More TVs & devices support 4k HDR from Vudu

vudu-hdr-dolby-hdr10-logosVudu was one of the first to integrate Dolby Vision into digital movies, but for long time the HDR playback was limited to only select Vizio and LG 4k TVs. However, the list of supporting TVs and devices has expanded quite a bit to include more televisions, streaming media players, and the Xbox One S and X consoles.

And as of yesterday, Vudu now supports the HDR10 specification with select titles on Vudu-certified 4K UHD devices, although we’ve yet to find a title among their 4k UHD library that’s encoded with HDR10. They’ve also added a new icon that indicates HDR playback (seen above), which may represent either Dolby Vision or HDR10 in the specifications of the digital movie.

Where exactly has Vudu expanded HDR playback? Two more Roku players support HDR now including the Roku Premiere+ and Ultra (when paired with a compatible 4K HDR TV), as well as the Nvidia Shield TV. And, the 2017 Samsung UBD-M9500 Ultra HD Blu-ray player can stream Vudu in HDR.

TVs that now support HDR from Vudu include Roku TV TCL P & C-Series models, LG UHD, Super UHD and OLED 4K TVs (2016 and 2017 models), and Samsung MU and Q-Series 4K HDR TVs.
