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

    • Apple TV 4K Issues with LG UJ7700 WebOS 3.5

      I'm not sure if this is an LG or Apple issue, or if I have to try a different HDMI cable (the package says it's the latest standard) but here's what I've seen so far: I have the AppleTV 4k using Dolby Vision which looks great. 1. When using the AppleTV remote to turn on the AppleTV and LG TV (using LG Simplink), sometimes the video signal is messed up – it's blurry and out of sync. Changing the input to Live TV and then back to the AppleTV fixes it. Sometimes it just works right away.
