Hulu Quietly Adds 4K Streaming

There are pros and cons to all of the myriad streaming services now available, but of all the missing features of the most popular services, none are more baffling than the lack of 4K streaming on Hulu.

With that in mind, you might expect Hulu to celebrate the arrival of the feature once it finally does return, but instead, as AppleInsider spotted on Friday, the reveal appears to have occurred as a tweet from the Hulu Support account in response to a dissatisfied user.

Hulu has brought back 4K streaming after nixing the feature past year. Support for additional devices will likely be added in the near future but for now, it's these devices or nothing at all.

Bottom line: 4K Ultra HD programming is now available only on the Chromecast Ultra and Apple TV (5th gen or later). That compares with 6 Mbps for 1080p streams and 3 Mbps for 720p streams. And to its Hulu + Live TV service, which is now limited to 720p/60fps HD. We'll keep an ear to the ground for more on Hulu's plans for 4K, so stay tuned. Hulu notes that its original programming falls in this category but didn't specify what else might also stream in 4K.

To access the Live TV Guide while watching Hulu, hover over the icon of three lines in the bottom left corner of the player bar.
