Amazon Video now offers Dolby Vision HDR content

Written by Jaymin Shah

Last year, Amazon began offering 4K HDR content on its video services, and now it has expanded its support of the high quality format to include Dolby Vision, the other (and arguably better) high dynamic range format. The second season of of Amazon’s original series Bosch is now available in Dolby Vision through Amazon Prime Video, and a number of movies from Sony Pictures including The Smurfs 2, Men in Black 3, Salt,Fury, Pineapple Express, and Elysium are available for purchase through Amazon Video, the company announced today.

Netflix and Vudu already support both Dolby Vision and HDR10 (the industry name for standard HDR) so Amazon is pretty much playing catch up at this point. But for owners of Vizio’s Reference Series TV and LG’s Super UHD sets — both of which support the Dolby Vision format — the move should be a welcome addition.
