What HDR Formats Does Prime Video Support?

Want to know what HDR (High Dynamic Range) formats Prime Video supports? The platform currently supports the main three formats used for home media applications when streaming video. Those formats include Dolby Vision, HDR10, and HDR10+.

To view any of those formats though, your TV, computer monitor, or mobile device must support at least one of those formats. And, the device that streams the content to a display must also support the format (eg. Apple TV 4k, Fire TV, Roku Ultra, Smart TVs, game consoles).

Prime Video does not, at this point, support the passthrough of HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma), the HDR format used often for live events such as sports and concerts.

See a list of 4k HDR titles on Prime. Or, read How To Get 4k/HDR on Prime Video.

HDR is a video specification found mainly within 4k Ultra HD content (but also some HD content) that expands the color depth on TVs, computer monitors, and mobile device screens. In practice, the spec expands the bit depth from 8-bits (SDR) to 10-bits (HDR).
