HDR Video Streaming Coming to Amazon UK
Peter Donnell / 5 years ago
There has been a lot of talk in the last few years about what will come after HD broadcasts. 1080p is great, but it has been around for quite a while now and it’s not always the best for those with larger screen sizes. 4K is the current thrill, with new TVs, media boxes, streaming services and more cropping up almost every week to supply us with content for the new format. One of the most popular formats is certainly streaming, with the likes of Amazon and NetFlix pushing hard for us to get more 4K content, but it seems Amazon is about to one-up the competition with the release of HDR video content in the UK.
The service will be available to Prime members in the UK and follows the launch of HDR video content in the US two months ago. HDR adds a greatly increased range of colours and brightness to the picture, giving huge improvements in detail on darker sections of the image, while enhancing colours and more to provide a more vivid and lifelike image.
Of course, you’ll also need an HDR compatible display, but with many newer 4K sets already supporting the extended colour format, there should be dozens of people in the whole country who can actually enjoy this content.
If you get a chance to watch some HDR 4K content, I highly recommend it!
