Do you have an older Roku device that you use to watch TV via Hulu?
If so, your Hulu entertainment just might come to an abrupt halt on June 24, 2020.
According to this post from our friends at ArsTechnica, Hulu will be dropping support for Roku devices that were manufactured in 2012 and earlier on that date.
I couldn’t find a list of the specific Roku models that are set to be abandoned, but this Hulu support page lists the Roku devices that will work continue to work with Hulu after the 24th.
If you’d rather not click through to the Hulu page, here’s a list of the devices they say will still be supported (with a firmware update):
- Roku Ultra
- Roku Premiere and Premiere+
- Roku Express and Express+
- Roku 3 and 4
- Roku 2 (model 4210)
- Roku Streaming Stick (model 3500 or later)
- Roku TV
- 4k Roku TV
As with most every other company in the tech world, Hulu occasionally drops support for older devices in order to provide new features and options that those devices simply aren’t capable of handling.
Unfortunately, this round of abandonment will likely affect a LOT of people and families.
Bottom line: If your Roku device isn’t included in the above list, your Hulu service will likely stop working on June 24.
