Cheapest device I can buy for Netflix Dolby Atmos

11
Posted 20th Mar
Can't believe I need to purchase an Xbox console just to get Dolby Atmos while playing Netflix. I have a 2018 Samsung nu7500 and a Samsung HW N850 soundbar and I still don't get Dolby Atmos through the Netflix app on my TV. I'm not sure if it's a issue with Samsung or Netflix but I've been advised to get an Xbox console or apple tv 4k box or nvidia shield to get Dolby Atmos

what's my cheapest way around this please?
would my Amazon 4k firestick do?
can't see it on the Netflix website as being a supported device to get Dolby Atmos

Looks like I'm going to have to fork out on an Xbox console then doesn't it. At the price they go for I might as well purchase one of them over the apple TV

Unbelievable that a TV that cost me £800 doesn't support Dolby Atmos through the Netflix app. Very surprised that the Amazon stick and Nvidia shield doesn't either

I think it’s all down to licensing

There’s always something missing
Pretty sure the Amazon Cube supports Atmos on Netflix.

That's interesting. Definitely something I will look into. Thanks

After looking at reviews on Amazon it seems as if it may support Dolby Atmos Netflix . Some are saying it doesn't but some of the most recent reviews are saying it does

I’ve got one down stairs, just don’t have time to check. If I manage will let you know.
Any particular titles you’d like me to check?

Dolby Atmos is just an extra layer of positional information on top of TrueHD sound file, so if you only have front speakers and not rear/side/top ones then I wouldn't be bothered.

I have Samsung n850 which has forward side top speakers. I also have some rear speakers purchased separately
