    IgnacioChile89, Dolby ATMOS would be supported via ARC on the B8, especially in Netflix. Try "The Punisher" "Mogili", & "Guardians of the Galaxy 2".  At this time we do not have any information to provide about E-ARC and if an update will be released for previous models.

    Please fill this petition to ensure LG doesn't leave us in the dark; an update to the existing platform is not only possible, but should rather be supplemented to avoid unnecessary pressures to customers to upgrade.

    I would like to see this as well.. There's nothing more disappointing than watching 4k hdr via the integrated smartos apps only to have limited sound capabilities.  It basically makes the smartos apps useless for anyone wanting full quality audio.
