Checked with my provider and they say their systems are fine, it has to be Amazon fire stick. Will be watching a program and then the screen goes blank and jumps over to another app or it will show a box talking about entering a code for the fire stick remote. Will try to find a telephone number and hopefully speak with a “live” person to straighten this mess out.
