I can understand why streaming services, like Netflix, have focused more on improving resolution on the video side of things. More people have 4K TVs, than 5.1, 7.1, or full Atmos setups. But it is welcome news from Netflix has now turned their attention to sound, with the announcement that they are turning up audio quality as well. It will require more bandwidth, but frankly, compared to what video consumes, it’s nothing.

If you plan to watch a show or film on Netflix Wednesday night, you might notice it sounds better. The streaming company has released a new feature called high-quality audio that makes sure what you hear is closer to what the artists behind your favorite show intended. Netflix’s improved audio came about because of the show Stranger Things’ second season.
