With the pandemic, many people would prefer watching movies at home. But many of us want to enjoy a full movie experience with at least 5.1 Dolby Atmos Surround sound for the full Netflix movie experience.
You come to the right article here we will show you how and which movies have 5.1 surround sound.
Step 1 – The right device
Please note that 5.1 surround sound is not supported for those watching a Netflix movie on the browser, browsers only support up to 2.1.
How do we solve this? The answer is simply to install the Netflix app on Windows. (You can press your windows key and type Windows Store, search Netflix, download, and sign-in.)
Here is an example of playing a Netflix movie that supports 5.1 Dolby Atmos audio – G.I Joe: Retaliation
On the left, the browser version of Netflix only supports 3 options while the Windows Netflix App supports so much more and including 5.1 Dolby Atmos surround.
This concept is similar for other streaming services like Disney Plus (Disney+) and Amazon Prime as well.
If you’re watching on TV, you probably need a surround sound system as most TVs only support 2.1 or 2.0 audio (The .0 or .1 means if there is bass).
If you’re using a phone and playing it through the in-built speakers, chances are you will not be enjoying decent audio and there is definitely no 5.1 Dolby Atmos.
If you use a 3.5mm headphone jack it only supports only 2.1 audio as well. However, if you use a 5.1 Bluetooth headphone it might have virtual 5.1 surround sound.
Step 2 – Finding the movie that has surround sound
Step one practically solves the question of finding movies that have 5.1 surround, but we do not want to click into each movie and check one by one.
Here is a faster way, refer to the image below. If it indicates 5.1 it means that the movie has 5.1 surround sound. If it doesn’t it means no.
