Hulu App discontinued on my TV, where is the updated version?

Question

Hello all,

I have a LG TV from 2015, Model Number - 60UF7700

WebOS version - 04.05.85

The Hulu app that I had running on the TV was I guess the classic app. Hulu plus that wasn't able to do Live TV, and it was just discontinued on my TV.

Alright cool, it was a crappy version of Hulu app anyways.

But what am I missing here?

Hulu's website says all LG TV's with WebOS 3.5 and higher can get the new app, but I can't find it in the LG content store. Only TV's that are not supported with WebOS 3.0 are the UH series. But I have 4.0 and mine is this UF series.

I know the TV is 4 years old. and I work at best buy, I know the life span of these things. But I just don't see why I wouldn't be able to get the app, I can't imagine the TV not being able handle it. Like is it just designed not to work with the hardware of the TV?

i'm confused, seeing as Hulu says that it's supported on 3.5 and higher. 

anyone have thoughts on this?

Thanks

2015 LG TVs, i.e. UF series have WebOS 2.0. UH are from 2016 and have WebOS 3.0. WebOS 3.5 is introduced in 2017.
You probably have firmware version 4.x.

Oh you are right, I looked into a little deeper on my settings. WebOS 2.2.1-2147. I just assumed that WebOS was being updated. Is there anyway to root this and install an updated WebOS on it? Or am I just out of luck on the older TV?

Edit: Never mind, I just googled it. Thanks for the help!

    • Disney Plus on LG webOS TVs

      I was reading a few articles on the launch of Disney Plus but they did not list any of the tvs such as LG webos or samsung tv. I hope disney plus comes out in lg tvs.  Its supposed to launch November 12th in the US for $6.99 a month or $69.99 a year. They also said there will be a $12.99-per-month trio bundle of Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+ that is coming. I'm already doing espn for $4.99, I may do the entire bundle to get hulu also, not sure, At the minimum, I am definitely going to get Disney plus

      Hi All Has anyone with a 2019 model Webos 4.5 or above got any of the Freeview IPTV channels working eg. 211,  261,  265 etc. I am trying to workout if this really is a problem affecting every TV made by LG in 2019 or just a few of us. If it is every LG tv then why are there so few people highlighting and reporting this, If it is just a few of us the maybe is is a set or batch problem. I just struggle to understand why LG would remove functionality from a tv that has more pro

      Hi All, Has anyone had a recent update of the OS on their TV to 4.7.050204 (goldilocks2-gulaga) ? The reason I ask is that the IPTV channels on my TV seem to have borked these channels as I now get "Invalid Service" floating across the screen. I'm pretty sure these channels worked before the update. I'm referring to channels such as Now 90's, Planect Knowledge, The Sports Channel Network etc. So these are NOT APPS but TV Channels showing up on the guide and still show the prog
