When using the Spectrum app on my Samsung TV to watch Dodgers baseball, Spectrum ads often repeat for up to 15 minutes before returning to the game in progress causing a large portion of innings to be missed. This does not occur when the ads are not Spectrum ads nor does it happen when watching Dodgers games via the Spectrum app on iOS.
Exiting the app and restarting it stops the ads from repeating and goes back to the live game but only solves the issue until at least 2 back to back Spectrum ads are played again.
I apologize for the issues with the Spectrum TV app on your Samsung TV. Have you tried to uninstall and reinstall the app on the TV yet?
