The HDR upgrade was originally planned for the X930C and X940C, but now Sony has announced it for the X850C, X900C and X910C. If you've got one of those 4K-capable TVs from Sony, you'll soon be able to enjoy better colors, greater contrast and more details in both highlights and shadows. Sony knows this update is mostly thrown away without the right content, so they've got a plan for that.

If you happen to buy one of these HDR-powered 4K TVs, "for a limited time" Sony will offer $100 in HDR-enabled Sony movies from Amazing Video. These include The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and Fury. Amazon's original shows will also be played back in HDR, so while there's not much in the form of HDR content, there's always the new Ultra HD Blu-ray players.
