Here’s a bit of technology news you might have missed from last month: Netflix (very quietly and without much pomp) started streaming in high-dynamic range. If you have an HDR TV you can now expect more colours and a wider range between the black and white.

“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,” Netflix stated earlier this week. “Marco Polo season 1 is available now, with more titles–including Marvel’s Daredevil–coming soon.”

It’s not a huge deal yet, since most are likely lacking a newer HDR supporting television and it’s only a single series of HDR content, but Netflix has to start somewhere, right?

I read, I write, I play videogames, Ghostbusters is my favourite thing in the known universe, but quasars come in at a close second. I've been known to cry at the drop of a hat over happy and sad things alike. I've also been known to fly into a rage if things don't go my way, leading to many a fight in high school and breaking someone's nose on the TTC one time. I'm an anxious introvert but also a loud-mouthed bad influence. Especially on my cat. He learned it from watching me, okay!
