Netflix has begun streaming HDR content

Netflix now supports high dynamic range content for Marco Polo, more shows and movies to come

Netflix has begun rolling out high dynamic range (HDR) content, meaning millions more shades of colour and added brightness levels for more realistic images in your favourite shows and movies.

To take advantage of it, you'll need an "Ultra HD Premium" TV (a few current Sony TVs fit the bill; some say OLED will be great for it), a premium-priced Netflix account (£8.99 or about $12.99), and a 25 megabits per second internet connection or better.

For now, just Marco Polo season one supports HDR, but more content will come, including Daredevil (thanks to a collaboration with LG).
