    Thanks.

    When you look at the preview screen (Star Wars - before you play the movie), it just says HD & 5.1. On my Sammy it says 4k HDR & 5.1.

    I'm going to see if I have wrong settings somewhere. Im using the 2015 Shield if that makes a difference. Im sure other 4k HDR films play fine.

    Cheers !!

    It's in dolby digital, so will separate the voices and just play them through the centre speaker. If your used to standard 2 channel sound that's getting played through all speakers then it will sound much quieter.

    Can you change the settings on the tv and turn dolby dolby off if you don't like it.

    Apple employees must still be working who do the push updates then. :)

    Not watched that, but interested to watch it and see what you're talking about.

    Yeah this is true, but The Mandalorian is just on another level for quietness, its extremely low sounding and audio quality is poor overall.

    All content for me is showing 5.1 and some stuff is better, Toy Story 4 was pretty loud and clear without having to turn up the volume. Do you know what audio I should get with Atmos content for people that don't have Atmos equipment, would it convert it to something like DD+ ?

    Atmos isn't available right now because of the bandwidth restrictions but when it is on there I believe it comes through a dobly digital plus signal.

    Right now it's standard dolby digital 5.1 (if your device is can do it) or stereo.

    Im not 100% sure on this.

    I have a Yamaha YSP2700 soundbar which can do most audio apart from Atmos, all content on D+ are saying 5.1, so as you say likely a low quality DD 5.1, so hopefully when they max out the bandwidth again I should get something higher quality like DD+.

    Unfortunately unless my ears can tell I never really know what I'm getting, as my soundbar just labels everything as PCM from the Apple TV.

    Yeah Atmos will not show at the moment for any Disney+ content, I've tried loads of stuff with it labelled. It appears some of the 5.1 stuff is quite low bitrate too.

    Netflix and AppleTV content makes Dolby Atmos pop up on my soundbar so I know it's still working my end.

    The first day I watched guardians galaxy 1 the sound was really great but then seems lower quality the next day when I watched guardians 2.

    must be these restrictions on bandwidth.

    Is that from the Apple TV box?, mine just labels audio as PCM, but perhaps if I had atmos it would be different.

    Nah, AppleTV app on my LG. Dolby Atmos pops on the soundbar LED with their content for me.

    I'm getting Dolby Atmos via ATV4K when using ExpressVPN's mediastreamer.

    My soundbar Sony HT-ST5000 shows Dolby Atmos - LPCM 48khz. Shows Dolby Digital Plus without using it.

    One thing that is a little annoying about Disney and something I've even noticed on Netflix, the content on a kids profile seems to filter out movies it shouldn't. On Disney you can't find Finding Dory or Cars 3 on kids profile.

    I wasn't able to find a way to change sound in the Disney app but there is an option through Roku's settings to level the sound which seems to have helped.

    Just signed up to Disney+ and set PayPal s my payment method. I selected the yearly option... Has anyone else done this and found they charge £1 to your PayPal account? Why do they charge the £1? I've looked on their FAQ's and don't remember them saying this would be done.... Is it a charge for using PayPal?

    A nominal charge like that is often used to confirm the payment method is valid. I don't know if that's the case here or not.

    I'm working my way through this list each night. Worth noting not every movie is on Disney Plus yet as I found out tonight. The Incredible Hulk isn't on Disney yet but can be watched on NowTV.

    Universal probably still own the rights?

    I didn't realise that not all were there, I have been watching 1 movie each evening after dinner.

    I'm still really impressed with the selection and quality. It's going to take me so long to get through them all and they are all like 2 hour or more, which is great.

    My favorites so far are guardians of the galaxy 1 and thor ravnorok. Both were great.

    Appears to be the case. I found this a little further down the webpage.

    So while I've managed to watch The Incredible Hulk tonight via NowTV, the Spiderman films aren't currently being streamed anywhere, I know Homecoming was once on NowTV, but that seems to have expired. The good part is I'm about 11 movies away from the first Spiderman movie, so plenty of time to prepare but it does mean I'm going to have to buy it.

    @imginy which order are you watching them in? If any? I'm opting for the year the movies take place. So far I love the Iron Man movies (2 more than 1) but he's probably my favourite character and I quite enjoyed Captain Marvel.

    Tomorrow night I'll be moving onto Thor.
