Hulu is one of the biggest streaming platforms available, however, it lacks 4K content on its platform that its competitors in Netflix and Prime Video have in huge quantity. At some time in 2016, Hulu released 4K content on its platform, but last year, the streamer removed all the 4K content from its platform. And now, they are again adding 4K content on their service that works on Apple TV and Chromecast Ultra.
This news has been confirmed by the company on Twitter that they have brought back the ability to watch 4K content after it was removed last year. The company said that the streamers will need a connection of at least 16 Mbps to streaming content in UHD, and that’s compared to just 6 Mbps for 1080p content.
We have good news! 4K streaming was just re-released today on select devices: https://t.co/5BjUFgexXk. You'll be able to watch any of our Hulu Originals in 4K. We hope this helps! ?

As of now, only a limited number of content are available in 4K resolution on Hulu. At the moment, it’s only Hulu’s original shows such as The Handmaid’s Tale and Runaways, among others, that support 4K playback. That’s a short list compared to the competition.
Hulu is also only supporting 4K streaming on two platforms: Google’s Chromecast Ultra and the Apple TV 4K (5th generation). Hopefully, the company will expand its service to other platforms such as Roku and Android TV in the future.
