Amazon initially launched its first HDR content to its US subscribers on Samsung SUHD televisions back in June and just announced the UK availability of high dynamic range (HDR) content on its Amazon Prime Instant Video platform.
Starting today any Prime Instant Video subscribers can access Amazon Original series in HDR at no extra cost…so long as they have a compatible TV to watch them on.
Amazon has been offering blockbuster films, TV shows and Amazon Original series to Prime members and customers in 4K/Ultra HD over recent months. HDR brings to 4KTV screens greater contrast, brighter colours, enhanced shadow details and distinct highlights to make images appear vivid, rich and more life-like.
“HDR provides a truly stunning visual experience and we’re excited that our original series, Mozart in the Jungle and the pilot episode of Red Oaks are the first titles to be made available in the unmatched picture quality,” commented Jay Marine, VP Amazon Instant Video EU. “We can’t wait for Prime members to watch and re-watch these titles, and look forward to adding even more in HDR for all our customers to enjoy this year.”
