Global tv app live stream keeps buffering every few seconds since their recent update

Since Global TV updated their app, the live stream option continually freezes and buffers every few seconds, I've uninstalled and reinstalled hasn't helped, anyone else having this issue or knows a fix. Very annoying to say the least.

Re: Global tv app live stream keeps buffering every few seconds since their recent update

Hi @Mickeymouse65

Welcome to the Roku Community. 

Did you restart your Roku device before re-installing the channel? That step is crucial when performing troubleshooting. 

If you haven't tried the suggested order (remove > restart > re-install), we would recommend giving it a shot once again. We also suggest doing the restart from the Settings menu by navigating to Settings > System > Power (If you do not see a Power submenu, skip to the next step.) > System restart.

If the issue persists, we suggest reaching out to Global TV Support directly to report the issue and share your feedback about the outcome of their update on the channel. Channels on Roku are maintained by the channel developer themselves. 

Please let us know if there is anything else we can assist you with.

I am having the same issue after their recent update. Every 10 seconds or so it buffers for a second or two. Unusable. Did your issue resolve?
