Netflix has announced that it has improved the sound quality of all content in the Apple TV 4K app.
By updating the tvOS app, Netflix offers a quality “much closer to that created in the recording studios”.
Netflix had already added Dolby Atmos support on Apple TV 4K in 2018, but no further improvements are made to the audio content on the platform:
“Today we are pleased to announce a new feature, high-quality audio, which takes our sound quality to another level. We have given this simple name because it adapts to what it offers: high-quality audio offers audio closer to what the creators listen to in the studio, so every little detail is captured for a richer and more intense experience.”
Furthermore, the new high-quality audio is adaptive, which means that even if you have limitations on the device or bandwidth, you will still get the best possible audio quality.
The company explains that most devices that support 5.1 or Dolby Atmos audio are able to receive this better sound quality. Here is the difference between 5.1 and Dolby Atmos quality:
5.1: from 192 kbps up to 640 kbps
Dolby Atmos: from 448 kbps up to 768 kbps (Dolby Atmos is available for Premium plan members)
The update is already available on Apple TV 4K
