What is Dolby Vision?
Dolby Vision transforms your TV experience with ultravivid picture quality — incredible brightness, contrast, and color that bring entertainment to life before your eyes. When compared to a standard picture, Dolby Vision can deliver colors never seen before on a screen, incredible contrast, highlights that are up to 40 times brighter, and blacks that are 10 times darker. The result is a refined, lifelike image that will make you forget you are looking at a screen. If you would like to learn more about what Dolby Vision is capable of, check out this video.
To experience Dolby Vision on Xbox One S or Xbox One X
To start enjoying this feature today, you need a TV that supports the latest version of Dolby Vision and a Premium Netflix subscription. There are over 400 hours of content available in Dolby Vision on Netflix including Altered Carbon, Stranger Things, Marvel’s The Punisher, Lost In Space, and many more (just look for the Dolby Vision™ logo).
To setup this feature, first check if you have a compatible TV by going on your Xbox to the 4K TV Details page under Settings. You can also check the full list of supported TVs here (if you connect your Xbox to an AV Receiver, check the compatible AVRs here). Next enable Dolby Vision on your console by navigating to Settings -> Display and sound -> Video output -> Video modes -> Allow Dolby Vision. Then log in to your Netflix account (premium subscription required) and pick your favorite Dolby Vision enabled title. Last, but certainly not least, enjoy!
