Amazon has been streaming 4k & HDR content since original series like Transparent and Mozart in the Jungle premiered a few years ago. Now, their 4k library has expanded to more than just original series but also movies and shows to purchase or rent. And, the service consistently adds new originals such as the Golden Globe-winning series The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.
While these are new Prime Originals you should check out regardless of video quality, the shows will only play in 4k and/or HDR on supporting Ultra HD TVs and devices using the Amazon Video app. And, you’ll need sufficient bandwidth to stream in 4k.
