When it comes to enjoying your TV shows and movies, obviously video quality plays a big role in determining your experience, but let’s not forget about audio quality as well. After all, there is a reason why many cinemas use high-end audio equipment, and why there are many who don’t mind spending that money to upgrade their own home entertainment systems as well.
The good news for those who believe that audio is just as important as video is that Netflix has announced some changes that they’ll be making to their platform, in which they will be giving their shows a bit of an audio upgrade. Simply dubbed “high-quality audio”, this feature is meant to help deliver better quality audio for your TV shows to make it sound closer to what the creators of the shows intended it to sound like.
According to Netflix, “Today we’re excited to announce a new feature, high-quality audio, which takes our sound quality to another level. We gave it this straightforward name because it fits: high-quality audio delivers audio that sounds closer to what creators hear in the studio, so every little detail is captured for a richer, more intense experience.”
That being said, hardware obviously plays a big role as well. If you’re relying primarily on the speakers built into your TV, it might not be as impactful compared to if you had proper dedicated speakers, but regardless this should still be good news for most Netflix customers anyway.
