Earlier this year, Netflix said its near-future plans focused on HDR streaming and creating more original content. And now, according to multiple reports, Netflix has quietly rolled out support for high dynamic range video. Although it hasn't made an official announcement, an executive at the company confirmed the feature earlier today. "We are indeed live with HDR. It works with compatible TVs, both in HDR10 and Dolby Vision," Yann Lafargue, Netflix's manager of corporate communications said to FlatpanelsHD.

Meanwhile, a different spokesperson for the streaming service told Inside CI that HDR programming will be delivered to compatible televisions anywhere Netflix is available. Right now, Marco Polo is the only show streaming in HDR, but Netflix did tell Engadget recently that Daredevil would take advantage of the technology as well. Either way, we're trying to confirm the news on our end and we'll update this story as soon as we hear back from Netflix.

Update: A Netflix representative said this to Engadget:

As of mid-March, we have been providing both Dolby Vision and HDR10 streams to supported TVs, giving Netflix members an even more visually stunning experience. Marco Polo season 1 is available now, with more titles -- including Marvel's Daredevil -- coming soon.
