What’s the resolution for hayu on Apple TV?

720p is supported by the first two generations of Apple TV, so if you’re using one of these slightly antiquated models that will be the maximum resolution you’ll be able to get away with. The news gets better, however, as Apple TV devices that are 3rd generation and onwards support 1080p HD.

Be aware, though, that your viewing experience will be at the mercy of your Internet connection. You’ll also need decent Internet speeds to stream at HD. As a guide, hayu requires an internet connection speed of at least 1Mb with a recommended speed of at least 3Mb.

Subtitles and captions for hayu on Apple TV are displayed in the lower half of the screen. To save or adjust your settings, play the TV show or movie for at least five minutes and your preferences will be set. To change your actual subtitles appearance settings, you need to log into your hayu account and change them through there.
