Apps Hulu with Live TV screen image

Hulu adds 30-plus channels with 60fps video support

Hulu with Live TV has added support of 60 frames per second video on 33 channels for a total of over 50 channels, not including local network affiliates.

Frame rate expressed in frames per second, or fps, is the rate at which consecutive images, called frames, are refreshed on a display. At 60 fps, the refresh rate takes advantage of technology in newer televisions that read faster frames rates making images – like sports – smoother and less jagged.

The term applies equally to film and video cameras, computer graphics, and motion capture systems. For television and streaming, the standard frame rate for television in North America and Japan has been 30 fps. In parts of Europe, Africa and southeast Asia the rate is 25 fps.

The Hulu channels now supporting 60 fps are…
