Google has announced it will begin adding support for High Dynamic Range (HDR) videos on YouTube starting today.
Starting today, YouTube users can watch videos in HDR on supported devices, which includes HDR TVs and soon all 2016 Samsung SUHD and UHD TVs. Those who don’t have an HDR-enabled device will still be able to enjoy videos played in their standard dynamic range, but as more HDR devices become available, YouTube will work with its partners in order to enable HDR streaming.

Can't wait to see pewdiepie in glorious HDR.
Maybe they'll actually enable some bitrates that make it worth it at some point.
(I'm actually mostly happy with Youtube's offerings, I just wish you could opt in to higher bitrates for some videos)
