Our Pick

Chromecast Ultra

For whatever you want to stream.

The Chromecast Ultra is the only Chromecast with enough guts to handle 4K streams, so if you're watching high-res movies this is the one for you. Even if you don't care about 4K content, the included Ethernet adapter will make streaming easier than relying on your Wi-Fi.

If you want a no-hassle streaming experience, a Chromecast is for you. You can use your phone for controls, and be able to get all your favorite streaming services up on the big screen, including Hulu.

Another streaming box to consider

Hulu will work on any device you have, from your smartphone to your laptop to your game console. If you want to get a dedicated streaming box, we think the Roku Ultra is a great choice.

Roku Ultra ($89 at Amazon)

Hulu will work on plenty of devices, but we like the Roku Ultra's remote the best.

Hulu is available on any Roku device, but we think the Roku Ultra is one of the best. It'll support 4K HDR playback, so it's the perfect companion for your new television.
