1899 is listed as UltraHD and not DV. Was surprised as it’s a brand new release. Maybe Netflix is trying to save money by not paying the DV licensing fees. Who knows.

I just scrolled through a bunch of shows and you were absolutely correct. Most everything is now being shown in ultra HD 4K. No Dolby Vision nor Dolby Atmos listed for most of these new shows. This is got to be a conscious decision on the part of Netflix. If it’s true, it’s very disappointing. I did just find one show in Dolby Vision and it’s the movie where the crawdads sing. But other than that, there’s not a lot in Dolby Vision. Another one in DV is the new Christmas movie, Christmas with you. That’s in Dolby vision and Dolby Atmos.

I just checked the internal Netflix app on my Sony Bravia, and all those shows are showing in Dolby Vision And Dolby Atmos.

I wonder what’s going on. It’s clearly is an issue with the ATV but whether it’s an Apple issue or a Netflix issue, who knows. But now we have Netflix with no Dolby Vision and prime video with no Dolby Vision through the Apple TV.

I'm in the EU and 1899 is DV here, off course Netflix is quite region specific. Also using a Sony TV but 2017 model. Pity, as 2018 and onward models supported Apple TV app natively.

Oh btw, how smooth is the HDR effect dynamically switching on yours. The lighting change was quite obvious with Disney+ but am seeing with Netflix DV of late. This is with a stable 50Mbps Ethernet line.

1899 was listed as being in DV on my Sony Bravia internal app. And as I said above, even on the Apple TV the show was in DV (as per my TV's settings menu). But the info card on the Apple TV said UltraHDR 4K. Who knows why.

As far as smooth switching, I have never noticed any problems with my setup. I am also on Ethernet but we get a 250Mbps via our internet provider.

One that for me shows DV is enola holmes 2. Stranger things and other shows show ultra hd 4k yet play back in DV. My nvidia shield shows all these programs as DV.

This thought of mine is 100% speculation/guess/thought with no fact…

Now that that’s out of the way, could Netflix be planning to support both Dolby Vision and HDR10+?
I’d be curious if someone with a Samsung television and the new Apple TV is getting HDR10+.

It’s not just the Apple TV my LG TV Netflix app is not playing DV or HDR at the moment just SDR.

Nonsense. This was actual visual observation on my part.

I’m watching The Crown, and it renders as static HDR10 on my Samsung Tv.

Netflix was showing DV label correctly till last night , This morning everything is now showing as UltraHD 4K but playback is still in DV. On other apple devices the labelling is fine , it's just messed up in ATV.

My ATV (2022) is showing UltraHD 4K instead of DV on Netflix. On my LG C1 app, it shows DV regularly. And yes, UltraHD 4K on ATV still plays in Dolby Vision - however, there is no Dolby Atmos (when using AirPods Max, it just has “spatialize stereo” but not Dolby Atmos like in Disney+, Prime Video, Apple TV+ or HBO Max.

Weird.

On my new 2022 ATV the Netflix show Wednesday is in regular 4K, whereas on the old ATV or iPad Pro it’s DV.

I felt right away that image quality is inferior on the new ATV as compared to the 2021 model and wonder now if it’s an app support issue.

It’s playing fine in DV with Atmos on my 2022 ATV, the label does just say 4K Ultra HD though.

Archer is as well one of the shows that's privy to it. It is still listed as Dolby Vision with Atmos. Though, you can still see it in FullHD on other platforms. I've only recently started watching. Since then, it has dropped a little but is still consistently humorous with some particular sections. Of course, before it was Arrested in Development by https://tvcancelrenew.com/tv-status/archer-season-14-or-cancelled-fx-renewal--release-date, Archer was one of the most excellent television series ever. The first episode had me laughing out loud. It's also incredibly quotable, which partially explains why it appears on our site frequently. But it's definitely worth watching.

I’ve got a Sony Bravia connected to ATV 4K 2022. I just setup the new ATV 4K 2022 and installed tvOS 16.1.1, so it is up to date. As seen in my attachments, my Fire TV Cube 3rd gen shows The Crown on Netflix as being DV and AD, and it is actually streamed in those formats. However, my ATV 4K 2022 shows The Crown as Ultra HD 4K, and it is streamed in HDR10.

Definitely a mess up by either Netflix or Apple. My guess it is something stupid that Apple did.

I don’t think Apple did anything, I was using the app and saw the change happen in front of my own eyes which leads me to believe it’s a Netflix server side issue.
I saw someone mention it so went to have a look for myself, upon opening Warrior Nun everything looked normal so took a photo and then as I backed out the icons changed.

That is definitely a possibility. I know some apps take full advantage of features built into tvOS, while others don't. That causes a lot of frustration when certain features/functions are not available in those apps. But on the other hand, Apple is well (notoriously) known for changing the code and features without much warning, and doing that rather often. So it makes it harder for apps to be kept up to date.

Yeah if there had been a more recent tvOS update I’d probably agree but there has been no issue sine since the last update up until this happened.

Well, there are a lot of tvOS apps that are flaky, but the Android TV and Fire OS versions work fine. Apparently developers seem to do better writing the apps for other platforms but have issues with tvOS. You can read into that what you want I guess…
