High Dynamic Range (HDR) support is a major selling point for displays these days, from televisions to smartphones, but supporting the format is just one piece of the puzzle. Getting content providers to support the device is also a key factor in letting owners actually enjoy HDR content. And now a few new devices have been added to the list of Netflix HDR support.
A trio of new devices now support Netflix HDR: Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8, LG’s V30, and the Sony Xperia XZ1.That marks two Sony and LG devices to support Netflix HDR content, with the LG G6 and Sony Xperia XZ Premium already supporting Netflix HDR.
Owners of these devices will also need to sign up for the appropriate plan to watch Netflix HDR content. Netflix’s HDR programming is part of its $12 per month plan, which also allows customers to watch on four screens at once. You’ll need to make sure the most recent version of the Netflix app is installed on your device and that “high definition” is selected in the playback options.
HDR content offers better contrast when compared to other content, including deeper blacks and brighter colors.
If you own one of the supported devices, will you fork over a bit more money to Netflix to watch the content on your mobile device?
