Roku on Samsung Smart TV compatibility with HULU Live TV

I have a Samsung Smart TV (older than 2016) that has a HULU app and supports basic HULU services but does NOT support HULU LIVE TV.    According to HULU, Samsung Smart TV's older than 2016 will not support HULU LIVE TV streaming.    Will a ROKU resolve this issue?    Can I watch HULU Live TV streaming on an older Samsung TV with a Roku?

Re: Roku on Samsung Smart TV compatibility with HULU Live TV


Yes. You'll find that dedicated streaming devices such as Roku provide better app support than almost all smart TV systems. The exceptions to this are smart TVs that are actually based on (have the software built in for) Roku, Google/Android TV, or Fire TV. If the smart TV's "smarts" are anything else, their overall app support is inferior.
