Hulu Has Officially Started to Roll Out 60 FPS

Since Hulu launched their live TV streaming service it has been capped at 30 frames per second (FPS). This means some live sports looked a bit jerky versus at 60 FPS as it is only showing half the data.

With 60 FPS you will see a far smoother stream especially when there is fast action happening. Now Hulu has announced they are testing 60 FPS in what they are calling Phase 1 of their 60 FPS. (Hulu says they will be rolling 60 FPS out in phases.)

Here is the announcement Hulu made yesterday.

Today marks the beginning of Phase 1, and you will now be able to see the following in 60fps:

  • CNN
  • CNN International
  • HLN
  • TNT
  • TBS
  • TCM
  • TruTV
  • Cartoon Network
  • Adult Swim
  • All SHOWTIME channels
  • About half of our available FOX affiliates
  • All of our available NBC affiliates, as well as New England Channel News

*Please note that individual FOX/NBC affiliates may temporarily revert back to a 30fps version in order to bring you the most stable playback stream.

The following devices are also enabled as part of Phase 1:

  • iPhone/iPad

  • Apple TV

  • Xbox One

  • Fire TV

  • Samsung Tizen TV

  • Nintendo Switch
