Get the best of Disney+ with Dolby Atmos
Dolby Atmos® is available all over Disney+ on a range of titles, from classic films to brand new content fresh out from Disney studios or even third-party content. You can enjoy a variety of spatial sound experiences with your Disney+ subscription wherever you are, whenever you like. With Dolby Atmos, cinema comes to you.
Disney is close to many people’s hearts. You might have a favourite film you’re thinking of right now that you don’t think could be improved. But listening to it in Dolby Atmos adds even more sparkle. Elevated from the already impressive surround sound experience, Dolby Atmos lets creators place sound effects, music, and dialogue anywhere they want within 3D space. It’s like being inside the worlds created by Disney right in your living room. It’s a night and day difference.
Think about this for a second. If you type Ursula, Little Mermaid into Google, the first thing that pops up is “Why is Ursula so evil?” Well, if you thought she was evil in your stereo headphones, wait until you hear her in Dolby Atmos on Disney+. It brings a whole new meaning to “Under the Sea” when the audio immerses you in the dark depths with an (albeit glamourous) evil squid. Did you know she’s a squid? The best sounding squid ever.
There’s all kinds of content available on Disney+ in Dolby Atmos. Most new titles are likely to have it. As well as bringing new dimensions and more life to the next generation of animation, documentaries, educational entertainment, and film, Disney+ unlocks historical moments for all ages, as we saw — and heard — with Peter Jackson’s acclaimed Beatles documentary, Get Back. It shed new light on their creative process, personal interactions, and, finally, the breakup of the Fab Four. Viewers are transported into Apple Studios with the band with a little help from Dolby Vision® and Dolby Atmos.
Disney+ adds new titles in Dolby Atmos on a regular basis, so you can discover new content optimised for the best possible audio experience in the comfort of your own living room, home cinema, or even on the go.
How to get the best Dolby Atmos experience on Disney+
Watching Disney+ content in Dolby Atmos is simple. You just need a subscription to Disney+ and a way to experience Dolby Atmos sound: a TV enabled with Dolby Atmos, a soundbar, or a speaker setup enabled with Dolby Atmos. While you scroll through the catalogue of available content, just look for the Dolby Atmos badge in the information listing.
You can stream Dolby Atmos content on Disney+ using your TV’s built-in operating system, or you can also use a compatible gaming console like the Xbox S/X series or a set-top box. Make sure you use high-quality HDMI cables to connect your devices. You can also stream wirelessly from your laptop or mobile using, for example Chromecast or Air Play.
With these elements in place, you’ll get the most immersive experience from your Disney+ subscription. Enjoy the audiovisual delights, the layers of sound placed all around, above, and below you. It’s a spatial sound environment design that puts you at the centre of it all. What are you waiting for? Let us help you get started with our personalised interactive setup guide.
