Netflix has embraced Dolby's next-generation Atmos sound technology in a bid to create a true theater-like cinematic experience for living rooms across the globe.



Streaming titan Netflix today announced that it will be integrating Dolby Atmos sound quality into key titles across its library of content. Dolby Atmos support debuted today with the release of Okja, and the company aims to match the impressive visuals of 4K HDR with high-end sound quality.


"I'm excited for Netflix members all over the world to be able to get a theater-quality experience in the comfort of their own homes while watching Okja and the other excellent titles to come," Netflix Chief Product Officer Greg Peters said. "Over time, we plan to add support to more devices, making the experience more accessible to Netflix members everywhere."


Consumers now have a range of options to choose from for a cinematic experience in their living rooms. All 2017 LG OLED TVs have recently been enabled with Dolby Atmos support, and Microsoft has recently updated its Xbox One S console, which can play 4K UHD Blu-rays with HDR, with Dobly Atmos support.


Dolby Atmos support will be available for five titles including:


  • Okja (June 28)
  • BLAME! (July 28)
  • Death Note (August 25)
  • Bright (December)
  • Wheelman (2017)
