why no Dolby Atmos on samsung Netflix App???


i have Q9FN and HW N850 Atmos Soundbar


when using Netflix App on the TV, i went into Expert Audio Settings and it lets me select "dolby digital +" for audio ouput


the hw n850 sounbar supports Atmos


yet when on netlfix still only get crappy 5.1 sound


ive owned a sony xf9005 recently and their netflix app gives Dolby Atmos sound using "dolby digital +" , yes it is "lossy" dolby atmos but still sounds much better than DD 5.1


so my question is why are Samsung not updating their Netflix App to have Dolby Atmos. i have what is required here, dolby digital + selected on q9fn and atmos capable hw n850 soundbar. this is all thats required for "lossy Dolby Atmos" same as you get on 2018 sony & LG tv's


come on samsung, please sort this out by updating to a atmos capable Netflix APP version. its all thats needed


its bad enough having no DTS after spending £2000 on your tv & sounbar, the very least you can do to keep customers a little bit happier is Fix this one

Oké maby usefull for all the other people

Q70 55" with Q70R soundbar. No possible way to get Dolby Atmos. QLED TV's are not set up to receive it. Spent hours on the phone with Samsung, they finally admitted my tv could not receive Atmos without an eARC. NEVER buying another Samsung product. 


Netflix only does 5.1 atmos

I do but still only shows tv arc on the soundbar, never anything else. Playing Irishman that I know is in Dolby Atmos but still nothing. 


The Samsung app does atmos. Playing atmos videos all the time using the Samsung Netflix app. And going through Q90R soundbar. Getting atmos and netflix app

Well I do with any atmos on netflix and scrolls atmos on soundbar when atmos is playing.

Well I am not on my Q80. I randomly got it for a day for no reason then the next day and ever since only 5.1

I did everything you said, but Dolby digital + is grey, can't choose it says this function isn't available. Have q70 55" tv with q70r soundbar. So frustrated!

Even on Prime Video no Atmos. Soundbar still only says TVARC.

I've tried using both Netflix and Prime from Samsung app. Still showing TV ARC on soundbar Q70r.
