It’s been a while since streaming platforms are offering content in high resolution. Both Netflix, HBO Max, Prime Video, Disney + and company, they bet heavily on 4K UHDas well as its ever-increasing foray into better HDR formats.
Netflix has a good catalog of movies compatible with Dolby Vision, being a good way to test the capabilities of your television. In this article we show you how to access movies in that format and a list with some of the best movies in Dolby Vision currently available on Netflix.
What do I need to watch movies in Dolby Vision?
The first thing we must bear in mind is that, to play content in Dolby Vision, we must have a TV compatible with this format. Today it is not very complicated for a television with 4K UHD resolution to have this type of HDR, unless you have a Samsung Smart TV, which opts for the HDR10+ format for content in high dynamic range, an option similar to Dolby’s. In this way, first of all, make sure that your TV can play content in Dolby Vision.
Another point to note is that to play Dolby Vision compatible content on Netflix, we have to subscribe to the ‘Premium’ plan of the platform. This plan, in addition to offering simultaneous playback on up to 4 devices, also allows us to watch movies in 4K and compatible with HDR.
In addition to the above, it would not hurt to check our Internet connection speed, since according to the company, to play a movie in 4K from Netflix a minimum of 25 Mbps of bandwidth will be required. If you don’t know what connection speed you have, you can always resort to the numerous Internet speed tests.
Once all the requirements are taken into account, let’s go with some of the best Netflix movies compatible with Dolby Vision. Under these lines we leave you with the list.
