Samsung announced HDR10 + support on Google Play Movies earlier this year in January, and the streaming service acquired the feature in July. Well, finally, Samsung Smart TV owners can now watch HDR10 + content from Google Play Movies in 117 countries including North America, Europe, and Korea.
“Users can now enjoy high-resolution HDR10 + 4K HDR content on Google Play Movies, with many HDR10 + titles available, such as Joker, Aquaman, Wonder Woman, Shazam! And Crazy Rich Asian,” says Samsung.
In addition to Samsung’s Smart TV lineup, Google Play Movies plans to support HDR10 + content on other additional platforms in the future. In fact, Google Play Movies is not the only streaming service to offer HDR10 + on Samsung Smart TVs. In 2017, Amazon Prime Video began supporting the HDR10 + standard on Samsung’s smart TV sets.
For the Uninitiated, Samsung together with Panasonic and 20th Century Fox announced HDR10 + as an open, royalty-free dynamic metadata platform for the High Dynamic Range (HDR) back in August 2017. Raising open standards is actually good news for consumers. .
Right now, Samsung says that the HDR10 + Standard Alliance has 108 partners worldwide. The South Korean tech giant believes the entry of Google Play Movies will accelerate the expansion of HDR10 +.
“We are pleased to expand partnerships with top global streaming providers. We will continue to strengthen our HDR standard leadership and lead innovation in TV technology in the global market, ”said Youngghun Choi, executive vice president of visual display business and head of R&D team at Samsung Electronics.
