Hulu’s live TV service and redesigned app are finally coming to Roku devices. The new service has been slowly rolling out for months now, and it’s launched on almost every other platform, including Apple TV, Xbox One, iOS, Android, Chromecast, Amazon’s Fire TV and Fire Stick, and even the 12-year old Xbox 360.

More devices coming soon

Roku represented one of the last major platforms left to get the live TV service and new interface, leaving just Sony as the final holdout. Tthe PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 have the new interface, but not the live service — something that will likely remain the case for a while, given that Sony has its own PS Vue over-the-top TV service. The updated app will be available on the Roku Ultra, Roku Premiere+, Roku Premiere, Roku Express, Roku Express+, Roku Streaming Stick, Roku 4, Roku 3 and Roku TVs to start, with more devices said to be getting support soon.

Hulu’s live TV service costs $39.99 per month, which gets you access to over 50 channels of live television (what channels you get depends on where you live, see Hulu’s site to find out what exactly to expect) along with standard Hulu shows and movies. In comparison, a regular Hulu subscription starts at $7.99 per month.
