Hulu has been steadily rolling out its new UI and live TV service to a whole bunch of platforms since it was first announced in May. Next up: Samsung’s smart TVs, as spotted by Multichannel.

All of Samsung’s most recent 2017 models are getting the update, which should be automatically waiting for users the next time they use the bundled Hulu app. Now, Samsung’s smart TV join the Apple TV, Xbox One, iOS, Android, Chromecast, Amazon’s Fire TV and Fire Stick, the 12-year old Xbox 360, and even the Nintendo Switch in offering the app.

The lone holdout is still, of course, Sony’s PlayStation consoles, which have been updated to the new UI. But due to Sony’s own competing PlayStation Vue over-the-top TV service, they don’t have access to Hulu’s live TV service — something that will likely remain the case for the foreseeable future.
