  1. Hello Phil. Just wondered if you knew any more about Only Murders in the Building. Interesting to see Martin Short and Steve Martin back together again only this time with Selina Gomez. Looks Hulu-bound – so maybe SoHo would be a natural home? I’ll be on the hunt in August … One further question: is Hulu 4K by default?

  2. Hey, Rosco, good to hear from you. Murders will stream here on Disney+. A date hasn’t been confirmed but should be soon after its August 31 debut on Hulu. Here’s what Hulu says about 4K streaming: “Hulu’s streaming library and live TV programming is available to stream in various high definition (HD) video qualities, like 720p, 1080p, 4K Ultra HD, and 60fps high definition (HD) video qualities. Quality will automatically adjust based on your available bandwidth, ensuring you always have the best picture quality possible for streaming.”

  3. Speaking of Disney+ I’m really looking forward to Loki from Wednesday next week. It’s apparently going to change the Marvel universe. I love Marvel 🙂
