All 2016 Samsung 4K TVs are now receiving an update which brings YouTube HDR support. The video streaming service announced HDR back in November, although only the ChromeCast Ultra supported the format at launch.

At the launch of HDR, YouTube created a playlist with just four videos supporting the high dynamic range video, and it still stands at just four. This means that while Samsung TVs are now able to take advantage of the richer colours and deeper blacks afforded by HDR, it might not be easy to locate any.

YouTube has become a hot bed of 4K content since its debut on the platform, so it’s likely that as more people gain access to the high dynamic range footage, creators will begin uploading videos supporting it.

For now those who own a 2016 Samsung 4K TV can fetch the update and see what all the fuss is about.
