TV shows skipping, beginning again after ads, and an increase in ads

Hello, I don't know what's going on but in the last month TV shows I'm watching on my laptop are suddenly skipping. I have all the Internet connection bars showing there is 100% connection to my computer. 

 

It isn't limited to one channel so it isn't a channel problem. Although Lifetime, which I rarely watch, is the worst. 

 

I have re-set my router. No dice. I've cleared my history cache. No dice. What else should I try? I'm really annoyed.

 

All I want to do is watch a TV show on my laptop and enjoy uninterrupted viewing while the show is on. I've pretty much given up on complaining about the looping ads and number of ads. If I'm going to sit through all of the ads, can I at least watch the show without a bunch of skipping? 

 

Also, shows are going to ads (which have increased substantially AGAIN) and then the show restarts from the beginning. So I move the placement button to the place I was before and here comes a full round of 5 minutes of ads. 

 

Thank you.

It is not your computer, browser or router. I am seeing the same problems watching Lifetime online.

 

I live in Pennsylvania, this could be very widespread depending on where you live.
