Netflix does support HDR, Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos, but has some disadvantages compared to Apple TV:
- Always 60 Hz. All 24 Hz content will be converted to 60 Hz. Some older TV's (like 2016 LG TV's) do not support Dolby Vision in 60 Hz mode.
- Always Dolby Atmos. 5.1 content will only use 5.1 speakers while others stay silent. No upmixing possible unless you switch to 5.1 uncompressed in Xbox settings manually.

I have no idea about Amazon Prime but I assume they have the same limitations as Netflix because these are true for all Xbox apps.
Netflix also always works in HDR (or Dolby Vision) mode. So SDR content is send as an HDR signal to your TV and does not use your SDR preferences.

Is it still the case when playing back 4K UHD HDR Blu rays with 24hz selected that the colour space is BT2020 RGB? Is this negatively impacting the colour accuracy?

I haven't heard about this (I'm fairly new) - did you have a link you could share?


When trying to consider a purchasing an xbox as a blu-ray player decison, I've been struggling to find a 'current-state'. It looks like there was historically quite a few problems that have been fixed up until a few months ago - but I wasn't aware of any current major issues.

Less you find, the better the situation.

I’ve been using my one S as a blu Ray player for a while and that’s the one thing it does without issues. The unit can bitstream properly and the video looks good.

Not sure if this is what you're referring to, but there was a color decoding issue that was fixed a while back by a firmware update.
