This is awesome for Samsung owners. If true HDR10, I don't see how they can feasibly offer it to other owners though, at leastl, in the near future. Samsung has to be paying for some of the costs.

Nice. I can't seem to find the list of content anywhere though. I'm sure it'll be out soon enough

Reading on the news linked I would assume it would have to be the same HDR content Amazon currently offers in Dolby Vision. I love my LG OLED C6P so I'm happy with having the better HDR with Dolby Vision. I just wish a lot more companies would support Dolby Vision. Test out Bosch S2. Looked great in DV.

I have a Samsung and Lg 4k tv both with hdr and most shows on amazon in 4k have always ran in hdr , so what is the difference now ? are they just adding more shows to the line up or deciding to announce this now bc hdr has been a thing on amazon for quite some time.

The announcement is that they're offering the shows in HDR10+ for the first time (vs regular HDR10). HDR10+ is more feature equal to Dolby Vision.

This is a good overview:

Ty for the article , it helped . For others - " 1) Better picture quality

It should make HDR picture quality better. The HDR10 industry standard only provides a display with a single luminance guide value from each HDR title that has to apply across that title's entire running time.

With HDR10+, content creators can use an extra layer of data to add updated luminance information wherever they want to – potentially scene by scene, or even frame by frame. Having this extra data to work with should help TVs deliver a more consistently impressive HDR picture. Cue HDR10+'s second raison d'etre…"

No. HDR10+ is free to any manufacturer to use (Samsung developed it internally, but it's part of the open source HDR10 specs). I believe their deal with Amazon means that only the app on Amazon's smart TVs will have the support for it initially, but I wouldn't expect that to last long as Amazon will want to roll it out across all their app platforms.

Fair question. Personally I watched slickdeals for a while to find my Samsung tv, so it feels like the perfect place to hear about this. Peace

I'm talking about bandwidth costs. If it's true HDR10 in 4k, the size is going to be much larger than anything streamed before.

Amazon already streams in 4k/HDR10. They have for awhile. This is just adding HDR10+, which isn't a substantial increase in bandwidth
