Sony will enable Netflix HDR on TVs in Europe today

12 Apr 2016 | Rasmus Larsen |

Netflix pushed start on HDR streaming last week. Sony owners in the US have been able to enjoy it for a few days now and starting today Sony will roll out an update to enable Netflix’s HDR streaming for owners in Europe. It will be supported on 2015 and 2016 models.

Netflix HDR on Sony TVs

HDR (high dynamic range) is the industry latest attempt to improve the picture experience and companies like Netflix and Amazon are at the forefront. Netflix currently offers Marco Polo in HDR but it will soon release Marvel’s Daredevil, too.

Sony XD94


Sony confirms to FlatpanelsHD that a software update for its TVs in Europe will be released later today. The update will add support for Netflix’s HDR on compatible Android TVs from 2015 (X85C, S85C, X90C, X93C and X94C) and 2016 (SD85, XD85, XD93 and XD94). However, note that only the 9 series models have the hardware to reproduce HDR as intended.

The update will include:
  • Netflix HDR capability
  • HDD Recording (HDD Rec for 2015 TVs was as previously informed changed to OND due to issues in Holland, but will now be changed from OND to OTA)
  • Other general performance improvements

    Netflix is offering streaming in both of the current HDR formats; HDR10 and Dolby Vision. Sony's TVs support only HDR10.

    We are still trying to confirm details for other manufacturers’ TVs.
