KENS5 News Constant Crashing

Have a new Roku Ultra for about a month.  Initially no problems and great improvement over old Roku.  A regularly watched channel- San Antonio KENS5 Eyewitness News drops about 5 seconds after being selected and starts to set up.   This has been recurring for ten days, on and off.  The channel has yet to load and remains unreachable.  I removed it from my Roku channels and then re-added.  No change.  Constant crash.  Ideas?

Re: KENS5 News Constant Crashing

After removing a channel, best practice is to restart your Roku to clear its memory before reinstalling the channel. Did you do this?

Restart via Settings > System > System restart (for Roku TVs: Settings > System > Power > System restart)
