High dynamic range (HDR) is the TV industry's hottest buzzword this year, and Netflix is getting involved in a big way with over 100 movies and TV shows boasting the standard coming in the next few months.

The content will be available in both Dolby Vision and HDR, and so will be compatible with Sony and Samsung TVs, and includes mostly Marvel titles plus a couple of movies and standalone series.

Here's the full a select list of titles, which will expand to over 150 hours of material by the end of the year:

  • "A Series of Unfortunate Events"
  • "Bloodline"
  • "Chef's Table"
  • "Hibana"
  • "Knights of Sidonia"
  • Marvel's "Daredevil"
  • Marvel's "Iron Fist"
  • Marvel's "Jessica Jones"
  • Marvel's "Luke Cage"
  • Marvel's "The Defenders"
  • "The Do-Over"
  • Adam Sandler's "The Ridiculous Six"

Netflix has previously announced that "Marco Polo" season 1 is available now in HDR, with "Daredevil" also slated for 2016.

HDR is a 4K-dependent format with much higher contrast than standard HD content, in addition to a broader color palette, and there are two competing standards -- HDR 10 and Dolby Vision.

Meanwhile competitor Amazon is also giving the Dolby Vision/HDR treatment to some of its top titles for 2016, such as "Bosch," "The Man in the High Castle" and "Transparent." It began streaming HDR content in July last year.
