I have just bought a Apple TV (3rd Gen) and find it is really slow to stream TV shows or movies. I thought this was supposed to be fast?


AppleTV 2

    I have a 130 Mbps plan that actually varies in speedtests between 30-80 Mbps down. I'm on a 2nd gen. Apple TV with an Airport Extreme connected via Ethernet.

     

    Apple TV trailers don't load right away 80% of the time. This weekend, it still has been taking about an hour start playback on a 45 minute show, making this whole thing highly unusable.

     

    I contacted my ISP, tried re-routing through different DNS servers, re-booting over and over, but I'm getting tired of it.
