If you’ve recently bought a new TV from either brand, it’s about to get better.

If you’ve been paying attention to high dynamic range formats in TVs lately, you might recognize the name HDR10+. No, not just HDR10 — the plus is an important differentiator. Created by Samsung, HDR10+ is a competitor to Dolby Vision and HLG that contains dynamic metadata. Translation: filmmakers can control the dynamic range of their movies down to the frame.

Owners of recent Samsung and Panasonic 4K TVs should start receiving a software update soon that brings support for HDR10+, so long as they were made this year. While there isn’t a ton of supported content available just yet, 20th Century Fox has announced that it will begin encoding new films and content with the format, announcing its planned schedule in the coming weeks.

In addition, all of Amazon’s Prime HDR selection is already available in HDR10+, so you don’t have to wait around for 20th Century Fox — if you have Prime Video, you can already take advantage of the format on your TV.
