Arrow Netflix debuts 'high-quality audio'

Netflix debuts 'high-quality audio'; higher bitrate for Dolby Atmos & 5.1 surround

Starting today, Netflix is improving its audio quality. The company is introducing "high-quality audio", which means higher audio bitrate for Dolby Atmos and 5.1 surround.

Users with good speaker systems can now enjoy Netflix movies and TV shows in higher audio quality. Netflix says that it is taking "sound quality to another level".

- "Today we’re excited to announce a new feature, high-quality audio, which takes our sound quality to another level. We gave it this straightforward name because it fits: high-quality audio delivers audio that sounds closer to what creators hear in the studio, so every little detail is captured for a richer, more intense experience. Additionally, if you have bandwidth or device limitations, we’ve made the feature adaptive so that we will deliver the best possible audio to match your capabilities. This is similar to what we already do for video," said Netflix.

The bitrate on 5.1 surround will increase from 192 Kbps to 640 Kbps. The bitrate used to deliver Dolby Atmos will increase from 448 Kbps to 768 Kbps. To enjoy Dolby Atmos you must subscribe to Netflix's 'Premium' plan.
