LG confirms HDR streaming from Amazon on 2015 4K OLED TVs
LG has announced the launch of High Dynamic Range (HDR) streaming on 2015 LG OLED 4K TVs via the Amazon Video app.
Amazon Video is the first provider delivering HDR content on LG OLED 4K TVs. Beginning today, in the US, popular Amazon Original Series Transparent and Mozart in the Jungle, as well as the pilot episode of upcoming comedy series Red Oaks, are now available to stream on HDR on LG’s latest OLED 4K Ultra HD TVs, including the just-announced EF9500 Flat OLED 4K TV series, some EG9600 and EG9200 models and the Curved OLED 4K TV series.
The EF9500 series comes with full HDR capability built in, allowing consumers to play back HDR content from both streaming content partners and external source devices. LG’s EG9600 series received a firmware update so consumers can stream content from current and future providers.
LG OLED 4K TVs meet the new CEA guidelines for HDR-Compatible Video Displays and the technology is perfectly suited for HDR content because it delivers the perfect black that only OLED TVs can achieve.
“By partnering with Amazon to deliver HDR content on LG’s OLED TV, we are confident we can deliver the best viewing experience available on a TV today for HDR content,” said Lee In-kyu, senior vice president and head of the TV and monitor division at LG’s Home Entertainment Company. “The streaming content market has grown enormously in the last few years and our partnership will bring the best in picture quality to more consumers.”
Amazon streaming HDR content will be available later this month on LG OLED 4K Ultra HD TVs in the USA, UK, Germany and Austria.
