YouTube has been supporting HDR for just a little over a month now, and apart from Google's own Chromecast Ultra, there really isnt any device that would support the new feature. However, looks like Samsung is here to the rescue.
Things are starting to change as a new update to Samsung's 2016 Quantum Dot and UHD televisions will allow the built in YouTube app to display HDR content. Sure its still in its baby steps for YouTube as well, but as time goes on, more devices will soon have support as well. For example, Virgin Media’s new Virgin TV V6 box will also support the new standard when it launches next year.
There is still no confirmation if other TV manufacturers and set-top box providers will start support for the new HDR standard, but for sure, they wont be too far behind. Meanwhile, if you want to try out HDR, all you have to do is go to YouTube's dedicated HDR section and browse.
For those of you who dont know yet, HDR is a new technology that expands the range of brightness a TV is capable of displaying. This would result in darker blacks, brighter whites and other images with more depth and detail.
