Amazon announced on Monday that it is now offering its HDR content in two different standards, Dolby Vision HDR and HDR 10. Prior to today, Amazon had only offered customers HDR 10 content, and the addition of Dolby Vision HDR means that more customers will be able to take advantage of the service on boxes and TVs that otherwise didn’t support HDR 10. As a reminder, Sony, Samsung and LG have used HDR 10 while LG has also chosen to use Dolby Vision HDR on some of its other TVs.

The selection isn’t as large just yet, but there’s some compelling content available including Pineapple ExpressElysium, Fury, Hancock, After Earth, The Amazing Spiderman 2 and Amazon’s original series Bosch. The movies are available for purchase or rent, while Bosch is available for free to Prime members who want to get a taste of what Dolby Vision HDR offers.

Amazon said it will continue to support both formats and plans to add additional content for HDR 10 and Dolby Vision HDR.
