Samsung TV gaps in streaming audio when using optical cable

When using optical cable from my Samsung TV to an LG soundbar, I frequently get gaps from one particular news service, but not from other streaming services.  I can rewind and see same gaps where their lips move with no sound, always in the same place.  If I watch with TV set to TV speaker, then the gaps don't occur.  I've tried setting input from PCM to Bitstream and get the same results.

Any ideas what causes this or how to fix it?  Could it a problem with that provider, or with my TV?  I feel like the fact that I don't hear gaps on other streaming services rules out hardware issues like a faulty cable, but I find it odd that the audio is fine for speaker, but not for the soundbar.
