Xbox One S/X is Getting Netflix Dolby Vision Support

The feature is part of the System Update 1810 Preview for Xbox Insiders.

News by Tom Orry, .

If you use your Xbox One S or X as your primary media device, for watching movies and the like, the console is soon going to be a little bit more impressive. Rolling out in the System Update 1810 Preview for Xbox Insiders is an update that brings Dolby Vision support to Netflix on the consoles.

To make use of the newly added Dolby Vision support you'll need to be an Xbox Insider, own an Xbox One S or Xbox One X (sorry, no original Xbox One support), have a Premium Netflix membership, and have a TV that supports Dolby Vision.

Dolby Vision, when used correctly, makes HDR more accurate by offering scene-by-scene precision, instead of standard HDR's settings that apply to the whole movie. As with 4K support, you'll need to upgrade your Netflix membership if you want to make use of Dolby Vision.

The latest update also adds new Xbox avatar support across the entire dashboard, so you can see your creation on user profiles, friend blocks on Home, Gamerscore comparisons, Community posts, idle system notifications and more. While the Dolby Vision and Avatar update is currently only available for Xbox Insiders, it will be rolled out to all Xbox One S and Xbox One X users in the months to come. In other Netflix news, Castlevania Season 2 now has a release date.

    are there tvs that support dolby vision that dont have netflix with dolby vision built in?

    im pretty sure my tv is the first gen of the LG oleds that supported dolby vision and its netflix app supports it, i have a hard time believing that's a feature they would've removed. maybe some of the projectors dont have it?
