Hulu 4K streaming comes back to Apple TV

Hulu is currently behind rivals such as Netflix and iTunes when it comes to support for 4K content, but the service has now switched on 4K streaming again - for some shows and some devices.

Watching Hulu shows in Ultra HD is a feature that was removed past year, but now it's back for a very limited selection of shows and players, including one of Apple's. However, the selection is limited, as is the device support.

The 4K resolutions should be available now, so if you're a Hulu subscriber, fire up The Handmaid's Tale or Catch-22 to see all those extra pixels.

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. 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. To access the guide, simply hover over the three lines icon on the lower-left section of the player bar.

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.

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. It looks and functions just like a traditional programming guide so there shouldn't be much of a learning curve.
