Netflix Offers Spatial Audio and Increases Number of Devices for Premium Plan

By Jessica Lerner 

Netflix has announced new features to the Premium plan at no additional cost for users.

The streamer now offers spatial audio, which allows users to can enjoy best sound experience currently available.

Spatial audio “brings an immersive, cinematic sound experience on any device with no additional equipment required — and now it’s available on more than 700 of our top-watched titles, including Stranger Things, The Watcher, Wednesday, and Knives Out: Glass Onion,” according to a Netflix blog post.

Spatial audio will be added to popular new titles as soon as they’re released, including You, Your Place or Mine, Luther: The Fallen Sun, and Tour de France.

This capacity will be added to additional technologies Netflix already supports, including 4K, HDR, Dolby Atmos, and Netflix Calibrated Mode.

The streamer is also increasing the number of download devices for Premium users from four to six, allowing them to stream Netflix on their devices whenever and wherever they like.

These new offerings come on the heels of the company detailing its password-sharing crackdown.

Since password sharing has long been a problem, Netflix launched a number of initiatives to address the problem in 2022.

The company recently announced it would roll out paid sharing “more broadly” later this quarter.
