Hulu 4K streaming comes back to Apple TV

The latest Apple TV is one of just two devices that can stream Hulu programming in 4K. Still, until recently there were none.

Watching Hulu shows in Ultra HD is a feature that was removed last year, but now it’s back for a very limited selection of shows and players, including one of Apple’s.

Limited Hulu 4K options

The streaming service admits its doesn’t have much content in high-definition formats. “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,” the company’s help center explains.

The list of original programs includes The Handmaid’s Tale, The Mindy Project, Catch-22, and others. However, most of its available content is not included.

And there are only a couple of devices that support watching these shows in 4K. One of these is the fifth-generation Apple TV 4K, released in 2017. It starts at $179. Users should ensure they are running the latest version of the Hulu app.

The sole other option is Google’s Chromecast Ultra.

Hulu first rolled out support for 4K video in 2016 but stopped offering it last year. It has once again done an about facet. Perhaps this is related to Disney’s takeover of this SVOD service in the spring. Or the imminent debut of Apple’s rival streaming service could be playing a part.
