  • Sky will soon be streaming live football with Dolby Atmos.
  • The new standard is already making its debut in the Super Cup final between RB Leipzig and Bayern this weekend.
  • The Supercup will be broadcast live on Sky on Saturday July 20 at 8.30 p.m. and also on free-to-air TV on Sat.1.

Sky will upgrade its Bundesliga broadcasts to the Dolby Atmos atmospheric sound standard from the start of the season. However, the technology celebrates its premiere in live football in Germany before that:

Saturday’s German Super Cup will be presented as the first match with Dolby Atmos. From 8.30pm you can tune in via Sky Q and maybe bring a little stadium feeling to your living room if audio technology is available.

You can also watch the duel between cup winners RB Leipzig and German champions FC Bayern Munich on Saturday 1 on free TV.

UHD and Dolby Atmos on Sky Sport: what do wow users get out of it?

While Sky will in future offer UHD live sports in Dolby Atmos via Sky Q, you shouldn’t get too excited as a simple wow user without Sky hardware: the highest quality live content is not still not available via the old Sky Ticket available. So it’s debatable whether Dolby Atmos support will come to Wow at the start of the Bundesliga season, despite Sky’s obvious efforts.

Although Sky has already promised to improve the quality of wow content overall, the first step is simply to improve the picture quality of third-party apps such as Disney+ or Netflix. In other words: for Sky content, Wow Full HD is the end of the road when it comes to resolution – when it comes to sound, there’s sometimes just stereo quality.

The previously announced second stage, UHD implementation for Sky content and live streams on Wow, has been targeted by the provider for 2022 – but Sky has yet to give further details. this subject.
