ESPN on Sling TV sound quality

I'm having issues with sound quality of ESPN shows and games when viewed via Sling TV/Roku. Its like a static or distortion when the the host or guest are speaking. The problem is also during Monday night football. What's strange commercials have no issues and sound clear.

I have no problems with any other Sling channels. The problem is with both of my set ups, different equipment and model Rokus. Both 5.1.

Am I the only one with this problem?

I love this HD stuff!

I've had nothing but problems over the years with streaming ESPN. If I watched it within Sling or Youtube TV, audio was not great, some times drop out and lip sync issues. When watching on the ESPN app, the audio was always at least a second off from the lips. I sent several tickets to ESPN, but they don't seem able or willing to fix the problem.

Sound on the ESPN/Roku app is much better. Tonight the video was actually pretty good too.

I love this HD stuff!

Picked up a Roku Ultra on Balck Friday, ESPN static sound gone. My grandkids love the fish tank screen saver.
