HDR TVs and sources

To start, you'll need a television that's capable of displaying HDR images. For the best experience, a TV with a 10 bit panel. These TVs are able to show more colors than an 8 bit television, making HDR images look much more impressive. With an Ultra HD Blu-ray player, you can watch HDR movies and series via Ultra HD Blu-ray discs. If you prefer streaming, you can use Netflix. Netflix offers several movies and series in HDR.
