Step 1 – The right device for Disney Plus
If you’re watching Disney Plus on the computer you have to take note that if you’re streaming it via your browser (Chrome, Firefox). You will not be able to enjoy any 5.1 surround sound
All browsers only support 2.1 audio.
The PC/Mac solution with 4 simple steps:
- Press the Windows key on your keyboard.
- search and open the Windows Store.
- Search for Disney Plus app in Windows Store.
- Install and sign-in.
If you’re doing this on a Mac, simply go to the App Store and install the Disney+ app.
We open up the same movie Marvel Studios Hawkeye on Disney Plus on both browser and Disney App
The left screenshot is on Google Chrome which does not feature any available audio formats.
But on the right screenshot which is opened on the Disney Plus Windows app, you will notice that it is indicated with Dolby Atmos.
Phones, Tablets, TVs, and Projector
If you’re watching Disney Plus on your phones, Table, and projectors. Chances are the device itself does not support 5.1 audio or Dolby Atmos.
If you’re on a TV, there are many TVs out there that support Dolby Atmos. But you’re here because you want decent audio for your movies and TV in-built speakers are just not going to cut it.
We will recommend finding a home theatre system that supports Dolby Atmos.
Step 2 – Finding the movie that has surround sound
Please note that not every single movie or series on Disney Plus supports Dolby Atmos.
Unfortunately, there is no easy way, you have to click into each title to find out.
For example, the X-men cartoon series from the 90s do not have 5.1 or Dolby Atmos.
Newer movies or series often support 5.1 surround and Dolby Atmos.
But not all of them support Dolby Atmos. An example would be the X-Men movie which was released in the year 2000, the movie is shown that there are 5.1 surround but not Dolby Atmos.
