Being returned to Sling TV Guide after 20-30 sec, watch CNN, MSNBC, Hallmark

When I haven’t watched Sling for a while, like starting in the am, select CNN or MSNBC, It auto goes back to the sling TV Channel Guide.  Been happening since end of June. Think I found a workaround for when you start sling for the day.  It’s kind of like musical chairs on the stream. Instead of going right to popular channels like CNN or MSNBC or Hallmark, which mostly all users are “sitting on”, go to a less used channel, “empty seat”, like Euronews or France tv.  Watch it for a couple of mins then go to whatever and try watching that whatever channel. It’s like you were admitted to the stream.  Sounds like a bandwidth problem on Sling.

Otherwise, verify your Roku's internet download speed is sufficient:  Settings/Network/Check connection
