We have good news for all the Netflix fans! The company announced the addition of HDR support for the Windows 10 Edge Browser as well as the Netflix application for the operating system.

Netflix and Microsoft have partnered to add the necessary changes to the operating system and browser. It is worth noting that users must have Intel’s seventh-generation i3 / i5 / i7 processors or newer ones to take advantage of Netflix HDR10 encoding.

In addition, Intel, as well as Nvidia, are developing GPUs that use 10 bits per channel for each of the RGB colors. With this update, Netflix subscribers who have such phones and premium subscriptions can enjoy HDR movies and TV shows.

You’ll also need to be updated to the Fall Creators Update, which added the necessary bits needed to support HDR. Of course, your display will also have to support HDR, which is still a fairly new thing for desktop PC monitors. It’s not yet clear if AMD processors are or will be supported.

If you have a compatible PC and display, you should be able to get started with Netflix HDR streaming from the app or in Microsoft Edge now.
