Hi, I don't get Atmos support (the icon doesn't even appear in the film preview screen, all you get is 5.1) on any of the content on internal Disney+ app running on my QE49Q70R.

 

I know they've reopened Atmos because the same movies on the Disney+ app running on my Nvidia shield 2019 has the Atmos logo.

 

Does anyone else have this problem with the Disney+ app on their Samsung?  I've deleted and reinstalled the app already. Currently running Tizen 1356

Hi there,

 

I am in the UK,  also using Sonos arc and trying to get Dolby Atmos (DD+) through a Roku Streaming Stick plus.  However,  only ever get 5.1 despite getting 4k UHD HDR etc.  Also, do get Atmos on Prime on the Roku  - just not Disney plus. 

Did you do anything special to get Atmos on Disney + on your Roku ? 

 

Many thanks.

I tested my amazon firestick and it works with my Sonos arc thru my Samsung q70

So only way to get dolby atmos on your Samsung is with firestick

Are you based in the UK ?. 

I am trying to decide whether I get an ATV4k or other  streaming device. I have a Roku Streaming stick plus  but that does not give me Atmos either for Disney plus .

I live in Sweden and I can recommend amazon 4k firetv as it give you dolby atmos for your Samsung tv and if you use a vpn you could get all disney features. Easy to install on firetv

Not sure why Samsung cannot push the Disney Plus app developers to ensure that Dolby Atmos can be supported within the app, as they do on other platforms. I'm now using the Disney Plus app on the XBox One S  - connected to my Samsung Q95T tv - to get Dolby Atmos audio streaming to my Samsung HW-Q90R soundbar. It's of course a pain to always switch back and forth between the tv and the XBox. The built-in Netflix an Amazon Prime apps on the Samsung tv do support Dolby Atmos out of the box.

Come one Samsung and Disney, you can do it!
