Disney+ Hotstar and Dolby Laboratories, Inc. (NYSE: DLB) bring Dolby Atmos® immersive audio for its users on the Disney+ Hotstar app. The streaming platform earlier launched Dolby Vision® support, and has now added Dolby Atmos playback to compatible TVs, AVRs, soundbars, Android smartphones and iOS devices. Dolby Atmos goes beyond ordinary listening by offering a multidimensional, spatial sound experience that will immerse you more than ever in your favorite movies, shows, and more on Disney+ Hotstar.
Since the launch of Dolby Vision in July 2020, the crisp details and deep contrast of Dolby Vision HDR enabled the users of Disney+ Hotstar to catch every emotion flickering across a character’s face in a dark night shot. Now with the multidimensional, spatial sound experience of Dolby Atmos, Disney+ Hotstar puts its users in the middle of the action with stories coming alive all around them.
Commenting on the development, Sidd Mantri, Head of Product – Developing Markets, Disney Streaming, said, “We have collaborated with Dolby on numerous occasions, to bring the latest in technology and innovation on the platform. Disney+ Hotstar users have already enjoyed millions of hours of content in Dolby Vision. We are delighted to add Dolby Atmos spatial audio to further amplify the best-in-class entertainment experience on Disney+ Hotstar. 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.”
