I would be onboard for this show if for no other reason than the performances of Tom Hardy as the weird, dangerous, and enigmatic James Keziah Delaney. The rest of the show's cast has been good too...

Correct. In fact no streaming app can deliver lossless audio. For that you need a disk or a download of a disk's equivalent file delivered to the display via an HDMI connection.
