Some of Hulu original episodes and movies will now be available in HDR.

Hulu is only now introducing HDR support to some of its original series and movies, despite the fact that it is 2021.

Customers may now “stream certain Hulu originals in high-dynamic range (HDR), HDR10, HDR10+, and Dolby Vision on some devices,” according to Hulu’s support page, which was discreetly updated this week. On content that supports HDR, a new HDR badge will display.

To begin, HDR content on Hulu will be available on HDR-compatible Roku models, Fire TV hardware that supports HDR, Apple TV 4K, HDR-compatible Chromecasts, and Vizio TVs with HDR. Mobile devices and consoles are noticeably absent, however Hulu is expected to increase HDR compatibility over time.

So far, the list of episodes and movies that function is very limited: according to an AVS Forum, the list consists primarily of Hulu’s high-profile shows and movies. Given that network television makes up the majority of Hulu’s programming library, adding support for HDR and 4K has been less of a priority (since broadcast TV rarely supports either specification in the US).
