Can't Access Syfy - Troubleshooting Instructions

If the site is UP but you cant access the page, try one of the below solutions:

Browser Related Problems

Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)

Clear the temporary cache and cookies on your browser to make sure that you have the most recent version of the web page. For instructions choose your browser :

Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

Check our help page for step-by-step instructions on how to change your DNS.

Syfy app on roku is worthless. It crashes numerous times on any show and puts you in a loop for commercials. Crashing right at the end of them and then starting you all over on them. Is syfy doing anything to fix this or is it not worth the effort.

Husband just said the heck with it and got out of Syfy, watching something else. Spent 20 minutes watching Killjoys, it crashing, and having to watch the same commercials, over and over and over. Syfy needs to fix this, channel is useless. Hulu plays just fine. They're either doing this on purpose or have complete idiots running their online division. We tried watching it on Windows PC instead last night, and that was almost as bad.

Syfy channel on Roku constantly crashing on some shows, unable to rewind or fast-forward, also will crash and replay in a loop, can't get past commercials. Husband is really ticked off! It's been this way for a few weeks now but getting worse. E-mailed Syfy tech support, they e-mailed me back a few times, still no resolution.

Trying to watch syfy now on Roku. It works but if I pause the show I'm watching for more than a hit or rewind more than twice, the app asks me to sign in to continue watching. Settings show that I am already signed in, but the app still won't let me continue until I sign in again. Also, now it freezes and I have to restart the Roku in order to continue. At one point, restarting didn't even work. I've reported the issue, but still no resolution. This is the only app that does this. Please help.

I'm currently having trouble logging onto Stardrift Empires from the Scyfy Games portal. It looks from the bar graphs that the site might be down if I'm reading it correctly for March 24th 2013. Any ideas when it will be back online or any other ideas?
