It looks like 4K will soon become the new standard, which is why we are starting to see more 4K monitors and TV sets arrive at cheaper prices. Owning a 4K monitor or TV will no longer cost you a fortune.
With 4K TVs, it also means that our content needs to scale up as well, and if you subscribe to Hulu, the streaming platform has announced that they have started to stream some of their shows and movies in 4K. Those of you with 4K sets should love this news.
Hulu says, “With your Hulu subscription, you get access to our library of the best TV, Hulu Originals, hit movies, and more, as well as HD and 4K Ultra HD streams when available.” The first batch of shows that Hulu will be streaming in 4K includes their own original shows, as well as 20 James Bond films, so if you’re a Bond fan, you’ll be able to enjoy 20 Bond films in 4k. All 4K titles are encoded using the HEVC codec which will improve the efficiency and quality of all resolutions, so even if you are watching on a Full HD display, there should be some improvement. Good move Hulu.
