In an era where online streaming lords over traditional television watching, Netflix has steadily climbed up the industry ladder to become the world’s 10th-largest internet company by revenue in 2015.
Despite the impressive showing, the company is far from sitting on its laurels. From releasing a slew of well-favoured original titles to introducing new features to its app, audiences have been constantly exposed to a wholesome viewing experience.
On December 22, things are about to get even better.
Following the addition of Ultra HD 4K support to Windows 10 in early 2017, Netflix has once again raised quality standards by making High Dynamic Range (HDR) available on Windows 10 for both the Edge browser and Netflix app.
This means that viewers will now be able to immerse themselves in their favourite movies and shows through a concoction of delicious colours, sharper definition, and greater depth. The Upside Down in Stranger Things 2 can never get any more terrifying!
The announcement comes at a timely moment – the upcoming film Bright, which stars Will Smith, is also scheduled to be released jointly on the same day.
With over 200 hours of HDR entertainment available on Netflix, the latest addition to its arsenal of viewing tools may just be a game changer. Although premium video features like 4K and HDR are still relatively new to the PC market, more HDR-supported PCs will be entering the fray in 2018, so demand looks set to increase in the coming years.
Netflix fans, it’s time to knock yourself out.
