Today Hulu started to contact subscribers who use Hulu on a VIZIO Smart TVs with VIZIO Internet Apps. According to the email beginning on August 8th, 2018 Hulu will no longer support VIZIO TVs build prior to 2013.

Here is the email that was sent out.

We are reaching out to let you know that Hulu will o longer be supporting the Hulu app on VIZIO Smart TVs with VIZIO Internet Apps starting on August 8th, 2018.

The Good News is there are other ways to Hulu!

Continue to stream your favorite shows and movies while enjoying the updated Hulu experience on any of our supported devices.

This comes a few weeks after Hulu announced they also plan to end support for older Roku models sold before 2014. Hulu has not explained why this is happening, but it looks like Hulu wants to end legacy support of the older Roku models. These devices are often over five years old and no longer run the newest Roku OS. That means an entirely separate app needs to be maintained. Hulu likely looked at the number of people still using the older Roku’s and said it was not financially worth the cost.

The good news is that even the $29.88 Roku Express will be far faster and offer more supported Channels than a Roku from 2014.
