Feature Request: HULU 4k and 5.1 Support on Roku Devices

Fri Jul 12, 2019 10:21 am

Would be nice if Roku and HULU could work together to provide 4K Video and 5.1 Audio support on Roku capable devices and Roku capable TV's. Can someone from the Roku team push this request to the development team? 

If the supported devices list below is accurate from HULU, the only way to get 4K Video and 5.1 Audio is to use a Chromecast device. Seems logical that the most popular streaming device might want to join both of those lists. Please.  :D

From HULU Support pages: ... uage=en_US
4K Ultra HD programming is currently available on:
  • Apple TV (5th generation or later)
  • Chromecast Ultra ... uage=en_US
HULU with 5.1 Surround Sound
While Hulu’s collection of 5.1 supported content and devices continues to grow, at this time, it’s limited to a selection of Hulu streaming library shows and movies (which includes all Hulu Originals), on the compatible devices listed below.
  • Chromecast*
  • Fire TV (3rd generation and Cube) and Fire TV Stick 4K
  • LG TV (WebOS 3.0 and above)
  • Nintendo Switch
  • PlayStation 3 (all models)
  • PlayStation 4 (all models)
  • Samsung TV (select models)
  • VIZIO SmartCast TVs
  • Xbox One (all models)
TCL-TV Roku 55P605 (4K HDR & DV) | VIZIO SmartCast SB3651‑E6 Soundbar
TCL-TV Roku 43S425 (4K HDR) | TCL-TV Roku 32S301 (720p)
