NEW PLEX UI ON OLD TV'S?

I might asked this before without any answer...

Please tell me if the new/upcoming user interface will be released for my Samsung UE55JS9005 4K TV from 2015.

I really hope so... But I'm afraid it might not happen?

I LOVE HIFI and ICT.

    The official app is only available on model 2016 (K) and up because they run the Tizen operating system.

    Have you checked if your answer might be in the User Manual?
    My Samsung environment:

    2010 BD-C5500 Blu-Ray,
    2011 UE46D7000 LED-TV,

    2012 BD-ES6000 Blu-Ray,

    2014 UE55HU8500L UHD LED TV

    My TV should be running Tizen I THINK.

    I found and installed the Plex app normally from the official Samsung app market.

    So, it's still not possible to get the latest UI?

    I don't like the new interface.

    Graphically it is nice, but functionally it is a bit of a chore to get to what I want.

    1 HPTC (WMC & MyMovies)
    1 Samsung UE22ES5400 (Plex Client), 1 Samsung UE40F7000 (Plex Client), 1 Samsung UE43KS7500
    Plexserver running on Synology DS918+, DS2413+ and DS411+.

    You'll regret it instantly once you get it.
    @Orca's old PHT based client is one of the best plex clients available now.
    I didn't know that either until I moved to android TV ones.

    in my opinion, the best client you can dream of will be a openPHT running on a shieldTV but sadly it won't happen.

    I'll probably move to openPHT anytime soon once it's available for decent netflix+4K uhd support (yeah, it won't happen either but it seems this could be easier than plex android to be usable)
