I almost give this a thumbs down. Dolby Vision is a video STANDARD. Much like Dolby Atmos or DTS:X, they are standards. We don't need another 'format war' to weaken what we got and accelerate the demise of physical media. You never saw substitutes for DTS-HD MA or Dolby TrueHD, why do so for this because it is a video standard as opposed to audio? I sort of doubt my Vizio TV that does HDR, DV and HLG will get a firmware to support the Plus format, thus making it inferior and incompatible.

Great, Universal! Barely anyone will see them in HDR10+ since no other brand of TV seems to care to upgrade. As Krawk accurately pointed out, Samsung missed the boat and sunk a bunch of money into a technology because as per usual, they were too cheap to license the STANDARD being used.

You think these folks would remember how HD-DVD and Blu-ray amounted to loss of money to both crowds because 2 brands butted heads.

What a great marketing ploy... CHECK OUT OUR NEW HDR FORMAT! UNIVERSAL IS COMING ON BOARD. Oh... wait... we aren't even going to be selling 4K BR players in the US...

:facepalm:
