or 8.8.4.4
Or OpenDNS - 208.67.222.222 or 208.67.220.220
http://manuals.playstation.net/document/en/ps3/current/settings/connectadvance.html

Let me know if this helps!

You have some spiked times towards hop 8.
Can you also please try changing your DNS on the PS3 to see if that helps at all?

Does this constant stop and go have anything to do with the bandwidth. for example like at certain times of the day or how many people are watching a certain show at that time?

Operations hasn't said anything about this being a bandwidth problem.

It's most definitely not a bandwidth issue if its the same issue I am having (will check the DNS and see if it does anything) as we can stream two shows simultaneously on the computers, and watch both Netflix and Hulu fine, yet can't get through an opening on Crunchyroll on the PS3 without constant stopping.
