Do apps through SkyQ support Dolby Atmos?

Hi, 

 

I know they didn't at the start, but has there been an update since? 

 

Namely Netflix, Amazon, Disney, Paramount, Apple TV. 

 

Thanks.

hi @Luis+Suarez 

 

Netflix - no

Amazon Prime - IIRC Yes - but with the introduction of the new 2 tiers it seems the Standard With Ads no longer has Atmos  on any platform - I don't have the With Ads sub to double check it is does

 Disney + yes.

Paramount + doesn't have Atmos or 4K in the UK on any platform as yet - initially the SKY Q app was PCM 2.0 only but does now have 5.1

Apple TV - I am afraid I don't know but I suspect yes

 

Personally I  recommend using the TV in built apps when available & I use them (or my Fire sticks)

Think so

 

Don't do 24fps though, nor DolbyVision (or HDR10+)

Apple TV on Sky Q is just 2 channel.
