Fox News App major issues

I have 3 different Roku units, and three different Internet providers over the past 2 years....keep that in mind. 

   The Fox News app is really flawed. It will suddenly pop up, "NO CONNECTION" which means I have to restart Roku. OR.....it will go into a break, and never come out of it, just locked up unless you exit and go back in and sometimes you have to restart it again. This seems to only happen on the :20 break on the hour.

    It will also come back out of a break, and play 20 seconds and then repeat it again over and over. You have to restart it again. 

   Remember.......3 different units at 3 different Internet providers so I know it ain't on my end, considering the other 30 apps I have on my unit are pretty much flawless and NEVER do stuff like this.

   One more, if it comes on and says, "Are you still watching?" When you hit the continue button, it hangs at 13% and just sits there until you exit, and possibly restart it. 

   I really don't think this is a Roku problem, I think it's a Fox News problem, but how can you even tell them anything? It would seem that the Roku people would have an avenue to tell them to overhaul the entire thing. This is the worst app I've ever seen.

Same here.  And I am logged on to Xfinity.  I have restarted, uninstalled, and reinstalled the app several times.  No show will load.

No error message - just nothing but the selection screen for days now.
