Netflix has expanded spatial audio to over 700 titles but is only available to Premium subscribers. At first, the video streamer rolled out the feature in July 2022 for a small collection of movies and TV shows but is now available for more content.
Netflix Premium subscribers do not need additional setup to enjoy content in spatial audio
Netflix rolls out spatial audio to 700 hundred titles for Premium subscribers who are listening on two speaker-only devices, such as TVs, laptops, and headphones. But this won’t be applied to advanced theater setups that support Dolby 5.1 or Dolby Atmos.
Netflix spatial audio brings an immersive, cinematic sound experience on any device with no additional equipment required — and now it’s available on more than 700 of our top watched titles, including Stranger Things, The Watcher, Wednesday, and Knives Out: Glass Onion.
Netflix’s collaboration with Sennheiser was to convert surround sound mixes into spatial audio that can be played through stereo speakers and headphones. At first, the feature rolled out for Stranger Things but is now available to more titles. Note that spatial audio for Netflix can only be accessed if you are subscribed to the service’s $19.99/month Premium tier.
