PlayStation 4 will play Netflix and YouTube videos in HDR

Sony made much ado over high dynamic range imagery for gaming on the PlayStation 4 Pro at its September event, but don't worry -- it knows you want to watch HDR videos, too. The console maker announced that both Netflix and YouTube are making new apps that should play HDR videos on all PS4 models. You'll need a Pro to play videos from either service in 4K, alas, but this still means that you'll get richer colors when you're watching Luke Cage and other supporting shows. At least the Netflix app will be available around the time of the PS4 Pro's November launch, so you'll have a way to show off your HDR-capable TV in the near future.
