Netflix has confirmed it is now streaming content in the emerging high dynamic range (HDR) format.
Starting with the Netflix Original series Marco Polo, the HDR content will be available on all compatible televisions.
“We are indeed live with HDR. It works with compatible TVs, both in HDR10 and Dolby Vision,” Netflix spokesperson Yann Lafargue confirmed.
The company is wasting no time on rolling out the feature after it announced plans to support HDR content at the end of February.
Next on the agenda appears to be the second season of the hit show Daredevil, which was recently released.
However, one thing the company won’t be doing is expanding into virtual reality content.
As we reported earlier today, CEO Reed Hastings said there’s no original VR programming in the cards.
He said: “We’re really focused on movies and TV shows and doing more of those, which you can watch in a virtual reality headset if you want to, but we think most people will watch Netflix on a smartphone or a smart TV.”
