ROKU ULTRA (4670x) start and stop (buffering) every 5s when streaming MLS Season Pass

My ROKU Ultra (4670x) no longer supports MLS Season pass streaming. This used to work well for years. After I updated my Roku Apple TV app now it stops and restarts every ~5s, making it impossible to watch, behaving like it is buffering.  
There is plenty of capacity on internet feed (500/500 Mbps) and Ultra is connected via LAN, so not a local connectivity issue.

Also if I use my ROKU Streambar (9102R) on the same feed and internet connectivity the MLS Season pass works fine (no buffering). 


So why is this no longer  working on Roku ULTRA ? 
Seems like some HW/Compatibility issues for latest Apple TV when streaming MLS Season pass !!My Roku Ultra works fine for all other streaming apps (Directv, Netflix, Max, Prime, ....)

SW info :

AppleTv: Version 14.3 Build 50
Roku Ultra (4670x) : 13.0.0 Build 24056-46
Roku Streambar (9102R) : 12.5.5 Build 4174-95

Re: ROKU ULTRA (4670x) start and stop (buffering) every 5s when streaming MLS Season Pass

Thanks for input
Note MLS Season Pass is an option on Apple TV, so are you suggesting to to remove and reinstall Apple TV ?

Though it seems I have resolved the issue.

As after I installed a Micro SD (2 GB), I'm able to stream MLS Season Pass on AppleTV channel fine without buffering on my ROKU Ultra

Seems that by adding MicroSD this reduced (or improved) processing on Roku Ultra, seems the microSD added to RAM or somehow reduced processor load.

So for now the issue seems to be resolved.
Though strange that this suddenly occurred as worked earlier in season and all last season without microSD.

So was there a Apple TV/MLS Season pass Capacity increase or was something changed on ROKU Ultra SW lately ??
