Roku express judder Netflix & prime

Hi. Ive noticed that the express judders/ skips frames with content on Netflix and prime. I’ve tried on different tvs to eliminate however it is common on all. This is using the latest firmware.

I’m now using the roku 3 and it doesn’t skip/ drop frames at all, interestingly.
Is this something to do with the different chipsets used? How they handle 25fps possibly?

Programmes I have noticed the skipping on the express are...
The crown
Planet earth

Amazon prime:
