Netflix users can already access HDR content on the streaming service, with the first videos going live late last week, but the company has now revealed just how much content will be available in 2016.
Supporting both HDR:10 and Dolby Vision, Netflix is planning to go big with HDR in 2016. In fact over 150 hours of content will be available in HDR by the end of 2016, with over 100 hours of that set to be available by August.
Currently the only show available to stream in HDR, both in HDR:10 and Dolby Vision, is the first season of Netflix’s original series Marco Polo. Eventually Netflix will migrate even more original series to the format, with Bloodline, Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Chef’s Table all set to get an HDR makeover.
It’s not only TV shows that will be available in HDR on Netflix however, as the company also plans to make Adam Sandler’s The Ridiculous Six movie available in the format. It will also add Sandler’s upcoming film The Do-Over.
Unfortunately, all the content currently announced to be receiving the HDR makeover all constitute as Netflix Originals. Third-party content does not appear to be coming anytime soon in HDR.
The following are coming to Netflix in HDR:
• A Series of Unfortunate Events
• Chef’s Table
• Knights of Sidonia
• Marvel’s Daredevil
• Marvel’s Iron Fist
• Marvel’s Jessica Jones
• Marvel’s Luke Cage
• Marvel’s The Defenders
• The Do-Over
