Want to know how to watch 4k Ultra HD with HDR (High Dynamic Range) on DirecTV? There are some requirements that we want to make you aware of. What really determines what you need is whether or not your TV is DirecTV-certified. Samsung, Sony, and LG are among the TV manufacturers that have certified TVs. If you don’t have one of those models you just need a 4k Genie Mini in addition to a Genie HD DVR (Model HR54) and the SELECT service package or higher. Refer to this list of DIRECTV-Certified 4k TVs.
