You do not need a smart TV to access Nortex TV. You only need to have a recommended device attached to your TV. A recommended device is one that we are confident in the features, responsiveness, presentation, and usability of the Nortex TV app on that hardware. Other devices may have access to and can play Nortex TV but may not be as feature-rich or as responsive experience as a recommended device. Note: If you choose to watch Nortex TV on a device that isn’t recommended, your viewing experience could be unsatisfactory.

Nortex TV is an adaptive bitrate meaning that it should be able to adjust to the speed available to operate. Nevertheless, the more devices connected to your Wi-fi, the less speed there is to go around to each device. Therefore, if you continually have buffering issues, you most likely need more bandwidth.
