TVs in 2016 will make every show you watch look incredible

Are you happy with your TV?
You won't be after you see how much better TVs equipped with HDR technology can be than your old regular flat screen.
HDR technology, which stands for high dynamic range, adds better colors, deeper blacks, and brighter whites to movies and TV shows filmed in HDR.
In the picture below, the TV on the right is one of LG's latest TVs with HDR. The TV on the left is a "conventional" TV. The difference is clear:

The HDR-equipped TV on the right is showing way more colors, like reds, oranges, yellows, blacks, and whites. Meanwhile, the conventional TV on the left is basically showing yellows, whites, and blacks. 
Also, look at the top left and right corners on each TV, and you'll see the HDR TV has deeper blacks, which helps the colors and brighter spots on the screen really pop out. The effect is stunning. 
But don't trash your old TV just yet.
As I mentioned above, it'll only work with content filmed in HDR, which is slightly limiting as much of the content filmed until now has not been filmed in HDR. It's a similar dilemma that 4K TVs are facing, as there's relatively little 4K content to play on them. 
And while we expect that more content will be filmed in HDR (and 4K) as time goes on, we wouldn't be surprised if a new technology that looks even better crops up just as more HDR content is available.
