Why you should watch Netflix shows in Dolby Vision
Have you ever lost the thread of a TV or film story due to an overly dark screen or blown-out light? Creators continue to push the boundaries of visual art with lighting and colour, but until now, the technology that lets fans watch mind-bending drama and documentaries the way the creators intended has been limited. But now there’s Dolby Vision.
Dolby Vision captures every visual detail of your favourite Netflix shows with captivating colours, sharper contrasts, and richer details. It does this by bringing darker darks and brighter brights to your screen — sometimes all at once. Based on your service and device, it unlocks the full potential of HDR technology by dynamically optimising the image quality to deliver mesmerising visuals every time.
So, whether you’re engrossed in the soft powdery pastel hues of Bridgerton or the dark, sombre moments of The Crown, you can be sure Dolby Vision is giving you the most truthful viewing experience.
How to get the best Dolby Vision experience on Netflix
Watching Netflix shows in Dolby Vision is simple. First, you’ll want to make sure your TV is enabled with Dolby Vision. There’s a bunch on the market from many leading brands, including TCL, Sony, and LG. We’ve got a handy list of makes and models here. Just make sure you have updated the TV’s firmware to the latest version.
No Smart TV? Don’t want to hook your TV directly to the internet? Don’t like the TV’s interface? No problem. You can stream Dolby Vision films and series using Dolby Vision-enabled gaming consoles or set-top boxes. Be sure to use high-quality HDMI cables to connect your devices. Streaming wirelessly from your mobile device to a TV enabled with Dolby Vision with Chromecast is also an option.
If computers are your thing, Windows PCs with the Windows 10 or 11 Netflix app, or the Microsoft Edge browser, can stream Netflix in Dolby Vision when connected to a monitor enabled with Dolby Vision. For Mac owners, the streaming service can be accessed via the Safari browser, as long as your device is enabled with Dolby Vision.
