Hey guys,

I just upgraded my surround system to a 5.1.2 setup. I have a Samsung Q80R TV.

I recently discovered that YouTube TV only broadcasts audio in 2.0. For the channels we want, and to be able to get 5.1 for live TV, it looks like Xfinity/Comcast is the best option.

I'd also like to watch movies with Atmos, and I know Netflix has some content. From what I've read here and other places, that all depends on the device.

Does anyone know if the Xfinity X1 box will support Netflix with Atmos? I'd rather not run multiple streaming devices if I can avoid it.

Thanks much!!

I’m Only guessing but I doubt Comcast offers NF with Atmos.

You can type the model of device you are using into the Netflix Help Center and that will tell you what it can play...

Thanks for the replies. From what I can tell on the Netflix help center, it’s limited to 5.1. I’ll have it setup next week regardless and will check it out to confirm.

Unless I'm missing something, that TV has Netflix built in and it does support Atmos out over HDMI ARC. I get Atmos from Netflix this way.
