Hulu Beefs Up Its 4K Ultra HD Content Selection With James Bond Action And Other Content
Stephan Jukic – December 2, 2016
The Hulu streaming media service, which is available on a wide range of 4K UHD and HDR TVs as well as media platforms and gaming consoles like the Xbox One S and the PS4 Pro has added in a selection of new remastered movie content in 4K. Fans of the James Bond films should be particularly pleased by what’s coming since most of the new selections consist of a whole pile of classic Bond films.
While the Hulu streaming service for 4K content is available on many devices of the types mentioned above, the new 4K entertainment options will only be coming to the version of the Hulu app which is available with the Xbox One S and the PlayStation 4 Pro. In the Hulu app on these devices, the streaming selection of content consists of and addition of 20 classic Bond films in full, ultra-sharp 4K ultra HD resolution and along with this, Hulu original programming like 11.22.63 (based on the Stephen King novel), “The Path” and “Chance” in 4K UHD.
Hulu users and 4K TV owners (not to mention James Bond franchise fans) who want to access these new content offerings will have to have own either an Xbox One S or a PlayStation 4 Pro gaming console as well as also needing to have a broadband connection that’s fast enough to handle Hulu’s 4K streams. This means at least 13Mbps of connectivity for the content from this app.
The new offerings from Hulu still place the streaming service well behind 4K content “giants” like Netflix and Amazon Prime Instant video in terms of entertainment selection but the Bond movies a nice and partly nostalgic new addition to the 4K internet content landscape.
Hulu is still catching up to its rivals and we have no doubt that their 4K movie and programming offerings will grow steadily in 2017. The fact that the company produces its own original series in ultra HD resolution with HDR is a good sign of a serious commitment to 4K TV entertainment.
