Video streaming provider VUDU has announced the addition of HDR10 support in certain streaming media devices (listed below). Up to now, VUDU has only supported High Dynamic Range playback in the Dolby Vision format, which is available on a fewer number of HDR-capable displays. VUDU sent the following notice to its subscribers on November 17:
Vudu has launched support for HDR10 on compatible Samsung and LG TVs, Xbox One S and X, and Roku 4K and Nvidia Shield devices. This is in addition to our already existing Dolby Vision HDR format support.
Now that we offer both HDR formats, Vudu users have access to more 4K + HDR movies across many more devices.
You can currently watch over 36 movies in HDR10, with more on the way. Users with HDR-capable devices will automatically receive the best possible format compatible with their 4K + HDR device.
Any movies that you have previously purchased on Vudu in 4K UHD that qualify for an HDR10 update will be viewable in 4K HDR.
Thank you for your continued support of Vudu. We look forward to bringing you many more movies in 4K + HDR across many more devices.
