    Additional titles in HDR and expanded device compatibility can be expected this year as Amazon continues to work with Hollywood studios, technology leaders and global consumer electronics companies to expand the Amazon HDR experience.

    Amazon has been enhancing the entertainment experience by offering blockbuster movies, hit TV shows and Amazon Original series to Prime members and customers in 4K Ultra HD over recent months and continues to grow the catalogue of titles available in the resolution.

    Prime members can start watching Mozart in the Jungle and Red Oaks in HDR through the Amazon Video app on Samsung SUHD TVs. Now then Samsung, we're sure you must have some compatible TVs we’ve not yet reviewed to send us...
