My 2014 Samsung UN 65HU8700 TV wont allow me to adjust playback speed

I have PLEX on my new Roku TCL TV. When I go to watch movies Im given the option of lowered resolution so I can watch bigger files without frequent freezing. (For example, I can watch at 16mps, 8mps, 4mps, 3 ps, all the way down to 320k for super low quality. On my big curved living room tv (Main watching) a 2014 Samsung UN 65HU8700 TV wont allow me to adjust the playback speed. There just isnt an option at all. I checked my internet speed and my upload rate is 5.5mps .

Does anyone have any ideas on how to work around this? I just downloaded the APP so I konw its the most recent one.

So in summary, NEW Roko allows me to raise or lower stream rate .. my 2014 Samsung TV does not offer this option and therefore all movies freeze every 30 seconds for like 1 min while that damn thinking wheel spins.

    On the Samsung app this is called Transcoding Quality.
    For more information on how to use it please download the manual here.

    Have you checked if your answer might be in the User Manual?
