Hulu’s Live TV Streaming Service Comes to Samsung Smart TVs


Today Hulu announced that their new Hulu UI and Live TV service will start rolling out to 2017 Samsung Smart TVs.

“Hulu users who watch on these Samsung Smart TVs will be automatically upgraded to the new Hulu experience and can start enjoying the new, highly personalized UI the next time they fire up their Hulu. You can begin taking advantage of creating up to six profiles, including Kids Profiles, ensuring that each member of the family has the most tailored, personal lineups complete with the most current and relevant content for them to watch at any given moment.” Richard Irving, VP of Product at Hulu said in a statement sent to Cord Cutters News.

This adds Samsung Smart TVs to a growing list of supported devices for Hulu’s live TV streaming service including Apple TV (4th gen.), Amazon Fire TV devices, Roku devices, Xbox One, iOS and Android mobile devices, Nintendo Switch and Chromecast. Hulu did add that they plan to continue to rollout support to more devices soon.

    I don’t know if it still holds true or not with their newer TV’s (I have an older Samsung), but I wished that Samsung didn’t have such proprietary platform and used more of an Android based system like Fire does. Then this way users could download and use not only the latest apps like Hulu, but also the various streaming apps like Sling and such. Samsung is too damn locked down of a platform with apps they decide to offer or include, so instead of really using Samsung, I just either use my Roku or Fire devices.

      And their systems are underpowered and slow and non upgradable. That’s the beauty of a stick or small box.

        Agreed. This is why smart tv’s are pointless. I bought a 55″ Samsung 4k tv last black Friday. And now 1 year later it’s outdated and won’t support Hulu live. This is why streaming boxes will never go away.

        On a side note, where the heck is Android TV support, Hulu? You won’t be getting my money until you support my Shield TV and Nexus Player. There are more Shield TV owners out there than 2017 Samsung TV owners.

    I am confused. I see all the live TV streaming services coming online. Do I really need them if I watch everything recorded? If I don’t need a live TV streaming service should I more so look at the specific shows I watch and just see if they are available on Hulu the day after they premiere on network/cable TV networks?
