    If one was to keep match dynamic range off on the Apple TV 4K and watch an Amazon Prime show that is in HDR, it would show in Dolby Vision.

    Is that a bad thing? Is Dolby vision not better than plain HDR?

    So the show, let’s say, The Grand Tour. Would have had to be created with Dolby Vision? None of Amazon’s shows are in Dolby Vision then.

    Yep. Amazon doesn’t do any Dolby Vision stuff.

    Just been reading that they introduced Dolby vision in the USA two years ago. For some unknown reason it’s not available outside the USA.

    Correct, although that is going to change when Jack Ryan is released next week.
