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’d rather skip straight to the content listings, click below.

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 to 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.

10-bit HDR vs 12-bit Dolby
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 Two Honest Guys reached out to 2 of the biggest streaming services in the world Netflix & Amazon to find out what titles they have that are 4K and carry 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.

[Update: 19/11/2017, although we reached out again to Amazon for an updated list on HDR content, this time they have been unresponsive, subsequently we have trundled through their library and found there was much more on offer than Amazon previously led us to believe]

It’s worth noting here that although I own a 2017 LG Oled C7V 4K Dolby Vision TV set these titles did not appear with the Dolby Vision logo or display it in the top corner of my screen. I did, however, reach out to Amazon regarding more clarification on 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 DV compatible?

Amazon HDR title[Amazon update 25/01/2018]

It looks as if Amazon is now shying away from Dolby Vision content and are instead focusing their attention in supporting Samsungs new open format 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 open standard 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 a 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 onboard 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 THG has 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 titles below also support Dolby Atmos format, which I have added in brackets when supported. All other titles support the standard 5.1 Dolby Digital format.

  1. Bosch season 2 is the only dolby vision content I see on amazon prime video, but i havent really looked for much else.

    • Thanks for the update Rich. I’ve yet to see any content from my end appear in Dolby Vision, but as this is just another HDR format I think it’s due to Amazons failure in keeping its Amazon Prime Video app up to date across devices that’s letting the service down, rather than a technical limitation of their service.

  2. I too have the 65″ LG OLED C7, and when I stream Black Mirror from Netflix, I do not get either a HDR or Dolby Vision indication in the screen corner. It seems like only Black Mirror has that problem.

    • Hi Kim,

      Really that’s very strange to hear indeed! I haven’t had any issues with content not displaying as it should in Netflix with my LG C7, although I have had to uninstall Netflix a few times due to it being buggy and constantly buffering on the content wheel!

      I would recommend checking that your TV is running the latest firmware (the C7 has had a few updates over the last few months) and maybe try reinstalling Netflix as another troubleshooting step. Let me know how you get on 🙂

  3. Hi, I have the LG 65” E7 and with its own soundbar, the Atmos sounds amazing.

    I am cancelling Amazon Video per the lack of content that they have to offer.

    When I have been in touch over the last few months I always get the same response about more content is coming and it would be an incredible amount at that.

    I’m not buying their excuses anymore.

    Thank you for taking time out to write the lists out though! Big thumbs up mate!

    Cheers Ryan, take care

    • No problem Matt, glad you’ve enjoyed the article. I agree, Amazon have really dropped the ball here, I’ve added to my piece to reflect Amazons latest moves towards HDR content. Keep checking back here at THG as I am regularly updating this list!

  4. Small world, I just found you off google searching for a Dolby Vision content list for Amazon Video

  5. Thanks for the info re the Dolby Atmos titles on Netflix. Haven’t been able to find that anywhere. I’m watching Cloverfield: Paradox right now. It is also in HDR and Atmos.

  6. Hi Ryan, my question is this. I recently purchased an LG C7 65″ OLED. So recent is my purchase that I am still within the 30 day return window provided by my local electronics store. I went into said electronics store tonight to purchase a blu ray player. I purchased the Sony X700 blu ray player and when purchasing the sale associate at the store asked if I wanted to upgrade to the higher end X800 player. I told him no, that the reason I was purchasing the X700 was that it has support for DOLBY VISION via an update. The sales associate basically told me that DOLBY VISION is dead and that major company’s (Samsung, fox , amazon) going forward will only be supporting the new HDR10+ format. Can you please provide some insight into this issue and just general thoughts on whether or not this is going to become a blu ray vs. hd-dvd type of battle and if so who do you think will win ? I bought the LG tv based on internet reviews and being a 9-5 kind of guy I really want to make sure my hard earned cash is being spent on a technology that will remain viable for at least the next few years. Please help!!!

    • Hi Greg, thanks for reaching out, I believe I can offer my insight here.

      Off the bat ignore the sales clerk, Sony added a firmware update to their latest TV line earlier this year to the Z9D, A1E, X930E and X940E models to enable Dolby Vision. These are also Sony’s flagship high-end displays so this jackass clearly has no clue!

      Although there are people claiming a format war is approaching that’s hardly the case right now and I honestly can’t see it becoming one when Dolby Vision is already so far ahead of the game in its display processing technology. HDR10+ is also just a minor modification of an existing technology to enable dynamic metadata so I wouldn’t worry about it replacing DV.

      As far as the blu ray player is concerned that does sound very Sony, they might update the X800 like they did their flagship line of TVs but then there’s no guaranty that they’ll do that either.
      There are already a great many 4k blu ray physical titles that support Dolby Vision if you’re interested here – (http://forum.blu-ray.com/showthread.php?t=276448). I would consider looking at Panasonic, I’ve heard good things about their 4k blu ray players supporting Dolby Vision.

      What is likely to happen is that TVs will support both technologies in the near future. Consider how technology handles Dolby Vision and HDR content right now, if you were to watch on Netflix a TV show or Movie that’s encoded in Dolby Vision and your display supports it you get DV content – IF you display only supports HDR and not DV you just get a HDR presentation instead.
      The same principle applies with Dolby Vision 4k blu rays, if all the hardware supports it then you have DV content if not it reverts to HDR.

      My recommendations are that you’ve picked up a great TV that supports multiple technologies and not to worry about HDR10+ if display panel supports Dolby Vision then it is a 12-bit panel, HDR is 10-bit, the only thing that changes is the processing of the content, HDR would just likely get a bump in its processing algorithm to enable the dynamic metadata.

      However, if you have a decent internet connection I would consider looking into the Apple TV 4k, as it offers a vast movie library of Dolby Vision content from iTunes. Even the latest movie releases are £10 than equivalent physical 4k blu rays if your intent is to build a collection. As an added bonus as well if you purchase HD content that later gains Dolby Vision support, your HD content will be automatically bumped up to 4k Dolby Vision.

      I hope this helps!

      Ryan
