Hulu today said the live service is also available now on all 2018 Samsung Tizen Smart TVs, and the Roku Streaming Stick 3500X and Roku 2 (4210X). Hulu Live was previously added to several other Roku devices.
“If you watch Hulu on any of these LG, Samsung or Roku devices, you’ll be able to subscribe to Hulu with Live TV to gain access to live and on-demand programming from over 50 top channels, including the newest addition to our channel lineup, The CW, and take advantage of personalized sports experiences,” Richard Irving, Hulu’s vice president for product, said in a company blog.
Hulu Live (and its SVOD service) is also on Apple TV (4th generation), Amazon Fire TV devices, Xbox One, iOS and Android mobile devices, Nintendo Switch and Chromecast.
The live service will debut season two of its Emmy-winning drama, The Handmaid’s Tale (pictured above), on April 25.

And Hulu live buffers and freezes like crazy. I had it for three months and that was 2 months too many.
Not working on 2017 LG OLED tv as of 2/4/19
I have 2 LG OLED, 4K Smart TV’s, Hulu Live is available on 1 of them but not the other, only regular Hulu. I have updated the app several times to no avail. Very frustrating!!! In order to to watch Hulu Live on that TV a 65″, I use my AppleTV which is also frustrating because the remote sucks!!! I can also watch Hulu Live with my Firestick, but the picture quality is not very good. The Firestick Bought says it is 4K…. But not even close on a 4K LG OLED TV. I do not want to watch a poor quality on a TV I bought specifically for the incredible picture! My 55″ LG OLED, 4K, Smart TV works perfectly with Hulu Live! Just puzzling…
