Disney+ Hotstar and Dolby bring Dolby Atmos immersive audio for Disney+ Hotstar app users



Disney+ Hotstar

Disney+ Hotstar collaborated with Dolby Laboratories to bring an immersive audio experience to Disney+ Hotstar app users through Dolby Atmos. With this announcement, Disney+ Hotstar also becomes the first Indian OOT app in India to integrate Dolby Atmos audio technology.

A couple of weeks back, Hotstar was spotted testing this new feature on its Android app and today, the company has officially announced the feature. The Dolby Atmos playback is now supported on compatible TVs, AVRs, soundbars, and Android and iOS devices.

However, this feature is only available to Disney+ Hotstar Super and Premium subscribers. The feature is available for all paid users regardless of the plan, so even if you have Rs. 149 plan, you can experience Dolby Atmos. Select movies and TV shows that support Dolby Atmos technology will show the Dolby badge on the title listing page.

Disney Plus Hotstar rolls out Dolby Atmos Support

Dolby Atmos is a surround sound technology that allows up to 128 audio tracks and the associated spatial audio description metadata to be distributed for optimal, dynamic rendering to loudspeakers. This gives a theatre-like experience on your device.

All you need to have is a Dolby Atmos-supported phone, TV, soundbar, etc. Since most of the mid-range devices come with Dolby Atmos support nowadays, so this should not be an issue.

“What excites us most is the differentiated headphone experience we have now delivered to Dolby Atmos-enabled devices (including mobile) for a truly superlative experience on the go. We look forward to collaborating with Dolby and continue pushing the boundaries to deliver cutting-edge innovation to our users,” said Sidd Mantri, Disney Streaming Head of Product, Developing Markets.
