Netflix supports streaming with spatial audio to give you an immersive surround sound experience. Requirements and titles compatible with spatial audio will vary based on your streaming device. To learn more about how to watch Netflix with spatial audio, select your streaming device below:
Netflix uses Sennheiser AMBEO technology to enhance stereo audio with an immersive surround sound experience that is compatible with all devices, all streaming plans, and does not require surround sound speakers or home theater equipment.
If you do not have surround sound speakers, spatial audio is enabled automatically when watching a compatible TV show or movie using stereo audio.
Spatial audio enhances stereo audio on compatible titles. If you see surround sound icons such as or next to the title's description, spatial audio will not be enabled because your device is requesting 5.1 or Atmos.
Not all titles or every season of TV shows are available with spatial audio. For a list of compatible titles, enter “Spatial Audio” in the Netflix search bar. Unsupported titles will play using standard stereo audio.
