HDR has been a standard feature of new TVs for years now, and you'd be hard-pressed to find many 4K TVs that don't support HDR. But even as Netflix, Amazon, Disney+, HBO Max, and others have rolled out HDR support for some content, Hulu hasn't. That finally changed, with a support page on Hulu's website announcing HDR support for select shows and devices.

These are the devices on which Hulu says it now offers HDR streaming:

  • Roku (HDR compatible models)
  • Fire TV, Fire TV Stick, Fire TV Cube devices (HDR compatible models with Fire OS 7 or later)
  • Apple TV 4K (Gen 5 or later)
  • Vizio (HDR compatible models)
  • Chromecast Ultra (HDR-compatible models)

Hulu says that the supported formats include HDR-10, HDR-10+, and Dolby Vision. Content that supports HDR will carry a special badge so viewers know what they're getting.
