Hulu is bringing back 4K streaming for some shows and devices

14 July, 2019, 15:41 | Author: Sammy Rose

As we close in on the weekend, Hulu has rolled out a couple of features that a lot of viewers will probably really like.

As Engadget highlights, Hulu has also added a Live Guide for its live TV service, allowing users to view available programming up to two weeks in advance.

The Live Guide works like a conventional TV guide, showing the occasions and length of the shows accessible on Hulu+ Live TV.

You can also use the guide to check times for upcoming sports games and find blackout information, with additional details available by clicking on the broadcast in question within the guide. And the service notes that "while Hulu's library of HD and 4K Ultra HD supported content continues to grow, at this time, it's limited to a select list of programming, like all Hulu Originals".

Hulu says you're going to need connection speeds of around 16 Mbps to get the top quality 4K UHD streams. It's back now, but you're limited in your options when it comes to streaming in 4K.

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.

There's another Hulu feature rolling out this week as well: 4K streaming is back on fifth-generation or later Apple TVs and Chromecast Ultra devices.

That's good news for fans of The Handmaid's Tale, I guess.
