Netflix on PC is about to get a major update as Netflix has taken to their blog to announce that Netflix now supports HDR on Windows 10. The update designed for the Edge browser and the Netflix app will be available to Netflix premium customers, and there is already 200 hours of HDR content available.

Those that have older generation CPU are not cut out just yet, if you have decided to upgrade your graphics card to anything above NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1050, Netflix HDR will be also be supported.


"We are thrilled to announce the addition of High Dynamic Range (HDR) support on Windows 10 for both the Edge browser and the Netflix app. With this update, Netflix members who have a supported device and a premium plan can enjoy amazing Netflix movies and shows in HDR."


Netflix finishes the blog post by saying that future features such as 4K and HDR will be coming to more addition browser platforms, "In the PC world, it is still early days for premium video features like 4K and HDR. As engineers, we look forward to bringing these features and more to additional browser platforms."
