    That's good to know. I have been using my Roku Ultra for Amazon viewing, so had not checked in awhile.

    I haven’t been able to stream Dolby Vision on Amazon Prime using a 4K Roku or AppleTV unit. I don’t think Amazon Prime supports that video format yet. Somebody correct me if I’m wrong.

    I just want to add that Vudu only supports Dolby Vision as an app on a 4KATV unit. Roku apparently doesn’t support Dolby Vision.

    Roku’s hardware doesn’t support Dolby Vision, so you will not get DV from any streaming service on that platform.

    Vudu also supports Dolby Vision on our Oled’s Vudu app Crawdaddy. Also on the Xbox 1 Vudu app.

    Amazon Prime doesn't support Dolby Vision on the ATV or Roku - correct. They do support it on selected shows on OLED's "in house" Prime app. That's where I watched Jack Ryan because I wanted to see it in Dolby Vision.

    I love that app. Definitely one is use everyday, sometimes multiple times during the day. Plus I get the alerts on items in my wish list.

    I know what you mean as I just glanced at tonight and ended buying "Raggedy Man" (1981) in HD on iTunes for $4.99.
