Which streaming services for movies/shows support Dolby Atmos?

As technology progresses, streaming services keep striving to enhance user experience. One way this is done is by improving audio quality. Dolby Atmos is an advanced audio technology integrated into some streaming services to change the way we experience sound. Previous formats like stereo and Dolby 5.1 Surround only provides audio in a “flat” sound environment. “Flat” audio formats like stereo and Dolby 5.1 Surround come with limitations. Stereo can only differentiate between sounds perceived to the right or left of the listener, and Dolby 5.1 Surround can make a clear distinction between sounds to the right, left, behind, and in front of the listener. Dolby Atmos, on the other hand, also allows you to hear the height dimension as well. This means you can also experience sounds being projected from above you. By introducing the height dimension into the audio tracks, Dolby Atmos creates a three-dimensional sound environment, allowing sound to move freely around the listener.

Streaming services that enhance the audio experience with Dolby Atmos:

  • Netflix: Netflix is one of the most popular platforms for movies and TV. They have stepped into the future of sound with Dolby Atmos support, allowing viewers to enjoy their favorite movies and series with a soundtrack that moves freely around them.
  • SVT Play: One of the most frequently used streaming platform in Sweden, SVT Play, supports Dolby Atmos. They have a wide range of titles that you can enjoy in this amazing format!
  • Disney+: Home to an extensive catalog of Disney, Pixar, Marvel, and Star Wars titles. Disney + also offers Dolby Atmos support. This means fantastic worlds are not only displayed on the screen but also surround listeners with a premium audio experience.
  • Amazon Prime Video: Amazon Prime Video has integrated Dolby Atmos support for some titles, providing users with high-quality audio in combination with their extensive range of movies and TV series.
  • Apple TV+: For Apple enthusiasts, Apple TV+ offers a range of original programs and movies with Dolby Atmos sound.
  • HBO Max: HBO Max offers titles with Dolby Atmos-compatible sound. Here, you can watch, for example, Game Of Thrones or Superman in the audio format of the future!
  • Paramount+: Paramount+ has also kept up with the trend and can offer several series and movies with Dolby Atmos sound.

However, not all streaming services have upgraded to Dolby Atmos support for their entire catalog, or even parts of it, yet. Three major streaming services that still completely lack Atmos support are Viaplay, Hulu, and Sky Showtime. Instead, these services offer Dolby 5.1, which is an older precursor to Dolby Atmos.

In conclusion

We recommend that you turn to streaming services that support Atmos, such as the 7 streaming services listed above. By supporting Dolby Atmos, these streaming services stand out by offering their users a superior audio experience. To fully benefit from Dolby Atmos, a compatible audio system and playback device are required. Before diving into your next movie night or music listening session, make sure your device and streaming service are ready to deliver an audio experience that gives you something extraordinary.
