Amazon Video brings HDR Content to Quantum Dot-enhanced Samsung TVs

Well that didn't take long. Back in June, Amazon announced plans to add High Dynamic Range (HDR) to its streaming service sometime this year. Now, the company is putting that plan into place.

The service has officially started streaming HDR to Prime members in the U.S. HDR allows video content to have more steps between the blackest black and the whitest white, which means you can capture high-contrast scenes, such as sunsets, starfields, street lamps and more, all with much greater realism. It also promises better colors and more distinct highlights.

If you thought limiting the perk to Prime members seemed exclusive, know that the image boost will only be available to Prime members with one of Samsung's SUHD TVs. It's available now through the smart TV's Amazon Video app.
