Cracking sound when playing content on Hulu and MAX channel

I don’t have a smart tv, simply an old Roku attached to my tv. I’ve noticed the speakers keep sounding like they’re blowing out. My tv is older, so I was convinced it was the tv, but I realized if I switch from Hulu or max where it happened over to YouTube the sound is just fine. Anyone had something similar happen?
