The Galaxy Note 8 and LG V30 Are Now HDR Compatible with Netflix

Netflix has added two new devices to its list of supported devices that are compatible with displaying HDR content: the new Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and LG V30. These devices join the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, Sony Xperia XZ1 and XZ Premium, LG G6, Chromecast Ultra, and Nvidia Shield and Shield Pro.

Notably, these devices aren’t verified by Dolby so you won’t be able to stream Dolby Vision enabled content but rather standard HDR. Currently, the G6 is the only phone that falls into this category, but the V30 will at least join this list at some point in the future if LG and Dolby’s partnership holds strong.

To stream HDR content on the V30 or Note 8, you’ll have to be subscribed to Netflix’s highest-paid plan which costs $11.99/month. Once you’re subscribed, just sign into the latest version of the Netflix app for Android. Currently, only limited shows like Dare DevilHouse of Cards, and Marco Polo are streaming in HDR, so your High Dynamic Range library will likely be pretty small for the time being. Hopefully, in the near future, more content will be added to Netflix’s growing list.
