Default Which HDR format do I get?

I'm researching getting my first 4k tv and I'm almost ready to pick one at this point but I'm unsure about the HDR. What I'm looking to do is get a tv that is good for gaming as well as watching movies and shows in good 4k and HDR picture quality. I know that HDR10 is all I need for ps4 pro. Also netflix supports both major formats and amazon prime supports HDR10 and HDR10+ i believe. So I should be fine with HDR10 hopefully. What I'm not sure about is are there certain 4k blu ray discs that only will play in Dolby Vision because I look at the backs of the cases in stores and some say Dolby Vision. Will they work with Dolby Vision only? or will these 4k movies automatically work with whatever format my tv supports? Tv's that have HDR10 only seem to be $500-$1,000 cheaper than tv's that have HDR10 and Dolby Vision so if I can game and watch 4k blu rays on HDR10 only I would prefer that. Also I read that Dolby Vision is kind of ahead of its time right now and a lot of current 4k tv's can't use it to its full potential because most tv's have 10 bit color when Dolby offers 12 bit. I'm sure any HDR format will be a huge jump for me because I'm coming from an old LCD Sanyo 55" 1080p tv.

Well here's the thing. Many people out there have jumped on the Dolby Vision bandwagon ,except me. Here's why. First as of 2019 we have in our 4K tvs 10 bit panels HDR and HDR10+ are 10 bit technology .Dolby Vision on the other hand is a 12 bit technology we don't have 12 bit panels yet but down the road we will .When that is ,is anybody's guess. There is a lot of false information out on Dolby Vision by so called ''experts'' that push Dolby Vision because there is money to be made.Everybody in this industry knows all to well what we call Dolby Vision is a watered down version of Dolby Vision. But as I said there's profit in pushing the Dolby Vision agenda. Without a 12 bit panel you are not seeing true Dolby Vision.Even side by side tests ( DV vs HDR10+) you can't see a difference , but they will tell you ,you can. It's BS and outright lies and they know it. So what your really getting is HDR10+ wrapped a Dolby Vision logo. To be honest I and others have been trying to put this out there , but were met with things like ''this is fake news'' or they throw a lot of high tech babble to make you think they are smart and bury the truth. This also happens with OLED technology and the burn in issue. If you tell a lie enough times people will believe it .So is the case with Dolby Vision. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kvh3geblZY8 This is a link that can help make up your mind. My advice is if there is a TV you want now and doesn't have Dolby Vision, get it ,your not missing out on nothing until a 12 bit panel hits the market and that tv will be an upgrade anyway. Hope this helps.

Dolby vision has an additional advantage Outside of 12 bit color. And that is that Dolby vision is dynamic while HDR10 is static Dolby vision can adjust dynamic range on a frame by frame basis while HDR10 is a fixed format.
Hdr10 is open sourced and part of th UHD specs so All purchased 4K Blu-rays will have Hdr 10 however not all streaming services use HDR10 and not all streaming services use specifically Dolby vision it varies by provider so you may want to look into where you plan on getting the majority of your content from
