This week Hulu once again added 4K streaming after dropping it back in 2018. Now you can stream a collection of Hulu originals like The Handmaid’s Tale in 4K from Hulu on the Apple TV 4K or the Chromecast Ultra. (Hopefully more devices like Roku and the Fire TV will be added soon.)
There are also speed requirements for Hulu’s 4K streaming. Here are the speeds Hulu says you need in order to stream at different resolutions:
- Standard Definition (SD): 1.5 Mbps
- High Definition (HD) 720p: 3 Mbps
- High Definition (HD) 1080p: 6 Mbps
- 4K Ultra HD: 16 Mbps
Here is how Hulu describers its 4K programming:
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. HD programming can be watched on most supported devices with the latest Hulu app. 4K Ultra HD programming is currently available on:
- Apple TV (5th generation or later)
- Chromecast Ultra
