Hulu’s apps can finally stream in 1080p on new Nvidia Shield TV set-top-boxes and Sony Bravia TVs.
Users first noticed the change in the’app & device info’ page in the Hulu app. After updating, the new Max video resolution is’1920 X 1080′.
Gizmodo says it was able to confirm that at least the Nvidia shield from 2019 and BRAVIA TVs received the bump on March 23. The change has n’t been reflected in Hulu’s support pages, which were last updated in February.
For the newer Chromecast with Google TV, it’s not clear when 1080p Hulu support was added, or if it launched with it. I was able to check on my own Chromecast’s Hulu app and it does currently support 1080p.
Hulu’s likely out-of-date list includes the 5th generation Apple TV, the Chromecast Ultra, Amazon’s Fire TV and Fire TV stick.
