Determined to watch streaming video with the maximum color range possible? You now have your chance. As promised, Amazon Prime Instant Video is now offering high dynamic range (HDR) videos to American customers. Watch the first season of Mozart in the Jungle on the right TV (currently, that means one of Samsung's SUHD models) and you should see more vivid colors as well as a greater level of detail in highlights and shadows. The move is as much about bragging rights as anything else -- Amazon is beating Netflix to the punch, and HDR doesn't automatically make everything better. It also won't help much if you're in the UK or have the 'wrong' TV. All the same, this is a big step forward for internet video quality.
