How to find 4K HDR content on Netflix and Prime Video

Netflix and Amazon Prime Video add new 4K HDR content each month, but it’s a bugger to find High Dynamic Range content on either streaming service. This list will help you track of every film, TV series and comedy special available to watch in glorious HDR.

HDR stands for High Dynamic Range, and it helps content to take advantage of a wider colour range, greater contrast and brighter highlights for an image that pops off the screen.

With HDR TVs becoming the norm even budget sets capable of decent HDR, the number of video streaming services that support HDR are increasing with Prime Video, Netflix Rakuten TV, Apple TV Plus and Disney Plus locking horns in the battle for subscriber’s money.

HDR content comes in either the industry standard HDR10 or the more advanced Dolby Vision HDR and HDR10+. Prime Video sits in the corner of HDR10+ with a sprinkling of titles in Dolby Vision). Netflix, on the other hand, is a big backer of Dolby Vision.

As we mentioned earlier, finding 4K HDR content is not always easy. Here’s how to find HDR content on Netflix and Prime Video.


How to find 4K HDR content on Netflix

To find 4K HDR content on Netflix you’ll need a 4K TV and/or a 4K HDR capable device that supports Netflix. For the best picture quality, devices need to be compatible with HDR10 and Dolby Vision HDR. Netflix produces a fair chunk of its Original content in 4K Dolby Vision HDR, so a TV that supports that would be needed to these films and shows at their best.

For those with a 4K Blu-ray player it needs to be connected to a HDMI port that supports HDCP 2.2 or later. Netflix recommends an internet connection of 25Mbps with streaming quality set to High.

You also need to be on Netflix’s Ultra HD Premium plan (£13.99/month). With it you can watch on four screens at once, as well as downloading on four devices.

The next step is finding the HDR content. Netflix puts a HDR or Dolby Vision logo next to compatible titles and while there isn’t a dedicated HDR section, there is a row of Ultra HD content. Not everything that’s 4K is in HDR, but it’s the easiest way of finding content in 4K HDR.

Well, apart from this list, that is. For a list of all the movies, limited series, TV shows, comedy stand-ups and documentaries in 4K HDR, scroll down.

How to find 4K HDR content on Amazon Prime Video

Bosch on Amazon Prime Video

Amazon beat Netflix to the punch with 4K HDR content, but finding it is even trickier.

Related: How to cancel Amazon Prime

This list focuses on content available in Prime Video streaming and not titles that you can buy or rent. To play 4K HDR, Amazon recommends an internet speed of at least 15Mbps.

Amazon shows an HDR logo next to selected titles on compatible TVs. Well, it does on some devices… on the Fire TV Cube it lists 4K content as just UHD, which can be irritating.

Prime Video has content in both HDR10+ and Dolby Vision, but there’s much, much more of the former. With new TVs also support HDR10+ Adaptive, Prime Video offers the biggest library of HDR10+ anywhere.

Like Netflix there’s no specific HDR category. There is a row of UHD content but it’s fond of disappearing and often buried below a lot other content. Like Netflix, not all 4K content is in HDR and Prime Video can sometimes be a little weird with which version it chooses to be on the platform. For instance, Blade Runner 2049 is available but it’s not there in HDR10.

So in order to find HDR titles you’ll need to search through the vast amount on offer. In a weird quirk of signposting, HDR10 can also be tagged as HDR10+ content as your app does not differentiate between the two.
