The channel keeps buffering

I can watch Netflix, Hulu, YoutubeTV, and don’t ever have a problem buffering or freezing. No matter what I watch on the Roku app, movies will load, but have to buffer after playing 2 minutes of a movie, documentaries, anything that is on the Roku app. Why does this do this?? I have no other problem with any other app on my TV so why is this an issue with your app?? There are some great movies on your app but very annoyed with not being able to watch something.

Re: The channel keeps buffering

This buffering problem just started last month ( October 2020). It happens throughout the entire movie. Buffering happens no matter what app I'm using, Tubi, Hulu, Vudu..It's very frustrating.. I've done all the basic stuff.. What's going on? What's the solution?

Re: The channel keeps buffering

Unfortunately is does sound like not enough bandwidth from your ISP.

I'll tell you there is nothing like having a ISP dedicated to internet and nothing else.

I have an Ultra and this and use Ethernet only. I NEVER HAVE PROBLEMS.

its kinda fun. I dont mean to demean what everybody else might have

I just want you to know....
