Online streaming services are serious about allowing their subscribers to stream HDR content. Netflix has made no secret of the fact that it wants to bring this option for its subscribers and it appears that the online streaming giant might have quietly flipped the switch on HDR streaming. Multiple reports suggest that it’s now possible to stream content in HDR using Netflix.

Multiple reports suggest that Netflix has rolled out support for HDR streaming quietly, Netflix hasn’t made an official announcement, but a company executive did confirm to a publication that “We are indeed live with HDR,” adding that the feature works with compatible TVs, both in HDR10 and Dolby Vision.

Netflix subscribers who want to stream content in HDR will not only require a very capable internet connection, they will also require a TV that has support for High Dynamic Range content, otherwise, viewers will not be able to tell the difference in content.

A spokesperson for Netflix has also confirmed to Inside CI that HDR programming will be available for streaming to compatible TVs in all regions where Netflix is available. There’s not a lot of HDR content available on Netflix right now, its Marco Polo original series can be streamed in HDR, and Daredevil will soon be available for streaming in High Dynamic Range as well.
