Stranger Things, The Witcher and other Netflix original shows now support spatial audio

Netflix has added spatial audio support to many of its original shows and movies.

Stranger Things, The Witcher, The Adam Project, The Fear Street Trilogy, and Castlevania are among a small selection of Netflix projects that now have spatial sound. The upcoming Resident Evil show will also support it.

Spatial audio, sometimes called 3D audio, helps to increase immersion by creating a “sphere” of sound, allowing noise and effects to be heard from more precise locations, not just on the left or right stereo channels. Importantly, it’s still delivered through a stereo speaker setup, so your normal TV, soundbar, or headphones should work just fine with this new sound system.

Netflix has partnered with Sennheiser to provide spatial sound in movies and broadcast shows, so the streaming giant is definitely working with a well-known company in the sound world.

“Netflix Spatial Audio helps translate the cinematic experience from immersive audio to any stereo, so it’s the creators’ job to bring you to the story no matter what device you’re using.” to watch Netflix,” the streamer said in an update.

To find all of the spatial audio content supported by Netflix, type “spatial audio” in the Netflix search bar to see a list of all the movies and shows that have been updated.

Netflix has said that spatial audio will be rolling out “right now,” so it looks like we can expect more shows and movies to be updated in the future.

Elsewhere, 3D audio in games has become an important part of making next-generation games more impressive and has been a selling point for the PS5.
