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

I found out yesterday that if you have Verizion Fios Quantum set top boxes, they support Atmos in Netflix. I have the Samsung 65 inch NU8000 and I signed into my account just see if it had Atmos because I exhausted all of my HDMI connection options. I selected the Punisher and Atmos was in the title section. I listend to it on my new Nakamichi Shockwafe 9.2.4 that I just picked up this past Thursday at Best Buy and it sounded amazing! I bought an Apple TV 4K also and was getting nothing. I'm happy now that my Fios gives me Atmos and the Apple TV will be going back to Best Buy today.

Well don't know if its a bug but since today I have Atmos on the internal Netflix App of my Q85R TV. I was that surprised that I did a short video. You can see the Atmos batch on Netflix as well as the message on my Q90R soundbar.
@primaliar: can you tell what firmware version is on your Samsung TV?

Thanks again for mentioning 'Punisher' - found it on Netflix 4K/HDR/Atmos - viewing via Apple TV4K, looks like this will be a brilliant series - binging as we speak and it's your fault I'm not outside attending to some of my household chores!

Sure. Here we go. Here you see als one of the problems I have. The soundbar doesn't turn on itself. I have all the time to do this in the menu. Think it's firmware of TV related as the "live TV terestrial" appears also all the time again even when I delete it...
Here an other example:

It is available from today.
Bought Q60 TV and HW-Q90R soundbar yesterday. Was disappointed to found out Netflix didnt support Dolby Atmos in Samsung TVs. But to my suprise today, Dolby Atmos (DA) is now enabled. There are many DA content on Netflix. So glad about it.

I wish there was something more official where we could see exactly what models. It appears 2019 and up (no 2018 via firmware?)
But also Netflix don't list it under supported devices
