Following support for the feature on a variety of smartphones, Netflix is adding HDR support to Windows 10. Now, for those of you who like to binge on their PC can do so in High Dynamic Range with supported content such as Daredevil, Marco Polo, and Bloodline. A wider range of content should become available during the course of 2018 for your enjoyment.

Unfortunately, you can’t just hook up an HDR compatible monitor to your existing PC and expect to watch Netflix in its highest quality. You’ll need to have Intel 7th-generation processors or higher and Intel integrated graphics. Alternatively, Nvidia’s 1050 GPU and up are also supported. However, no chips branded AMD are currently supported which, while unfortunate, should be resolved in the near future.

Still, for those of you who meet Netflix’s criteria, you can enjoy the best of what the service offers on your Windows 10 PC. It’s available both through the website in Microsoft Edge and the Windows 10 app.
