Hulu continues the slow rollout of its updated app and support for the company’s live TV service today with the unlikely addition of the Xbox 360, a console that turns 12 years old this November.

The Xbox 360 joins the existing list of Apple TV, Xbox One, Fire TV, Fire Stick, iOS, Android, and Chromecast devices that support the new interface and live TV beta. Noticeably missing from that list is the PlayStation 4, which makes sense, since Sony has its own live TV service, and Roku, which is weirdly absent given the popularity of the set-top boxes and the fact that you can find a Roku channel for almost anything at this point.

Still, if you’ve been waiting to use the new (and by many accounts, bad) Hulu interface or the live TV service and haven’t upgraded to a newer console, now you can. Hulu’s live TV service costs $39.99 per month for access to over 50 channels of live television and standard Hulu; a regular Hulu subscription starts at $7.99 per month.
