How do I use surround sound or Dolby Atmos with Disney+?

Disney+ offers a growing library of content in 5.1 surround sound and Dolby Atmos. Supported audio formats for a given title can be found in the DETAILS section under each title. Disney+ will automatically use the highest-quality audio your system can support.


To enjoy 5.1 surround sound or Dolby Atmos you'll need an audio system compatible with Dolby Digital Plus (for 5.1) and/or Dolby Atmos.


To enjoy the highest quality Disney+ experience, all components should support high-bandwidth digital content, including HDMI cables. For 4K Ultra HD and HDR content, external displays should support HDCP 2.2. Consult with the manufacturer for capabilities of your specific device(s). 

Older audio and video components can impact quality and prevent playback entirely.
