Changing Playback Speed for foreign TV

We watch a lot of foreign shows on Netflix, Acorn, and Britbox and need to slow the playback speed down. Where is this option? We will need to go back to streaming to a laptop if we don't have this option on Roku.

Re: Changing Playback Speed for foreign TV

There isn't any kind of global setting for playback speed.  It's something each developer would have to include in the channel/app.

That is something Roku used to have with a hidden "hot key" sequence. Why would you get rid of that? People needed that. Even Chrome has an extension that allows out to change the playback speed. Please put it back and do a software rev.
