Buying Roku for older LG smart TV no longer supported by some streaming services?

I have an approximately 6 year old LG smart TV which I have used to watch streaming content on Netflix, Amazon Video, and Hulu.  I've noticed lately that both Netflix and Amazon video buffer very slowly on this particular TV, and are sometimes unwatchable.  Also, Hulu no longer supports this particular TV at all.  The TV does have an HDMI port.  I'm wondering if Roku could be a solution for me to continue to watch the streaming services to which I subscribe (Netflix, Amazon Video, and Hulu) on this TV, rather than buying a new TV.  Any advice or insight would be much appreciated.

Yes, it'll be like breathe of fresh air compared to built in TV apps, get one.
