Netflix getting Dolby Atmos support for various movies and TV shows
The experience of sound plays an integral part in the delivery of entertainment content through movies and TV shows. Sound is a decisive tool to propagate the story through the mind and senses of the audience. To add to this very context, Netflix is adding Dolby Atmos support to its audio profile starting with Okja, a critically acclaimed movie that made debut at the Cannes Film Festival and is now available on Netflix from today.
Dolby Atmos provides engaging sound by placing it all around the viewer much like 4K and HDR add to the visual stimulation. Immersive audio brings the media consumer as close to reality as it can by surrounding him with the sounds related to the visuals on his screen. This ability to merge entertainment with reality provides a state-of-the-art experience for viewers.
Dolby Atmos support will find its way through additional titles like Blame, Death Note, Wheelman etc. over a period of time. The growing catalogue will help viewers enjoy 4K and HDR videography along with immersive Dolby Atmos audio quality.
As of now, Dolby Atmos capability can be experienced through compatible hardware like Microsoft's Xbox One and Xbox One S with support for 2017 LG OLED TVs waiting in the pipeline. The support for more devices would get added over a period of time. You can check the requirements for Dolby Atmos setup on Netflix here.

The enjoyment of entertainment will be never be the same again with the addition of Dolby Atmos support to Netflix.
