How to find 4K HDR content on Rakuten TV

Rakuten TV is a video-on-demand (VOD) service with a huge library of films and TV shows that you can subscribe, rent or purchase in 4K HDR.

HDR, otherwise known as High Dynamic Range, offers for better contrast and brightness levels. A TV with HDR can display a wider range of ‘dynamic’ colours for brighter whites, deeper blacks and so on.

HDR-ready TVs now pretty mainstream, with the technology filtering down to cheaper sets (although they can’t go as bright as more expensive sets). And major streaming services such as Amazon, Netflix, Disney Plus and Apple TV Plus support HDR in one form or another, whether it’s HDR10, Dolby Vision HDR or HDR10+.

Rakuten TV supports both Dolby Vision and HDR10+, but its support for HDR is not as conclusive as it may seem at first. Let’s take a look at how to find 4K HDR content on Rakuten TV.


How to find 4K HDR content on Rakuten TV

As noted beforehand, Rakuten TV supports Dolby Vision and HDR10+. However, implementation is split across different TV brands. Dolby Vision content is exclusively tied to LG Smart TVs, while HDR10+ is only available on Samsung sets. Every other TV brand makes do with standard HDR10.

To watch 4K HDR content on Rakuten TV, you’ll need a TV that has the app. Rakuten TV is compatible with the aforementioned LG (2016 onwards) and Samsung Smart TVs (2015 onwards), as well as Panasonic (2018 onwards), Hisense (selected 2016 to 2018 models), Philips (2019 onwards) and selected Sony TVs (XG95/AG9/ZG9).

After that, the next step is finding the 4K content. Unlike other services, this is relatively easy. Just look for the UHD banner on the Rakuten homepage, and it’ll take you to the 4K catalogue.

If you’re looking to rent/purchase UHD content on the service, this is done by choosing the UHD option on the checkout page. This option only appears on UHD compatible tellies. Price varies from title to title.
