How to watch Netflix with surround sound

Make sure your surround sound system is set up and working as normal. Providing this isn’t the first time you’ve used the speakers, it’s fair to assume they’re working fine.


Open Netflix on whatever device you use. There isn’t any device that’s better than the others, but a smart TV is definitely the easiest way forwards.

Click on the “audio and subtitles” menu at the top of the screen.


In this menu, click on audio, and change from stereo to surround sound 5.1.
