Because Hulu has updated their channel app to take advantage of capabilities added to Rokus since your older Roku was released.

Roku stopped letting me use hulu

My roku decided I could no longer stream Hulu on it, and told me I must buy a new one, if I want to watch the service I pay for on my own tv
I am very frustrated and disappointed; is there any way to bypass or override this??? 

Here is a picture of the problem: Roku issue

Re: Roku stopped letting me use hulu

You've got it backwards. Hulu decided to upgrade their Roku channel to take advantage of the enhanced capabilities of more recent Roku models. Only Rokus issued 8 years ago or more are affected. If you want to complain, complain to Hulu. By all means, cancel your Hulu subscription if you wish if you're not willing to replace your outmoded unit.
