Unless you use the Kodi Netflix plugin of course.1. 2017 Shield has never been able to play Atmos on Netflix (4K or otherwise). Nor will it ever be able to unless Netflix allows it according to Nvidia. This is a licensing issue that Nvidia themselves have addressed on their forums as recently as 25 days ago.
Right. I already posted that in the other thread since it only applies to 2017 models.[email protected]
@dabl2, Netflix requires a license the 2017 SHIELDs do not have in order to send Atmos for us to passthrough. We don't control Netflixs decisions so we can't really say Netflix will never enable this on the older SHIELDs, however, we can say the older SHIELDs do not have the license Netflix currently requires.
