Check if you are getting enough speed for internet streaming. Especially for streaming video content, it is really important.

If you find that the speed is slow, fix your internet connection before playing the show again.

Fix 3: Switch the device that you are playing on

Sometimes, the device that you are playing on might be the problem. This frequently happens when you have not cleared the device’s memory or updated the device.

Try to use the same account on another device to play the same show that you were playing when you received the error code.

This might solve your issue if it was device-related.

Fix 4: Check the Now TV servers

When the Now TV servers are down, this might cause a problem with the content library on the platform.

Certain shows might be unavailable or the entire platform might become unavailable for a while.

You can check the server status on any down detector tool online. If the server is experiencing downtime, you can only wait for the server to go back up. There is nothing to fix on your end.
