IS F Sport commercial freezes Viki app on Firestick

Hi... Whenever one of the 2 or 3 commercials for a car... the only English I see is IS F Sport... comes on, a spinner comes up and goes on forever.  I am watching via Amazon Firestick 4K.  the only way to resume watching is to hit the back button.  I then have to select the proper episode (sometimes hard to do, as the Firestick brings me to the episode I most recently launched, but I may have watched that and the next, or even the one after that)... watch a new set of commercials, and then resume.  Sometimes, the IS F Sport commercial comes up again right away, and I have to repeat the steps.


If there is a workaround/solution for this, please share!  If not, please check with this advertiser, their ad is not working properly at all!  Thanks!
