App issues using Apple tv

For the past week or so the spectrum app has been acting weird, it lags to the point the picture freezes but you can hear what is being said. When you switch between channels many of them are slow to load and you see the buffering symbol. I have checked to make sure the Apple device is up to date, as well as the spectrum app. I have reset my router and modem but that has not fixed the issue. Any other things I can try, or is it a spectrum app issue? Thank you.

    Hi and welcome!

    Next steps would be to restart the Apple TV as well as delete and reinstall the Spectrum TV App. After that, please try reconnecting the network connection in settings. If you have both 2.4g & 5g networks available on your WiFi, try switching to the other network. If the issue continues, please let us know and include any error messages you are seeing.

    Thanks!

    Hello,

    I tried all of the steps you mentioned however neither of them worked. A few channels are freezing and are taking time to load. We have out internet through Spectrum and the speed is at about 350mbps

    No error message, and its not a few specific channels. ESPN 2 was the latest one. You can hear what is being said but the picture is frozen.

    Does the same thing happen on a different device, such as a smartphone or a tablet?
