I stream PeacockTV, MotorTrend, NetFlix, Prime Video, and Discovery+. Streaming has always been perfect until I subscribed and installed Discovery Plus. With Discovery Plus, every few minutes I will get a video freeze for about 3 to 4 seconds, then playback resumes. This may happen once an evening, or more commonly, several times. This ONLY happens with Discovery Plus, not any of the other streaming apps. When I hit the replay button, the freeze happens again in the same exact spot, so it isn't a wifi/LAN/network interruption. I can recreate the freeze every time in the same spot when I use the replay button.
It originally started with my Roku Ultra that I purchased in 2016. I had it wired via LAN, not wifi. After I installed the Discovery Plus app I thought it was the player, so I ordered a new Roku Streaming Stick +. The problem continues on the new Roku Streaming Stick +, and ONLY with the Discovery Plus app.
I also have Fire TV devices, including a new Fire Stick 4K connected via wifi and Discovery Plus streams perfectly on these devices. Never has frozen or skipped once.
Based on all this info, it seems Roku has an issue specifically with the Discovery Plus app. Has anyone else noticed this, or have any other suggestions to try? I thought buying a new Roku device would solve it, but that was not the case. Honestly, I am glad, because there was nothing wrong with my Roky Ultra.
Thank you in advance for your time and suggestions.
