      Hi Judy,

      Thanks for your inquiry.

      You’ve come through to, not actually Presto.

      Just to confirm, what device are you using to access Presto? If you want to have a smooth and easy access to Presto, you may need to use a compatible device and enough internet data. Devices include mobile, tablet, laptop, PC/Mac and TV via Google Chromecast. If you need further assistance, you may reach Presto’s customer support page.
