The Roku Channel ads freeze on Android

Lots of posts about this when replaying with Roku devices, but nothing about replay on Chrome with an Android device.

Roku Channel ads freeze and will play for 2-3 seconds only if I press the recents button twice. As you can imagine with 3 ads over 2 minutes long, this process is TEDIOUS!!

I don't have any ad blocking turned on. This happens on any wifi I try to use. It makes Roku Channel WORTHLESS! Once I get to the actual show.... It NEVER LAGS OR FREEZES!!
