Buffering on locol broacast channels

Starting about 1 month ago local broadcast channels only on Spectrum TV app have been buffering frequently during the show. The show picks where it left off after buffering. I'm not missing anything but it's Irritating. I've called Spectrum several times. They have tried different things each time and had me replace the router. No difference. I'm not experiencing this problem while watching on my phone using the wifi. Any suggestions?
