There is a high probability that what you are being told is the case in Spain. It has been common for the streaming services to have been capping their bandwidth during the COVID-19 lockdowns, particularly in the EU and although most services are back to normal in other locations throughout the EU, it could be the case that the Spanish authorities have requested that bandwidth still be reduced there?Hi All
I was told from Amazon Prime Espana that currently they are not offering even uhd/4k content for Spanish prime customers never mind Dolby vision or atmos content due to Spanish government restricting internet speeds due to Covid 19 situation
Don’t know whether this is true or not.
Maybe I am wrong to say this but i think HDR10+ is on it's last legs Dolby Vision seems to be the preferred format for Movie and TV Producers. True Dolby Atmos isn't mainstream to be honest HDR in general isn't truly mainstream as most might have TVs that support it but won't have TVs that truly show it if that makes sense.It wouldn't be at all surprising for Amazon to be re-negotiating with Dolby, and for them to remove Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos until future costs are more financial appealing (to Amazon).
These hard negotiation tactics are becoming more common, and we've seen similar shenanigans happen on various satellite and cable platforms, where channels have been dropped, only to reappear a few weeks later, after negotiations have been concluded and new terms agreed.
Also, Amazon is one of the few streaming services that have adopted HDR10+, rather than DolbyVision. Whilst users of AVForums are very vocal about Dolby Atmos support (I'm a big fan of the format), it's not at all mainstream, and won't be high up the priority list for most 'normal' consumers.
We'll have to wait and see what happens...
I am grateful anytime that Dolby Atmos is part of the Stream or Disk.Maybe I am wrong to say this but i think HDR10+ is on it's last legs Dolby Vision seems to be the preferred format for Movie and TV Producers. True Dolby Atmos isn't mainstream to be honest HDR in general isn't truly mainstream as most might have TVs that support it but won't have TVs that truly show it if that makes sense.
Hopefully they can re-negotiate with Dolby as I think it is a good platform
For the vast majority of Amazon Prime viewers, yes, no loss. And whether having no Dolby Atmos content reduces their competetiveness with other streaming services is a matter for discussion.The fact that they already support HDR10+, makes the cost of Dolby Vision unnecessary. And as much as people would like Dolby Atmos, you can get fantasy sound with other formats. Not a great loss in my opinion.
I agree. For Movies I really want to ee at their best it is Disk Rental, or iTunes Rental.I have much better success renting movies on AppleTV. They DV and DA and are generally cheaper.
I watched Ford vs Ferrari on Prime and was extremely disappointed with watching in basic 5.1
