4K UHD HDR movies are now available for streaming from Google Play in the US and Canada. There are currently several titles you can rent or buy from the popular streaming service. Titles include Kong: Skull Island, The Lego Batman Movie, Pacific Rim and Passengers, just to name a few.
To be sure a particular movie is available in HDR, I suggest you scroll down to the “Additional Information” section once you select a title you want to watch.
HDR movies provide a wider range of brightness and color to the picture image for a more life-like presentation. To watch HDR movies from Google Play, you will need a Chromecast Ultra media device and a 4K TV capable of displaying HDR content. You’ll also need a consistent download speed of at least 15 megabits per second.
