Hulu brings back 4K streaming to Apple TV and Chromecast Ultra

Hulu has reportedly launched a new Live Guide indicating which live TV shows are available to watch on the streaming service at this moment and also what’s coming up in the next two weeks.

The Live Guide works like a conventional TV guide, showing the occasions and length of the shows accessible on Hulu+ Live TV. The Live TV service gives users a chance to stream channels like ABC, Fox, NBC and CNN through the web as a component of their Hulu bundle.

According to Hulu, its 4K content streams at an average of 16Mbps, compared to 6Mbps for 1080p or 3Mbps for 720p. If you’re dealing with home internet data caps, that might be good to keep in mind.

Members will probably be able to stream Hulu Originals, for example, The Handmaid’s Tale, Catch-22, and Castle Rock — in 4K. Hulu’s 4K UHD streams at 16 megabits for every second, so usrs who wish to exploit this should have a genuinely strong internet connection.

Hulu’s 4K streaming supports Standard Dynamic Range, not HDR10 or Dolby Vision, so users may notice a decrease in contrast and color depth compared to other 4K content.

Numerous subscribers have earlier complained about both the limited availability of 4K titles, as well as the fact that it is as of now limited to two devices only. In comparison, Netflix has more than 600 titles in 4K and Amazon Prime offers all unique and original content and a couple of movies in 4K also.

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.
