“Netflix and Dolby share the same vision for delivering spectacular experiences to consumers,” said Giles Baker, Senior Vice President, Consumer Entertainment Group, Dolby Laboratories. “With consumers already able to experience Dolby Vision on Netflix, it was a natural continuation of our partnership to bring a new level of immersive audio with Dolby Atmos to Netflix members around the world.”
Dolby Atmos delivers an immersive sound experience that places and moves audio anywhere around you, including overhead, so that viewers feel as if they are in the middle of the story. Leveraging the high-dynamic range innovation that powers Dolby’s most advanced cinemas around the world, Dolby Vision transforms the TV experience in the home by delivering greater brightness and contrast, as well as a fuller palette of rich colors using dynamic metadata and Dolby’s intelligent display mapping engine in each playback device.”
With the addition of Dolby Atmos support on Netflix, we are enabled to deliver the most cutting-edge experience to our global members and provide another creative tool to the artists,” said Greg Peters, Chief Product Officer, Netflix. “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.”
The combined Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision streaming experience from Netflix will be available on 2017 LG OLED TVs pending an update soon.
Today on Xbox, consumers can access Dolby Atmos content when connecting their console to a Dolby Atmos enabled home theater system, TV or soundbar, or via headphones using the new Dolby Atmos for headphones feature available for purchase through the Dolby Access app in the Xbox Store. The 2017 lineup of LG OLEDs already have built-in Dolby Atmos capabilities that create an immersive soundscape around you without the need to connect to an external Dolby Atmos enabled system.
Over time, Netflix plans to roll out support to additional devices, making the Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision combined experience more accessible to Netflix members around the globe.

Dolby Atmos Coming to Netflix
Starting with Okja: Adding More Dimension to Storytelling

Imagine watching your favorite TV show or movie without the sounds that truly moved you and made you feel the impact of each moment. In creating an immersive atmosphere, sound is just as important, if not more important, than the picture itself. It is a critical tool to extend the storytelling beyond the screen and draw audiences into the narrative. I’m pleased to announce the addition of Dolby Atmos® support on Netflix beginning with Okja, a critically praised film directed by Bong Joon Ho that recently debuted at the Cannes Film Festival, and is available globally on Netflix starting today.

Much like how 4K and HDR bring more stunning and realistic visuals to the screen, Dolby Atmos delivers captivating sound that places and moves audio anywhere in the room, including overhead, to bring entertainment to life all around you, all in the comfort of your own living room. Imagine being surrounded by the sounds of the scene you’re watching – an airplane passing overhead, or the subtlety of the wind rustling tree leaves all around you. Having the extra dimension of immersive audio is a game changer for experiencing the realism of a story, and feeling like you’re a part of it.

We’re happy to begin providing this cutting-edge experience to our members and to the artists we work with, providing another creative tool to help them bring their vision to life in a more meaningful way for viewers. To better explain this concept from a creative point of view, here are a few words from Director Bong after he heard the Dolby Atmos mix for Okja:

In addition to Okja, Dolby Atmos support will also be available for a select number of titles coming soon. We expect the catalog to grow over time. The initial set of titles we plan to offer in this format include:

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

Many of these titles will also be available in 4K and HDR, delivering spectacular visuals to complement the immersive sound.

Today, Dolby Atmos streaming is supported on Microsoft’s Xbox One and Xbox One S. Support for 2017 LG OLED TVs is coming soon. On the Xbox, you can get this experience when your console is connected to a Dolby Atmos enabled home theater system, TV or soundbar, or via headphones using the new Dolby Atmos for headphones feature available for purchase through the Dolby Access app in the Xbox Store. The LG OLED TVs have built-in Dolby Atmos capabilities that create a 360° sound field around you without the need to connect an external sound system.

Over time, we plan to add support to more devices, making the experience more accessible to Netflix members everywhere. For more information on Dolby Atmos requirements on Netflix, see here.

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.
