Hulu Android TV app- American leading Video-on-demand application has got an update from 720p to 1080p for some devices. All these changes are first noticed by Gizmodo, Android Central, and 9to5Google.
However, there is no information mentioned on the Google Play Store “Description page”. So, there might be chances that something changed on Hulu’s Server-side as well.
Now, users can stream Hulu Android TV in 1080p on new Nvidia Shield TV set-top-boxes and Sony Bravia TVs. The Users first spotted the change in the “App & Device Info” page in the Hulu app. After updating, the app lists the new max video resolution as “1920 x 1080”.
Hulu Android TV 1080p Supported devices:
However, there is still no clarity that Hulu with 1080p supported Chromecast with Google TV, which runs a skinned version of Android TV or not.
It does not seem that Hulu will specify the list of all supported stream devices along with resolution on their support site. But thanks, at least they mentioned minimum birates for each:
- Standard Definition (SD): 1.5 Mbps
- High Definition (HD) 720p: 3 Mbps
- High Definition (HD) 1080p: 6 Mbps
- 4K Ultra HD: 16 Mbps
4K devices are limited to Hulu. The devices that can stream in 4K are the 5th generation Apple TV, the Chromecast Ultra, Amazon’s Fire TV and Fire TV Stick, LG UHD TVs from 2017 onwards
That’s great! Now users who have to spend money on higher resolution displays can stream more devices on a higher resolution.
