Netflix is set to improve the quality of the audio on its streaming service. The optimised quality is aimed at viewers with streaming boxes, soundbars and surround sound systems.
Audiophiles and Netflix fans rejoice. The behemoth streaming service is improving its audio quality. As you can probably imagine, it will depend on your internet connection.
To make this happen, the company are using the same principle that governs its adaptive video streaming process. This means that video quality (or in this case, the audio) will improve according streaming bandwidth.
The good news is that it shouldn’t soak up too much additional bandwidth. The simply titled “high-quality audio” should only require half a megabit per second of extra bandwidth.
The quality of the audio adjust automatically, dependent on your connection. The base rate is 192Kbps, topping out at 640 Kbps.
