Due to the fact that all TVs were designed differently, what a TV show or movie looks like on one TV can look different on another, which are marketing points that companies are using to promote their products. However if you’d rather take the guess work out of the equation and watch shows as they were meant to watch, Netflix and Sony might have something for you.


Netflix has recently announced that they have teamed up with Sony to launch a new feature called “Calibrated mode” which have been designed with Sony’s TVs in mind. According to Netflix, “We’re now thrilled to introduce Netflix Calibrated Mode, a new feature developed by Sony picture quality and device experts in collaboration with Netflix color scientists and available exclusively on Sony’s BRAVIA MASTER Series A9F OLED and Z9F LED TVs.”

Netflix adds, “With one simple menu setting, our members can view TV shows, films, and documentaries on Netflix as they were meant to be seen, with precise colors, accurate dynamic contrast, and true motion so there’s no ‘soap opera effect.’” However as Netflix notes, this seems to be only applicable to Sony TVs at the moment.

We’re not sure if there are plans to eventually extend this feature (or something similar) to other TV brands, but for now if you’re a Netflix subscriber with a compatible Sony TV, then this could be a feature to look out for.
