    Good morning! Welcome to the Spectrum Community.

    Can you give us a bit more information. Are you watching through the Spectrum TV app or website or are you having trouble with the channel through a cable box?


    If you are having trouble through the Spectrum App or website what device are you using? Is that device hardwired or wireless? Or as another option are you watching the channel app directly from the channel themselves?

    I'm watching it by app, I have an ARRIS router, no cable box.

    What type of device are you using the app on? Are you wireless or hardwired to your Arris modem/router?


    Can you tell us a little bit more about your home network. Do you have any hardwired devices? Have you taken any steps like powercycling the modem?


    What speeds are you currently seeing?

    I have this issue also. Only Fox New blurs, buffers and and constantly goes offline. CNN and other channels do not experience this issue. The issue is more apparent when streaming via internet browser vs apple TV, but the problem appears to be specific to the Fox News channel itself.

    Speed test shows 270MB + download speeds. Only one channels is impacted (I have not tried Fox Business News).
