Netflix commits to 4K and HDR, promises more than 150 hours of 4K HRD content by the end of the year.
Netflix has committed to 4K and is now doing its best to press ahead with high dynamic range (HDR). One of its original shows, Marco Polo, is the first HDR series on Netflix. The company has announced plans to add around 100 hours of HDR content by the end of August and more than 150 hours by the end of the year.
Viewers require HDR-compatbile TV and Netflix app to fully experience the technology. While high-end 4K TVs that are released this year support HDR, not all have the necessary Netflix 4k app. Among to support Netflix 4K HDR content include the brand new Panasonic and Sony 4k TVs.
Netflix HDR shows are A Series of Unfortunate Events, Chef’s Table, Bloodline, Hibana, Marco Polo, Knights of Sidonia, Marvel’s Daredevil, Marvel’s Jessica Jones, Marvel’s Iron Fist, Marvel’s Luke Cage, Marvel’s The Defenders, The Do-Over and The Ridiculous Six.
