Before we delve into these titles I think a brief introduction to these exciting new formats is in order, after all not all of us keep up to date with the latest technological trends.
However, if you prefer to just skip to the good stuff and by that, I, of course, mean the list that 90% of you have come here to see click here! instead.
4K UHD TV sets are becoming more and more common in the household these days it seems as if the increased resolution format is starting to become the norm as it was back in the days of the leap to HD from SDR.
Many of these new sets also support the HDR10 bit colour garment which features High-dynamic-range imaging techniques, these produce a greater dynamic range of luminosity & shadows than is possible with TV sets that do not support it (this includes the more basic 4K only TV sets).
The Dolby Vision HDR12 bit format, on the other hand, is the very latest in HDR technology featuring significantly increased colour range and a sharper contrast between highlights and shadows. This delivers picture quality that is much more vivid and lifelike, a visual representation of how this may look can be seen below.
So with all this great technology now available to us how is it we can benefit from this new format, what HDR titles are readily available to us? Well, recently I reached out to 2 of the biggest streaming services in the world Netflix & Amazon to find out what content they have that are 4K and support the HDR/Dolby Vision colour garment.
Amazon Prime UK were happy to provide this list to us of their current 4K HDR titles. I can confirm that these titles are indeed 4K HDR, I am however unable to
confirm if these titles support the Dolby Vision 12-bit colour garment.
Amazon of course house a huge selection of 4K movie titles to rent or buy on their streaming service, so this list below is only what is provided by an Amazon Prime membership.
Amazon 4K HDR Title List [Updated 01/06/2018]
I need to make the readers aware now that Amazon has not released any 4K HDR content that I am aware of in 2018, which is shocking given how much content Netflix keeps adding. I am no longer keeping this list up to date until there some significant developments around the Amazon Video platform. Check back here because of course if they do step their game up I will add the information here for your convenience.

Although I personally own an LG OLED C7 4K Dolby Vision TV set none of these titles carries the Dolby Vision logo when watching, I also checked using my Apple TV 4K to rule out an app problem, but I still had the HDR logo.
We proceeded by reaching out to Amazon regarding more clarification on their support for HDR Dolby Vision content.
Following a direct quote from the Amazon representative “Please be informed that Dolby Vision replaces an HDR title on Dolby Vision compatible devices, for Dolby Vision enabled content.” This would mean then none of their HDR titles are Dolby Vision compatible.
It looks as if Amazon is now shying away from Dolby Vision content and are instead focusing their attention in supporting Samsungs cheaper format option HDR10+, this is all likelihood in a bid to reduce the costs involved in paying the licensing fee for Dolby Vision content.
But then again it’s not like the mega-company Amazon are short on cash, so although this move seems surprising it does make sense as feedback from our readers suggests that only 1 or 2 seasons of shows are Dolby Vision enabled and if Amazon is paying a license fee for just that, the move makes sense from a cost-effective standpoint.
It’s worth noting though that it would help a great deal if Amazons representatives were a little more clued up in the company’s grander plans in providing its customers HDR content through Amazon Prime, clarity on what instore is very vague for the streaming service.
What is HDR10+ content?
HDR10+ is an improvement over HDR, the improvement comes in the form of dynamic metadata. HDR currently contains only static metadata in its video stream, whereas HDR10+ allows for the use of dynamic data. Simply put dynamic metadata allows for a frame by frame colour adjustments in real-time.
This, in turn, means that those HDR settings are adjusted automatically corresponding to the on-screen image, allowing us to get the most of HDR10+ supported content. Dolby Vision already contains dynamic metadata and for companies unwilling to pay Dolby’s licensing fee to create content in the highest quality available, HDR10+ is the next best thing.
However, it is worth noting that Dolby Vision content is still superior given that 12-bit colour allows for a colour range of 4096 compared to HDRs 10-bit colour range of 1024.
Amazons future for HDR10+ Content
With Amazon now publicly adopting the aforementioned HDR10+ colour format it will theoretically allow wider overall support from TV manufacturers, as only LG and a select few Sony TV’s actually supporting the Dolby Vision colour format, leaving out big names such as Samsung, Philips and Panasonic. These last 4 manufacturers are all on board to support the HDR10+ colour format in their 2018 range of TV’s, which as I mentioned, in theory, opens up more opportunities for Amazon now.
Amazons HDR content has been thin on the ground in 2017 and it hasn’t changed much over those 12 months so maybe being an early adopter of the new HDR10+ colour format in 2018 will be the push the company needs to face off against the undoubtedly superior HDR – Dolby Vision supported content streaming service Netflix.
We also reached out to Netflix on two separate occasions and although we have yet to receive any correspondence back we harbour no ill will against the streaming giant. Thus I have painstakingly looked through Netflix’s vast library and I can confirm that these titles support HDR and Dolby Vision if your TV set supports it.
It’s worth noting here as well that a few select Dolby Vision titles below also support Dolby Atmos. I have added in brackets when supported, all other titles support the standard 5.1 Dolby Digital format.
Titles marked with asterisks * are not presented in HDR/Dolby Vision, but do support
the Dolby Atmos sound format.
