Atmos on netflix that isnt "real" atmos


Novice Member
Im sure this has been covered a thousand times but after doing some research it seems that only devices that can "natively" support atmos will be lossless and play "real" atmos.For example ,if i play netflix atmos content using the app on my samsung tv connected to my q-950 soundbar the display on the soundbar shows dolby atmos ,but am i right in saying that its "lossy downgraded" atmos because the TV itself isnt atmos enabled ? If this is the case then i would need a lg oled or equivalent atmos enabled TV

depends what you consider "real" atmos...... If its a soundstage that includes ceiling channels then yes netflix (along with disney/apple etc) does have real atmos. If its a completely lossless soundtrack then yes blu ray is your only answer.
