Help & troubleshooting for channels on your Roku device, including adding/removing channels, logging in to, authenticating, or activating a channel, channel-specific playback issues, assistance contacting channel publishers to report issues, and adjusting channel-specific settings.
It looks like other people are having an issue with streaming that they never had before. My buffering started within the last 6 weeks. I mainly use the Spectrum app. The buffering also occurs on other channels. I get over 200mbps from spectrum at all times. I have tried Ethernet and WiFi and I have buffering issues that I haven’t had before. I’ve been using my ROKU Ultra for years with no buffering.Has ROKU found an answer to this?
Welcome to the unintentionally created club. I have been experiencing more problems with my own Internet Access than ever before. Sometimes I can fix at my end. Sometimes I cannot change as I "share" access with other people both inside and out of my household.
What I learned to do is be more flexible and do my more serious Internet Activities for the wee hours of the morning. My own experience doing late night/early morning Streaming, ordering paying bills, and Web Surfing is just like it was pre-Pandemic. I just have to watch my byte usage and avoid even accidently leaving those Streaming Devices on after I stop using them-and reaching the dreaded data cap of 1 terabyte.
I feel your pain!!! I’m watching the Spectrum app also and it Keeps BUFFERING ALL THE TIME!!! I can’t believe that this ROKU company would put out a product that doesn’t work!!! I’M mad at it because it seems to know just when too BUFFER like just when something is going to happen, like the start of a NASCAR Race, Just Before a Touchdown Etc!!! They need to get this fixed ASAP or it’s time to go to something that is more Reliable like AMAZON!! Jeff
It seems like the issue was with my Powerline/Ethernet Networking system in my house. I was getting the buffering even though my Internet Broadband to my house I tested at well over 200mbps. I switched my Powerline boxes to a newer technology from a different company and - happyhappy joyjoy.
