Is my wireless router fast enough for streaming CinemaNow movies?

If you have a CinemaNow enabled device that can view and download content via your wireless router, it's important to know that the type of wireless connection you have will have a big impact on playback and accessibility to the CinemaNow.

For the best performance, we recommend that you have a 802.11n connection which has the greatest indoor range and bandwidth in megabits (Mbit) per second (Mbit/s). One megabit = 0.125 megabytes.

Since your device will most likely be placed in your living room and away from your router, the range of the 802.11n wireless protocol is best suited to ensure maximum bandwidth with maximum distance, however many customers have reported success with 802.11g. If you are unsure what protocol your router is, you can usually find the model number on the bottom and then look it up on the manufacturer's website.
