Netflix has announced that it is adding support for Spatial Audio for some of its most popular original shows and movies on all devices. In August last year, the company introduced Spatial Audio for iPhones and iPads.

Spatial Audio gives immersive theatre-like sound. Netflix teamed up with German audio brand Sennheiser to bring AMBEO 2-Channel Spatial Audio to the streaming service for select shows and movies on its platform. 

This feature will be available to all Netflix users without any additional accessories irrespective of their device and Netflix plan. It will be most noticeable with devices that output sound closer to the ears such as headphones and earphones.

Currently, Spatial Audio is rolling out for a few shows including Stranger Things 4, The Adam Project, The Witcher, Red Notice, and more. Subscribers can simply search for ‘Spatial Audio’ in the Netflix app to find all content that supports Spatial Audio.

“Netflix spatial audio helps to translate the cinematic experience of immersive audio to any stereo, so the work creators do to bring you into the story happens no matter what device you use to watch Netflix,“ said Netflix in a blog post

Q: So if it is going to be about original content, it is also then going to be linked I would imagine to more flexibility when it comes to pricing plans because that is what we are seeing happen at least in markets like India. So are you going to be forced to maybe be much more competitive on the pricing side as well?

A: Netflix is only Rs 500 a month here which is consistent with our global pricing.

Q: Amazon is that much for a year, I believe.

A: Yes, but they do not have our shows. They have some content and then there is lots of stuff on YouTube for free. So think of it as, there is free content, there is cheap content and then what we try to do is have great content, have very unique shows with very special things and to make it easy to subscribe and join.
