Galaxy Note 7 will support Amazon HDR video

When Samsung announced the Galaxy Note 7, it said that the device will support mobile HDR video, a new version of HDR content geared for smaller displays. It sounded neat, but, until now, we didn’t know who was going to provide that content. Amazon just filled that gap.

Shortly after Samsung announced the Galaxy Note 7, Amazon said it will offer Note 7 owners the option to stream mobile HDR content to the smartphone. Amazon Prime members will be able to access Amazon’s entire library, including Amazon’s HDR content that, until now, had only been supported by UHDTVs. Non-prime members can also access HDR content, including movies such as Pineapple Express, which can be purchased.

Oddly, Amazon didn’t reveal support for the Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge, which have the same processor used in the Galaxy Note 7. One would think that support will eventually launch for those handsets, but there’s no confirmation it ever will.

Here’s what you’ll be able to watch, and most of it should be available right through the Amazon Video app on your Galaxy Note 7:

· Bosch Season 1 & 2
· Good Girls Revolt (pilot)
· Highston (pilot)
· Mad Dogs
· The Man in the High Castle
· Mozart in the Jungle Season 1 & 2
· One Mississippi (pilot)
