Amazon PrimeDid you recently pick up a new TV with Dolby Vision HDR? Amazon may be your best source for HDR videos.

“Amazon Video provides customers with HDR content today, and we’re thrilled to work with LG to extend our premium offering to include a Dolby Vision enhanced HDR experience on LG SUPER UHD TVs. We can’t wait for our customers to have even more ways to enjoy a premium movie and TV viewing experience,” said Jim Freeman, vice president of digital video at Amazon.

You may be asking yourself what HDR? Although it may not be well-known now, soon HDR may be as commonplace as HD TVs are. In short HDR adds an additional layer of detail to your HD TV to give it a more dynamic and refined look compared to just plain HD. Colors will stand out and motion will look smoother.

The great news is all of this additional detail should come with no noticeable change in bandwidth usage or impact on your data cap.

The first titles Amazon subscribers will find in HDR from Dolby Vision are Bosh, Transparent, and Mozart in the Jungle. Other titles are expected to be added shortly.
