As 4K HDR TV and immersive audio adoption continues to grow, more and more content providers have begun to embrace HDR10+, Dolby Vision, and Dolby Atmos content. And when it comes to streaming services, Amazon Prime Video continues to offer a respectable library of HDR titles.
Primarily consisting of the provider's own assortment of original series and movies, Amazon HDR support is available on virtually all current gen 4K HDR compatible smart TVs and media players with a Prime subscription. According to the company, all HDR content is available in HDR10+ via compatible Samsung 4K TV models and will default to that format on supported displays. Standard HDR10 playback is provided for displays without HDR10+ capabilities, and Dolby Vision is offered for select titles on Dolby Vision TVs from manufacturers like LG, Sony, VIZIO, TCL, and Hisense.
Meanwhile, Prime Video Dolby Atmos playback is currently supported via several media players and smart TVs with Dolby Atmos output support, including the Fire TV Cube, Fire TV Stick 4K, Samsung TVs (2017 or newer), LG OLED TVs (2017 or newer), VIZIO TVs (2015 or newer), or Xbox One, Xbox One S, and Xbox One X game consoles.
Unlike some other streaming services, however, Amazon Prime Video doesn't make it quite as easy to find HDR or Dolby Atmos content through its platform. Though scrolling down the smart TV app's "Homepage" does reveal Ultra HD categories for shows and movies, users have to select each title individually to see if they also support HDR. And even more confusing, if one switches from the "Homepage" to the "Originals" sub-heading, there are additional sections for Ultra HD shows and movies that include some titles missing from the homepage's categories and vice-versa. Likewise, searching for the keyword "HDR" does not pull up a list of HDR titles. What's worse, Amazon actually has separate listings for SDR and HDR versions of all its supported content, and only the SDR versions seem to ever appear in search results when a title is typed in.
In other words, there might actually be some HDR titles currently not included in any of the app's sub-categories -- essentially making them impossible to find. And when it comes to audio, the service does not seem to currently designate Dolby Atmos support at all (Jack Ryan offers Atmos but is only labeled as 5.1 in its listing).
With all that in mind, we've scoured through Amazon's listings to offer a handy list of Everything on Amazon Prime Video currently available in HDR10+, Dolby Vision, and/or Dolby Atmos.
Note: Format support applies to all seasons of a show unless a specific season is specified.
