I’ve just got the virgin stream box, and subbed to sky sports uhd. Just wanted to check, should this be on Dolby atmos too? Thanks

Hi @daveyglen39 

Not all programs are broadcast in Dolby Atmos. 

Channel 532 (Sky Sports Main Event) and channel 534 (Sky Sports Football) are both currently showing the Everton v Brentford game.  It's in Dolby Atmos on both channels (the dolby atmos generally doesn't kick in during ad breaks)

The current program on channel 533 (Sky Sports F1 UHD) isn't broadcast in Dolby Atmos.

I don't work for Virgin Media.

TNT Sports Ultimate and Sky Sports UHD broadcast in Dolby Atmos - but not always. I'm not aware of any offficial explanation why you can get DA for some football matches but not others.
