Netflix will add over 150 hours of HDR & Dolby Vision content this year

19 Apr 2016 | Rasmus Larsen |

Netflix is excited about high dynamic range (HDR). So excited that the company plans to debut more than 150 hours of content in HDR10 and Dolby Vision by year’s end. A list of upcoming shows has also been announced.

HDR offers “better pixels”

As first reported by FlatpanelsHD, Netflix began streaming in the HDR10 and Dolby Vision formats two weeks ago. The company is now ready to talk publicly about its plans.

- ”At Netflix, pushing the boundaries on video quality is one of our passions. We’re particularly excited about High Dynamic Range - or HDR. While 4k offers more pixels, HDR offers better pixels that have greater depth, and on HDR screens you get brighter highlights, more detail in dark scenes, and a wider color range that more closely matches the real world. The new HDR technology looks great, and it will keep getting better. It is more true to life than anything you've ever seen on a TV,” said Neil Hunt, Chief Product Officer at Netflix.

Marco Polo in HDR

Netflix will add over 100 hours of HDR content by August and more than 150 hours of HDR is expected to be live by the end of the year. Neil Hunt says that Netflix will make it a priority to expand the catalog at an aggressive pace. Many of Netflix’s future original series and movies will be shot in HDR. Currently only the Marco Polo series is available to stream in HDR.

The following shows are coming in both HDR10 and Dolby Vision soon:
  • A Series of Unfortunate Events
  • Bloodline
  • Chef’s Table
  • Hibana
  • Knights of Sidonia
  • Marvel’s Daredevil
  • Marvel’s Iron Fist
  • Marvel’s Jessica Jones
  • Marvel’s Luke Cage
  • Marvel’s The Defenders
  • The Do-Over
  • The Ridiculous Six

    To experience Netflix’s HDR you need a TV with HDR or Dolby Vision support, Netflix’s most expensive 4-screen plan, and a fast internet connection (25 Mb/s or faster).
