Ads Play Fine, Show Goes Black on STARZ Channel

I just bought my 4k Onn. brand TV with the Roku OS. This is the second time I tried to watch a show on the Starz channel. The ad before the show plays fine, but when the show goes to start the screen is black. No sound or anything. I can hit Pause and see that the show is progressing, but I'm not seeing or hearing anything. Then if I hit Replay, it will bring up Captions for the replay period but still no sound or picture.

I've watched this show on this TV before with no problem.

Bizarre. You can try Settings/System/System restart

But it sounds more like a temporary problem with Starz

You can highlite the Channel in Home press Star* and send feedback

to let them know.
