Amazon Prime Video to Support Dolby Atmos

Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan will be the first Amazon video release to carry a Dolby Atmos soundtrack when it becomes available for streaming on Amazon Prime Video August 31.

TechRadar confirmed the news with a Dolby representative who said Prime subscribers will be able to stream the object-based audio format via the Amazon Fire TV and Amazon Fire TV Cube streaming devices.

When it begins streaming Atmos, Amazon will join Netflix and Vudu, both of which offer the object-based audio format on dozens of titles. Apple announced that its Apple TV 4K streaming player will be upgraded to support Atmos this fall; the company also said at the time of the announcement that iTunes will be “home to the largest collection of Dolby Atmos supported movies.”

It’s not clear which other devices will support Dolby Atmos on Amazon Prime Video.

In Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, an up-and-coming CIA analyst uncovers a pattern in terrorist communication and is launched into a deadly game of cat and mouse with a rising terrorist figurehead preparing for a massive attack against the U.S. and her allies.

I presume this will be Dolby Digital Plus Atmos and not TrueHD Atmos.

Will the series also be in HDR?
