Netflix update adds HDR support for Windows 10 devices

Netflix has announced support for HDR streaming on Windows 10 platform. The feature will work on both Microsoft Edge browser and Netflix app on Windows 10.


The company wrote in a blog post on Medium, "With HDR enabled, fans can immerse themselves in the delicious colors of Chef’s Table, the terrifying depths of the Upside Down in Stranger Things 2, and enjoy the upcoming Netflix film Bright starring Will Smith. And this is just the beginning! Today, we have over 200 hours of HDR entertainment, and in 2018 even more HDR PCs will enter the market and support the growing number of Netflix originals."

However, there is a catch. To access the new feature, you need you need the four-person plan to access HDR content. Also, just like 4K, you need to use Microsoft Edge or the Netflix app to view HDR content. These will only show up as HDR if you are connected to an HDR display. Apart from that, you also need an Intel 7th generation or newer Core processor or an NVIDIA 900 or 1000 series graphics card.

Netflix acknowledged, "In the PC world, it is still early days for premium video features like 4K and HDR. As engineers, we look forward to bringing these features and more to additional browser platforms."
