Netflix adds support for Dolby Atmos on Apple TV 4K

14 Sep 2018 | Rasmus Larsen |

The latest update of the Netflix app has added support for Dolby Atmos on Apple TV 4K, meaning that Netflix will be ready for the public release of tvOS 12.

Netflix Dolby Atmos

Netflix launched Dolby Atmos in June 2017 but only supported a few devices (Xbox One and LG 2017 OLED) at first. It has now added Apple TV 4K to the list of supported devices.

The update comes a few days ahead of the public release of tvOS 12 this Monday, September 17. iTunes and Vudu will also offer Dolby Atmos. Apple has highlighted Netflix shows in its Atmos section from the beginning so it was fairly clear that Netflix would be one of the launch partners. Amazon started offering Atmos content last month but has not yet commented on support for Apple TV.

Netflix offers movies and shows such as Bright, Lost in Space, Okja, Mudbound, Bright, Godless, Iron Fist, and Dark in the object-based audio format that delivers a more immersive audio experience with overhead sound.


Dolby Atmos


Users are reporting that the Atmos label (Dolby Atmos on Netflix) is now visible in Netflix if you are running tvOS 12 and the latest version of the Netflix app. Iron Fist season 2 has been confirmed to work. Besides the company’s original content, Disney’s Guardians of the Galaxy 2 also includes Atmos – at least in the Nordics.

To get access to 4K, HDR, and Dolby Atmos you must subscribe to the company’s ‘4 Screens + Ultra HD’ plan. An internet connection of at least 3 Mb/s is required.

Apple will release tvOS 12 on September 17 but if you are eager to try it out this weekend you can download the public beta, which has reached ‘golden master’ status, meaning that it is identical to the final public version.
