The cause may be the high latency that is normal for satellite internet, coupled with network congestion during prime time.  You may want to turn off  or pause the Video Data Saver, which may or may not help.  


If you got satellite internet to watch TV, you may want to consider going with satellite TV, which works differently than satellite internet and produces virtually no issues, and has no data limitations.  Satellite internet is not ideal for streaming. 


Good morning fondlady,


Welcome to the community! It's been a while since we last heard from you, so we will close this thread. Hopefully maratsade's suggestion helped. Also, I'd consider looking into whether this is TV related, especially if it's a Roku TV: Netflix Freezing Every Time on Roku TV
