We also know from a recent published review that the new ATV "upconverts" everything to 4K HDR. Taking something that was not HDR and manipulating it to HDR is what I call Fake HDR...
Okay so they didn’t really suggest anything then. It was your assumption.
Dolby Vision is a form of HDR. The same way HDR10 is a form of HDR. HDR10+ is a form of HDR. HLG is a form of HDR.
Dolby Vision is the superior HDR format. That’s why it sits at the top. When a movie says Dolby Vision, it’s because it supports DV and HDR10.
HDR10 is free. DV requires a licensing fee. The movies with HDR only are from studios that didn’t want to pay the licensing fee or they might have gone all in with HDR10 and HDR10+.
If content is available in DV, it has to be available in HDR10 also. Vudu has been very secretive about why they didn’t want to use HDR10. Probably some complications in the delivery system.
That won’t happen on the Apple TV because the specs clearly state DV and HDR10 support. So if your tv does not support DV, you will get the HDR10 version.
It can get confusing to casual viewers and they should either mention in the description of every movie which format it’s available in or simply add HDR10 next to Dolby Vision at the top.
