Does Amazon Prime Video have Dolby Vision?
Amazon Prime Video offers content in Dolby Vision for some of its most popular streaming series. Whether it’s the light-hearted comedy of The People We Hate at the Wedding, spies saving the world in Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, or elves battling orcs in The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, you can experience a picture that pulls you in with mind-popping colour. You can also purchase and download titles in Dolby Vision.
As film and TV buffs ourselves, we understand that being immersed in a story — whether a film, a series, or a documentary — involves more than staring at a screen. The Dolby Difference is about seeing, feeling, and connecting to the characters. That’s why Dolby has pushed the boundaries of colour, contrast, brightness, and luminosity (glow), using the latest technology to create a feast for the eyes. So the viewing experience becomes more like looking through a window, rather than staring at a collection of pixels. Because your eyes deserve better.
Why you should watch Amazon Prime Video shows in Dolby Vision
Have you ever lost the thread of a TV or film plot due to a scene that’s too dark or over-bright? Creators continue to push the boundaries of visual art with lighting and colour. Until now, though, the technology that lets fans watch mind-bending drama and documentaries the way the creators intended has been limited by technology. But now there’s Dolby Vision.
Dolby Vision captures every visual detail of your favourite series and films with ultravivid colours, sharper contrasts, and richer details. It does this by bringing darker blacks and brighter whites 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. This means that the series The Wheel of Time — an adaptation of the bestselling books — is available in captivating colour that lets you catch every detail.
How to get an optimal Dolby Vision experience on Amazon Prime Video
Watching Amazon Prime Video shows in Dolby Vision is simple. First, you’ll want to make sure your TV is enabled with Dolby Vision. There’s a wide variety on the market from many leading brands, including TCL, Sony, and LG. We’ve got a handy list of makes and models here. If you’re on the go and mobile viewing is your thing, be sure to check out our list of mobile devices enabled with Dolby Vision too.
You’ll also need an Amazon Prime account, which includes access to Amazon Prime Video as one of its benefits. Using the app on your TV or device, browse the available content, looking for films and series marked with the Dolby Vision badge. Select the content you want to watch and enjoy.
One additional thing to look for is the Dolby Atmos badge. Dolby Atmos is an immersive audio technology that puts you at the centre of the sound. Many devices enabled with Dolby Vision are also enabled with Dolby Atmos, meaning you can experience a new wave of sound that hits deep.
