Forum
tvOS and Apple TV Apps

Hello
I have connected my Apple TV 4k to the Samsung 950n Soundbar. The Soundbar supports Dolby Atmos
Wich Apps supports dolby Atmos on Apple TV? If you are watching an apple Original using Audiodescription, is the rest of the sound played in dolby atmos?
Thank you for your answer

Most apps carry atmos content now, Disney, Apple TV Plus, Netflix, Amazon Prime, etc. You might have to go into the settings on your Samsung TV to turn on passthrough in the audio settings to get it to work properly.

Sadly, as far as I know, audio description removes surround sound. It seems rare to find even 5.1 surround with an audio description track. Seems daft, I know, as audio is so important to us.

Saying that, head tracking and spacial audio seems to work with audio description on using the AirPods Pro and max in Disney and Apple TV plus, so it may well be in Atmos.
