Roku devices with latest OS 12 software to watch Hulu Live

I would like to watch Hulu live but only the latest Roku devices will work with the latest OS system of 12 or higher, I believe. Which devices have this OS system? I know all 4K type rokus have the older OS system that does not work.

Re: Roku devices with latest OS 12 software to watch Hulu Live


Any current Roku model in the current product line is compatible with Hulu.

Hulu says it wrote the current version of its Roku channel app to be compatible with the following Roku models, running Roku operating software version 11 or higher.   Older Roku models not on this list are no longer supported by Hulu. If your older Roku model is not on this list, you'll need to replace it with a supported model in order to receive Hulu.

Presumably, newer models not yet listed by Hulu will also work.

You can check your Roku model and model number via Roku menu path Settings > System > About. (This information is current as of August 22, 2023. For updates, see the source link below.)

Roku 2 (4210X)
Roku 3
Roku Streaming Stick (3600X, 3800X), Stick+, 4K, 4K+
Roku Express, Express+, 4K, 4K+
Roku Premiere, Premiere+
Roku Ultra, Ultra LT
Roku Smart Speaker
Roku TV, 2K, 4K, 8K


Note that, although it currently runs Roku 11.5, Hulu no longer supports the discontinued Roku 4 (4400X), which uses a different chip set than any other Roku.

Re: Roku devices with latest OS 12 software to watch Hulu Live

I think I need more clarification on this. Listed is model 3920x which is a roku premier device. I have that device and I'm unable to watch Hulu Live. Is there a reason for this? Is there a different model that will allow Hulu Live?
