YouTube to also support HDR video, following recent Amazon and Netflix announcements
This week, during CES, Google announced that YouTube will support HDR video, following in the footsteps of Amazon and Netflix.

Robert Kyncl, YouTube's Chief Business Officer, made the announcement while announcing a partnership with GoPro and its new 360-degree video.

HDR is the new fad in TV and video technology, promising improved video through expanded color palettes and contrast ratios. HDR picture quality, in theory, produces much richer colors and more realistic and natural images.

Of course, to be able to view the content you will need an HDR TV, but luckily, nearly every big manufacturer announced one this year at CES.
