We have put together a short survey to capture your feedback in terms of what BT can do when you experience home Wi-Fi issues. We would appreciate it if you could take a couple of minutes to complete a short survey. Read more from here, Fix my home Wi-Fi
I asked a year ago and I’m hoping something‘s changed since!
I’m using BT Sport on the following 3 devices -
Xbox One X
Windows 10 PC
… with the Shield being by far the most frequently used. It’s great watching everything in 4K HDR with the funky manager modes etc. but I’m still only getting 2.0 sound.
Am I doing something wrong, or has 5.1 (or Atmos) not yet made it to these devices?
There are no plans to add BT Sport Ultimate to Windows 10, but the other 2 should be OK.
You should get 5.1 / Atmos from the Ultimate channel. It's not available on any of the other channels or content.
Thanks Darren. I’m not getting it at all on my Shield, although Atmos is working perfectly in e.g. Netflix, Plex, Prime Video etc.
I have an ultimate subscription so the big events are working fine in 4K/HDR, just no Atmos (or indeed surround sound of any kind).
Can you suggest a way to resolve this? Would it be worth uninstalling & reinstalling the app? I can’t find anything in settings that might help.
Reinstalling the app won't change anything.
Please launch the app with it set up as it normally would be, and then send me a DM with the BT ID you're logging into the app with. I'll check our logs to see what it reported that it's capable of - you'll only be offered DD+ if the device reports that it's capable.
