Samsung TV YouTube app's getting removed. What replaces it?

My Samsung TV's Hub update (yeah, well, that's one bit of kit Samsung does love to send updates to, always convenient when you wanna watch a show) is warning me that the YouTube app is gone by the end of June.

I think it's Flash-based somehow, so I can understand replacing it. Except only removal is mentioned, not replacement.

Anyone know what to expect there? It's a 4-5 yr old TV and that's taking out a big chunk of functionality. My expectations are low. They've already nuked their perfectly ok iOS remote control app for it and have replaced it with a completed emasculated POS that can barely adjust the volume. And it's not like they have a decent Android app either, despite fielding dozens of TV-related apps.

Any ideas? Besides not buying Sammy in the future, that is?
