Microsoft releases Dolby Vision HDR support for Xbox Insiders

Microsoft today announced the release of Dolby Vision HDR support for Xbox Insiders in the Alpha Skip Ahead and Alpha rings. With this update, Xbox Insiders on Xbox One S and Xbox One X with a compatible TV can watch Dolby Vision streaming content on Netflix.

When compared to a standard picture, Dolby Vision can deliver colors never seen before on a screen, incredible contrast, highlights that are up to 40 times brighter, and blacks that are 10 times darker. The result is a refined, lifelike image that will make you forget you are looking at a screen.

Here’s how to setup Dolby Vision HDR on Xbox:

  • First check if you have a compatible TV by going on your Xbox to the 4K TV Details page under Settings.
  • Enable Dolby Vision on your console by navigating to Settings -> Display and sound -> Video output -> Video modes -> Allow Dolby Vision.
  • Then log in to your Netflix account (premium subscription required) and play your favorite Dolby Vision enabled title.
