Hulu Brings Back 4K Streaming

First and foremost, the company has launched an interactive guide for its Live TV subscribers. For starters, only Hulu originals can be streamed in 4K, and you can only do that on two supported devices: Apple TV (5th gen or later) or Google Chromecast Ultra. Hulu's Live TV guide works just like any other interactive guide you've ever used, showing you the broadcast schedule for channels that are included in your subscription.

Hulu lags badly behind Netflix and Amazon Prime Video when it comes to 4K streaming. If you're dealing with home internet data caps, that might be good to keep in mind.

Now, 4K is back, but only for Hulu Originals programs (like The Handmaid's Tale, Harlots and Catch-22).

When Hulu ended support for 4K content a year ago, it said it was "working on re-enabling support for 4K content as soon as possible".

It does help, but only with some Hulu content, and only on a very limited range of devices at the moment: The Hulu Support account on Twitter links to a Hulu Help site that offers more details.

Hulu has reintroduced 4K streaming as an option for select devices after quietly dropping support on all devices a little over a year ago.

However, parent organization Disney will make a much greater and progressively far reaching push into 4K HDR when it dispatches Disney+ in the not so distant future, promising top tier introduction for its best-in-class presentation of motion pictures, including those from Marvel.
