Netflix is introducing spatial audio to hundreds more titles for premium members only

Last sum­mer, Net­flix launched a spa­tial sound sys­tem that requires no spe­cial equip­ment. After debut­ing the tech­nol­o­gy on sev­er­al titles, includ­ing the fourth sea­son of Stranger Things, Net­flix is rolling out the tech­nol­o­gy to a wider range of titles.

How­ev­er, you need to be a pre­mi­um mem­ber to use it. Accord­ing to the com­pa­ny, more than 700 high­ly rat­ed titles, includ­ing “The Watch­er,” “Wednes­day,” and “Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mys­tery,” already have space audio available.

A Space Audio badge on a show or movie makes it clear whether the title sup­ports that for­mat. Also, if you search for “space audio”, a list of com­pat­i­ble titles will be dis­played. In the future, you will be able to watch more series and movies with space audio enabled, includ­ing You, Your Place or Mine, Luther: The Set­ting Sun, and Tour de France.

Net­flix has part­nered with Sennheis­er to adopt 2ch spa­tial audio tech­nol­o­gy “Ambeo”. It is specif­i­cal­ly designed for inte­grat­ed stereo speak­ers installed in lap­tops and tablets. 

Net­flix says spa­tial audio should work well on TVs that aren’t too far from the view­er and on cell phones with stereo speak­ers. Spa­tial audio will also pro­vide a more immer­sive expe­ri­ence for those using headphones.

Start­ing today, pre­mi­um mem­bers will be able to take advan­tage of fea­tures that are espe­cial­ly use­ful for those who watch Net­flix series and movies on the go and on mul­ti­ple devices. You will be able to down­load titles from 4 dif­fer­ent devices to 6 dif­fer­ent devices. 

This gives ad-sup­port­ed mem­bers 6 more devices to down­load shows and movies from.
