HDR TV Buying Guide

Are you in the market for a new TV for your home theater and wondering what HDR is? Here's a quick guide that includes a brief explanation, analysis, and comparison of HDR vs non-HDR. 

HDR TVs are capable of displaying a much wider range of colors compared to a traditional TV. Having an HDR TV doesn't make everything you watch appear in HDR. The content needs to be shot and mastered in HDR in order to see it in HDR. An HDR Bluray, certain Netflix movies, and HDR games on the Xbox One-S are all able to play HDR content.

There are a lot of TVs out there that are claiming HDR capability, which can be confusing. The easiest way to determine if a TV has a 10-bit (HDR) panel is to look for the "Ultra HD Premium" badge. This is a standard that has certain requirements for an HDR TV.
