Why do Netflix movies keep stopping?


It could possibly be a slow internet connection speed. Netflix posted requirements. This is a good site to check your speed. http://www.speedtest.net/ Internet Connection Speed Recommendations Below are the Internet download speed recommendations per stream for playing movies and TV shows through Netflix.
  • 0.5 Megabits per second - Required broadband connection speed
  • 1.5 Megabits per second - Recommended broadband connection speed
  • 3.0 Megabits per second - Recommended for SD quality
  • 5.0 Megabits per second - Recommended for HD quality
  • 25 Megabits per second - Recommended for Ultra HD quality
HD Video Quality
Movies and TV shows we have available in high definition will play in 720p or better with a fast enough internet connection. To watch Netflix in HD, ensure you have a HD plan, then set your video quality setting to High in the Playback Settings for your account.
Netflix Bandwidth Usage
Higher quality video uses more bandwidth than lower-quality video. If your service provider applies a bandwidth or data cap to your Internet service, you canManage Bandwidth Usage by changing the video quality settings to Low or Medium to consume less data.

Problems streaming Netflix movies Continuously


There are a few things you can check. Mostly it is about how much demand you are using versus the service, and hardware you use, to provide it within your home.
The service level (bandwidth) is what you have purchased. This is a maximum and can go down considerably depending on time of day and who your provider is.
Do you have other users putting demand on your internet service - this may include neighbours who could be using your wireless internet if you do not have security turned on (ie password protected). Also if you have a lot of users, your wireless router may need to be upgraded to cope with the demand properly.
Is your tv wireless? This requires a good signal - if your router is far away within the house or buried behind heavy materials it may not be able to provide a 'fast enough' connection to your tv to stream your videos.
Netflix has 3 quality settings you can choose - if you have a lower internet service, the highest quality MAY be too much, especially if there are other users at the same time. Usually a 5 or 6 meg service can be at threshold for the highest quality setting depending on the 'actual' speed of your service at a given time.
To keep yourself happy while you resolve this, choose a lower quality setting on netflix - this should allow you to watch without it buffering all the time.
So what has changed since you got your tv? If the setup is all the same, then maybe you have more users. Check your security on your router. Has anything been moved? If so there is opportunity for cables to have been damages (or bad connectors) and also signal loss.
If you have a slower service, perhaps demand in your area at certain times is lowering your service enough to caused buffering issues.

How can i make it so that I can wacth movies on netflix it does not streamline it has to constanly buffer the movies


Streaming video , stopping and buffering is due to slow connection speed. HD movies involve loading a lot of data and hence take a lot of time to buffer. Switch to non-HD video mode and see if it streams without pauses. If that does not fully resolve the problem , you will need to go for a faster internet connection.

I am hooked up wireless to my ps3 but when i try to watch a movie on Netflix it only plays for 30 seconds and buffers, then plays for 30 seconds and buffers. I can put my laptop next to the ps3 and...


First restart the ps3 and try to load the movie again see if that helps or not.
If the Netflix still only loads on your ps3 but keeps on buffering this might be cause by not enough bandwidth allocated for your ps3. Try turning off your computer and all the devices that are connected the internet. Then try again.
