Amazon brings 4K HDR streaming to Europe

25 Aug 2015 | Rasmus Larsen |

Amazon launched 4K HDR (high dynamic range) streaming on its Instant Video service in the US a few months ago. HDR is now also available on the streaming service in the UK, Germany, and Austria.

Amazon currently only offers one original series in HDR, the next step in picture quality after 4K Ultra HD. Mozart in the Jungle is the first series ever to be available HDR, followed by Red Oaks very soon.

- “HDR provides a truly stunning visual experience and we’re excited that our original series, Mozart in the Jungle and the pilot episode of Red Oaks are the first titles to be made available in the unmatched picture quality,” said Jay Marine, VP Amazon Instant Video EU.

To enjoy Amazon’s HDR streaming you need one of Samsung’s SUHD TVs (JS9500, JS9100, JS9000 & JS8500). The company recently started producing original TV series and movies and has also promised to bring the service to more TVs soon. You do not need to pay more for 4K HDR if you already subscribe to Amazon Instant Video.

Netflix has promised to launch HDR-quality streaming this year but it has yet to make good on its promise.

- “It’s been a great year for Mozart in the Jungle. Now, having the first season available for fans in an upgraded visual experience is exciting – the enhanced quality makes every scene look even better and we hope it’s something that our viewers really enjoy,” said Roman Coppola, writer and director of Mozart in the Jungle.
