BT Sport viewers will be able to listen to this weekend’s Premier League matches with Dolby Atmos via the broadcaster’s app.
The new audio stream will kick off with Brighton’s match against Liverpool.
BT Sport Ultimate customers will be able to experience Dolby Atmos on the BT Sport App on both small and large screens and can be accessed on compatible devices from iOS, Apple TV, Android, Android TV, Amazon Fire TV and Samsung Smart TV. Chromecast, Now TV and Roku will also launch in the coming weeks.
Jamie Hindhaugh, chief operating officer BT Sport, said “The addition of Dolby Atmos audio to our 4K UHD and HDR visuals on the app, provides fans with the best possible audio-visual experience of live sport when they can’t be at the game in person. The richer audio quality will add a whole new dimension to the way that fans experience sport, at home or on the move, and ensure they won’t miss a moment of the action.”
Javier Foncillas, vice president Commercial Partnerships at Dolby Europe added: “Dolby has worked with BT for a number of years and they have been an innovative partner ensuring that they offer sports fans the very best experience.”
