Netflix is proud to announce that people can now watch many of its popular TV shows and movies in High Dynamic Range (HDR). Support is available on Windows 10 via the Netflix app itself or by using the Edge browser.

Bear in mind, you will need to own an HDR device in order to see the new picture quality. New expensive phones/tablets and 4K TVs usually support the HDR format. Not many 1080p TV sets utilize HDR.

You don't have to worry about the lack of shows because Netflix says it has now added over 200 hours worth of HDR content this week.

This includes shows like 'Chef's Table', 'Stranger Things' and the new movie called 'Bright' starring Will Smith.

2017 is just the tip of the iceberg for HDR because Netflix says more PCs will support it in 2018.

Netflix says HDR as well as 4K is still in its early days, but the formats are sure to be adopted more as we head into the future.

4K and HDR picture quality is slowly penetrating the market. We've seen this in the video game industry already with the release of both the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X consoles in the last year.

HDR is something you have to look for yourself because trying to see it on a normal monitor/screen will not work.

You could ask for a demonstration if you want to go out and see it at an electronics retail store.

I've seen both 4K and HDR for myself on PS4 Pro and Xbox One X and the differences are stunning. It's worth the upgrade if you have the money to invest on new hardware.
