Netflix 4K HDR only on Mac computers with a T2 processor

Netflix users will be able to watch Ultra HD content on their computers when Apple releases macOS Big Sur.

It turns out that this option will only be available to a fairly small group of users. The Netflix technical support document states that 4K HDR content will be available only for computers equipped with a T2 processor. Therefore, even if we connect an appropriate external monitor to the computer without this component, we will not be able to use the highest quality. In the case of external monitors, they must be HDCP 2.2 compliant.

Please note that 4K HDR will only be available in Safari. Other browsers will support a maximum of 720p. Additionally, a premium package is required.

The Verge editors say this may be due to video processing into HEVC formations. According to Apple, the above-mentioned chip does it twice as fast as the T1.

The T2 processor is included in the following computers:

  • iMac from 2020
  • iMac Pro
  • Mac Pro from 2019
  • 2018 Mac Mini
  • MacBook Pro from 2018
  • MacBook Air from 2018
