Netflix has just added some awesome new sound technology that comes straight from the cinema.
Dolby Atmos started in cinemas, before coming to the lounge. It's a surround sound technology that adds extra speakers to position sound more accurately around the room. In other words, bullets will sound like they're whizzing by overhead, if that's what happens on-screen.
'Okja' is the first Netflix film to support the tech. It's a critically-acclaimed film that debuted at the Cannes Film Festival. It's available now.
Here's Bong Joon Ho, its director, talking about when he first heard his film in Dolby Atmos.
Other Dolby Atmos films coming to Netflix include 'BLAME!' (28th July), 'Death Note' (25th August), 'Bright' (sometime in December) and 'Wheelman' (at some point this year).
Netflix is also promising that many Dolby Atmos films will be available in 4K HDR, so they should look as great as they sound.
Now, the downside. At the moment, Dolby Atmos on Netflix only works if you watch through an Xbox One or Xbox One S, or one of LG's 2017 OLED TVs. These LG tellies support Dolby Atmos, but if you're watching through one of the compatible Xboxes, you'll need other Dolby Atmos-enabled gear (namely an approved TV, surround sound system or soundbar). Otherwise you won't get the benefit.
Dolby has a list of compatible devices here.
Netflix says it will support more devices soon. For more info, check out its Help Centre.
