A limited number of titles are available to Netflix basic and mid tiers.
A full list is available by typing spatial audio” into the search bar on Netflix. It already supports 4K, HDR, Dolby Atmos, and its own Netflix Calibrated Mode.
No special equipment is required to receive spatial audio.
The number of download devices is also being extended from four to six.
