I have onkyo atmos receiver and atmos setup, when I play the blu Ray DVD , atmos is activated and work fine but it’s not working on Netflix. I have tried 2020 roku, 2020 fire stick which support atmos but still I am not getting any atmos content, it’s still coming 5.1 for streaming apps.

Anyone know which device I can use to get atmos from Netflix ? Or am I doing something wrong here.

Which models of Roku and Firestick are you using to stream? Roku Ultra will get you atmos passthrough. Different models of Firestick support atmos from Netflix. Here is a list from Netflix but not sure if updates have changed things.

Does your Netflix app indicate it (the particular movie) is available in DD+ / Atmos?

No it’s only show 5.1, I tried same movie on my friends TV (Sony and using Sony Netflix streaming ) and it’s showing atmos as audio

Different device apps can have different capabilities. Is yours plain old Dolby Digital or Dolby Digital Plus (DD+) ? (do you have an avr that can tell you which you're processing?)

Yes, and sometimes atmos is locked out even in 4K if HDR is not on. It’s all a mess.
