I use my Apple TV mostly to stream from Netflix, and up until recently it worked perfectly.  Now the film freezes ever minute or so and it takes another minute to start up again.  This doesn't happen when I stream directly onto my laptop.

I have had an Apple TV for over a year.  I use it mainly to stream programs from Netflix, and up until a few months ago, I had no poroblems.  Now it has become impossbile to watch a Netflix program on my TV because the film freezes every couple of minutes, or less, and seems to be downloading.  It starts again, but the same thing happens in a couple of mnutes more.  I have tried pausing the film for a few minutes to let it download, and I have even started a film, and then paused it, half an hour before starting to watch it, hoping that this would allow the entire film, or most of it, to download, but it hasn't helped.  I don't have this problem when I download directly from Netflix onto my laptop, but then I don't need Apple TV.  Of course, I'd rather watch films on my TV than on my laptop.  Any suggestions other than buying a new Apple TV after just over a year?
