Many titles are presented in the best video and audio technologies available today – 4K, HDR10, Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos.

Part 1 Which video formats are available on Disney+

Disney+ offers a growing library of content that supports high-quality streaming. The following options may be available, depending on the title and streaming device:

  1. Full HD: Full HD video features a 1080p resolution and a higher definition image compared to standard HD (720p).
  2. 4K Ultra HD: This format displays a 3840 x 2160 pixel resolution and a clearer picture than full HD video.
  3. HDR10: HDR10 is the default HDR format. It stands for High Dynamic Range, which displays a broader range of colors and brightness.
  4. Dolby Vision: Dolby Vision is a more dynamic version of HDR. It adjusts the colors and brightness so each frame of video is optimized for your screen.
  5. IMAX Enhanced*: This content features an expanded aspect ratio of 1.90:1 which allows the picture to cover the full height of the screen.

The 4K Ultra HD and HDR category on the home page is a great way to quickly find content in the highest possible quality, and logos for 4K, HDR (HDR10 or Dolby Vision) and Dolby Atmos are neatly flagged within the synopsis, alongside those for age appropriateness, year of release, genre, season count and audio format (note that you will only see these badges if your device supports the technology). Ultra HD and HDR titles, as well as IMAX Enhanced content, can also be accessed through a drop-down menu within the ‘Movies’ tab. 

Atmos content on Disney Plus is prolific – all movies, shorts and the odd Disney Original. Those same titles are also available in Dolby Vision HDR for subscribers who own a Dolby Vision TV. Dolby Vision is an HDR standard that uses dynamic metadata. The aim is to give you better visuals and improve the image quality. In order to watch Dolby Vision content you need to have the right equipment. The following manufacturers all support Dolby Vision on a number of TV sets (not an exhaustive list):

  • LG
  • Panasonic
  • Philips
  • Sony
  • TCL
  • Hisense 

The Apple TV 4K, Chromecast with Google TV and Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K all support Dolby Vision too, meaning you can stream Vision content to a compatible TV via those devices. Dolby Vision is supported on the Roku Ultra, as well as the new Roku Streaming Stick 4K.

Mobile devices supporting Dolby Vision includes: iPhone 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max and later, LG G6, etc.
