Can I use ROKU on a Samsung UN55JU6500F

Can I use ROKU on a Samsung UN55JU6500F?

The Samsung UN55JU6500F is an older model, purchased around 2017. The specs say it's a 4K UHD device. I don't know exactly what ROKU device I want to purchase. I just want to "cut the Cable TV cord" (pun intended). 

TIA for your help and suggestions.

Thanks for the inquiry.

If your Samsung TV has an HDMI input, then you will be able to use Roku with your TV.

Thanks for your reply.

Yes, my TV does have an HDMI cable.

Can you help me decide which ROKU product to get?

I'm currently using a Mohu indoor, wall-attached antenna. With ROKU, I mainly want to view: News programs {CNN FOX MSNBC}; reruns of vintage series like {BlueBloods, Law and Order, etc}; occasional sports programs{BigTenNetwork}. I'd like to continue to get the local channels that I'm getting with the Mohu. I don't pay a recurring payment on the Mohu, so I suppose I can simply keep using it for local channels if necessary, but it would more convenient to get those channels through ROKU. Very infrequently I'd want to get a sports program that isn't carried by BigTenNetwork. Can I get a specific game offered by say, ESPN, through ROKU? Of course, I'd expect extra over-and-above any amount I would otherwise be paying for ROKU.

TIA for your additional suggestions.

The descriptioin for Roku Express says "Stream free TV, live news, sports, music, movies, and more." Does "Free TV" mean programs that I current get using my indoor antenna (Mohu)? If so, then how would I watch a sport program for a station that isn't receivable with tne Mohu?

Thanks.
