Netflix releases 'The Witcher' in 4K Dolby Vision & Dolby Atmos

20 Dec 2019 | Rasmus Larsen |

Netflix has today released one of its most ambitious projects to date. The Witcher, based on the fantasy novels by Poland's Sapkowski, is now streaming in 4K Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos.  

The Witcher on Netflix

You may know the hugely successful game series based on Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski's books. Today, Netflix has released its series adaptation of The Witcher and expectations are, understandably, sky high. The Witcher is one of Netflix's most expensive and ambitious projects to date. Many are already comparing the fantasy series to HBO's hugely successful Game of Thrones but Netflix insists that it is completely different; an "epic tale of fate and family". - "Based on the best-selling fantasy series, The Witcher is an epic tale of fate and family. Geralt of Rivia, a solitary monster hunter, struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts. But when destiny hurtles him toward a powerful sorceress, and a young princess with a dangerous secret, the three must learn to navigate the increasingly volatile Continent together," said Netflix.

The Witcher Netflix

The Witcher is now available on Netflix globally. Viewers with a compatible TV or sound system can experience it in 4K resolution with Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos audio. The full first season comprising 8 episodes is available. The company has timed the release to coincide with the Christmas holidays in many regions and it clearly has very high hopes for its new TV series. With HBO's Game of Thrones behind us, can The Witcher step in to take its place as the next epic fantasy TV series? We'll see.
