BBC don't at this time have any Atmos content, indeed I don't believe they broadcast or stream in the Dolby Digital Plus stream that would be needed for Atmos. Netflix, Amazon and other streaming services use DD+ with any Atmos content. This may be affected by the reduction in bandwidth currently because of Covid-19.This may have been answered in the previous 114 pages but here goes. I have finally purchased 4 ceiling speakers to complete a 7.1.4 Atmos installation. I already have the other speakers ready to go wired in to an Arcam receiver and 2 further power amps. Finally I have an old HD TV that I simply intend to use for testing purposes until the final save for the UHD TV that will replace it.
My questions are -
1 How/where do I source an Atmos film trailer to test out the audio and how do I play this through the receiver.
2 More long term how will I view/stream Atmos TV/films when I upgrade to a modern TV? I don't want to buy discs, I will never use any Sky product, and I'd prefer not to pay (but that might not be an option!) Is anything on BBC iplayer currently streamed with Atmos or will this come in the future? What about Freeview content?
To get the best Atmos experience you will need to get discs, either blu ray or UHD that come with either an Atmos or DTS:X soundtrack.
