Channels don't work, only Youtube

I can watch Youtube, but that is about the only channel that works since the update. IMDB, Amazon Prime, Paramount +, and other channels I've tried no longer work. The one I have tried the most is IMDB. That one just keeps loading and reloading the IMDB opening ad. The other's have similar problems.
