Netflix HDR update released for LG's 2015 OLEDs

19 Aug 2016 | Rasmus Larsen |

LG and Netflix have finally made it possible to stream Netflix in HDR quality on last year’s LG OLED TVs. The update was released earlier this week and is confirmed to work on EF9500 (EF950V) and EG920V.

Netflix HDR on 2015 LG OLEDs

LG’s new 2016 OLED TVs have supported Netflix’s HDR since launch but owners of last year’s models have been patiently awaiting an update to enable the feature.

The update was released earlier this week as a free over-the-air software update. It is not entirely clear if the delay was caused by LG or Netflix but nevertheless here it is. The update has been released in the US and Europe, owners have confirmed.

FlatpanelsHD has been told by owners that it works on both the flat EF9500 (EF950V in Europe) and the curved EG920V (only available in Europe). We have yet to receive confirmation for the curved EG9600 (EG960V) but it should work on this model, too.

The update enables the 2015 LG OLED TVs to stream select TV series and movies from Netflix in the HDR10 format. Only the 2016 OLEDs support Dolby Vision that Netflix is also offering. There is not a lot of HDR content available on Netflix yet but look for ‘Marco Polo’, ‘The Do-over’ and ‘The Ridiculous 6’. The company has promised to add over 150 hours of HDR content by the end of 2016. Follow the link to see a list of series / movies.

Besides Netflix, Amazon and VUDU are offering HDR over streaming. Most UHD Blu-ray discs also come with HDR.
