Why my SonyLiv app is not working on TV?

It can be solved if you disconnect the data connection and then again connect it, it will start working again. The net issue gets resolved this way.
If the connection is disturbed then you can also switch the net source. If you are using one Wi-Fi and the application is not working properly, then you can log off from that wifi and get connected with another wifi connection. If the previous connection is faulty then after changing it you can find the programs running on the SonyLiv app smoothly.
Why does SonyLiv keep buffering?
When the TV or the Android phone or PC is kept far away from the router then it can slow down the speed of the internet which will result in buffering of the SonyLiv application. Try changing the position of the device or keep the router near the device so the connection does not get hampered.
The wireless signal of the router sometimes gets broken as the weather gets cloudy or too many things are kept near the router. So keep the router in a clutter-free space and make sure that the TV set or the device on which you are watching the SonyLiv application is kept near the router.
Also, you can think of using a wired router with the device so the connection is more secure and continuous.

Why SonyLiv app is not working on Samsung Smart TV?

Sometimes when the recent update is not installed in your device you may find that the application is not working properly and showing glitches. After getting the latest update installed you will find the application running seamlessly.
Why does my SonyLiv app keep stopping?
As we have already mentioned, you can find the internet problem slowing down the speed of the application. When the internet connection is slow, it does not keep up with the speed of the program running on the application.
The streaming program speed does not match the internet connection speed and thus, the consumers face buffering issues. The router can also be a slow one which will not be able to cater to the device at an equal speed and as a result, it will not show the program running smoothly.
Sometimes it can even stop the application altogether, which means the application needs to be force stopped by the device itself. You have to fix the internet connection issue and then restart the application.
