I've had a monthly subscription since Gem started. Relatively inexpensive and I watch a lot of CBC, so worth it to me.

I pay the $4.99 for News Network on Gem as I don't have cable, and this is not a complaint, but has anyone else noticed buffering and longer time getting to an HD feed on NN since it was made free to all? Guess a lot of Canadians are taking advantage of this during the pandemic.

I can't say what NN was like before it was made free but I usually bring it up a couple times a day now using Firefox on my PC and it always starts to stream at 720p within 1-2 seconds after I hit play.

This is on my Nvidia Shield(s) and they are connected via ethernet. Only seems to happen in the evening when the National is on, get the spinning circle of buffer sometimes during the feed. Not a big deal and again not complaining. Before it was made free it was flawless. Guessing their servers are getting hit pretty hard right now.
