I am currently using your code and my smart TV that is 4 years old stopped accessing any of its smart services. so whitelisting the following list helped:

Not sure if all are needed or if I need more but I was only trying to start Youtube and this least seemed to do the job.

I had to whitelist for the TV to pass the network status checks, was showing as not connected prior to that.

Is the updates issue still here? ... I mean should I disable this black list just to check a TV update?

I am not using this list, however at least one of the domains on this list was required in order to do initial setup of smart features on my new Samsung S32AM702UN. This domain was found in 3 of my lists and after whitelisting it, I was able to complete setup and update my device.

  • SAMSUNG 32-inch Class LED Smart FHD TV 1080P (UN32N5300AFXZA, 2018 Model)

Also, if disabled, the TV retries it every few seconds, 24/7, whether Hulu is on or not.

Incidentally, using not this gist, but Perflyst and Dandelion Sprout's Smart-TV Blocklists, on this TV Netflix works fine but for Amazon Prime to work on the same TV, was required.

For the Samsung tv to believe it is connected to the internet I had to add this to the whitelist:
