Re: Movies stops every 4 seconds

Hi @Seaglass1

Thanks for reaching out.

Does the issue only occur on a specific channel or across other channels installed on your Roku device? Are you getting an error code or message?

If you haven't tried yet, you can remove the affected channel then re-install it. To ensure the process is successful, make sure to restart your device before adding the channel back in. We would recommend doing this from the Settings menu by navigating to Settings System > System restart > Restart.

For detailed instructions, refer to this Support link: How do I resolve channel playback issues?

Let us know how it goes.

All the best,
