LG TVs support Spatial Audio with Dolby Atmos

May 2, 2024

LG Electronics (LG) has introduced a new feature on its smart TVs for users who enjoy streaming music. LG Smart TVs, including OLED models and QNED models with Dolby Atmos, are the first TVs to support Spatial Audio with Dolby Atmos from Apple Music.

To celebrate the new feature, LG is offering three months of Apple Music free to LG Smart TV users worldwide. The 3-month free trial is available within the Apple Music app of compatible LG Smart TVs (2018 models and later) running webOS 4.0 and higher, as well as lifestyle screen models StanbyME, StanbyME Go and MyView Smart Monitor.

Music available in Dolby Atmos further enriches the audio experience, delivering an elevated level of clarity and depth with multi-dimensional sound. Apple Music automatically plays Dolby Atmos tracks on compatible LG Smart TVs, and when paired with Dolby Atmos-enabled LG soundbar models, the sound harmonises to immerse listeners in a next-level listening experience. Additionally, there’s no need to adjust the volume when listening to Dolby Atmos tracks, thanks to the loudness normalization algorithm implemented.

Even on LG Smart TVs not supported by Dolby Atmos, users can still enjoy Dolby Atmos by connecting to a Dolby Atmos LG soundbar. LG Smart TVs can also directly connect to Apple AirPod or other Apple devices via Bluetooth to enjoy Dolby Atmos.

Songs and albums available in Dolby Atmos are clearly labeled on Apple Music with a badge on the album’s detail page.

“The introduction of Dolby Atmos through Apple Music on LG TVs transforms how we listen to music on the big screen,” said Chris Jo, senior vice-president of platform business at LG Home Entertainment Company. “LG is dedicated to elevating the content streaming experience for music enthusiasts around the world, and we will continue to offer easy access to and great music experience across devices.”
