Why does Paramount Plus buffer so much?
Paramount will buffer so much when you try and stream content over a poor internet connection. Certain programs and shows on the app will require a lot more bandwidth then others.

Paramount requires at least 4Mbps to stream without any buffering issues, however, the app will need more if the video is of larger content.
When Paramount buffers, you may experience a Black screen. In order for you to stop your online video service from buffering so much, you will need to refresh your internet connection.
Sometimes, your device can be the issue if your Paramount app is outdated, or, it cannot keep a secure internet connection.
