New Netflix Original Series in 4k & HDR
Netflix is no slacker when it comes to producing content in 4k, with more and more titles streaming in Ultra HD resolution every month. And, much of the content is also encoded in HDR (High Dynamic Range), a format the company promised over 150 hours of by year’s end.
The first series to stream in Ultra HD on Netflix were titles like Marco Polo, House of Cards, and Better Call Saul. But there are quite a few titles that have been added to Netflix’s Ultra HD lineup since we last updated our list, and those we’ve provided brief descriptions of below.
