If you splurged on one of the many 4K TVs Sony released this year, you're likely in for a treat. Sony is expanding the reach of its high dynamic range (HDR) color update to include more sets. It was originally destined for just the X930C and X940C, but the upgrade is now slated to reach the X850C, X900C and X910C this fall. If you're one of the fortunate few in line for this image quality bump, you can expect more vivid colors, greater contrast and more details in both highlights and shadows.

And yes, Sony knows that this kind of improvement is meaningless without content. If you buy one of the supporting TVs "for a limited time," you'll get as much as $100 in HDR-enabled Sony movies from Amazon Video, like The Amazing Spider Man 2 and Fury. Amazon's original shows will also display in HDR, of course. This still doesn't give you a whole lot to watch, but at least it's a free update -- and if you need more titles, you can always snag an Ultra HD Blu-ray player.
