Excessive buffering watching FOX News Channel

Watching FOX News channel, exhibits excessive buffering the last 2 or 3 days.  No other channel on YouTube TV has this problem.  This problem occurs on 2 other TVs, watching the same FOX News channel. Is this a problem that is going to be fixed?

Re: Excessive buffering watching FOX News Channel

Your watching the Fox News network on YouTube TV via your Roku. No other network on YouTube TV does this. Therefore it’s not a YouTube TV, nor is it a Google or Roku issue. It’s an issue with the Fox News servers. Nothing can be done about it. Probably temporary and will be fixed within 24 hours

I'm having the same issue. Only with the FOX News channel. I'm using a ROKU Express to access YouTube TV. It's been a big problem recently... Is anyone working on a FIX ??

@wsu55  There isn’t anything to fix. This has nothing to do with Roku. Please check the link I posted

We are having the same issue at our house. All other channels on YouTube Tv are working ok but Fox News keeps buffering.

Re: Excessive buffering watching FOX News Channel

I watch on YouTube TV. This has been driving me nuts all week! Only Fox News Channel! Checked and double-checked my internet, and Roku connection. I am at least happy it's not my system. Fox needs to get this fixed! In the  meantime, Newsmax is looking better and better!
