    The Disney+ app sucks balls

    Get this:

    On PC:
    There is no Disney+ app for Windows, so you have to use a browser.
    Max resolution is 720p no HDR
    2.0ch stereo

    On Android smart TV:
    Max resolution is 4K with HDR
    But 2.0ch stereo

    On PS4 Pro:
    Max resolution 1080p (I think) no HDR
    With 5.1ch surround

    Please tell me there is a way to watch content on the service where I can get the maximum available experience on my TV without having to spend hundreds of dollars on a device that has an app which allows it.

    I should add, the iPhone app appears to support the 4K stream and HDR when played on its screen, but of course there's no surround being a little device with two speakers.

    But when casting the content to the TV it maxes out at 1080p SDR with 2.0 stereo.

    I remembered that I had an Xbox One S so I dusted that off and downloaded the app.

    And… everything I want works. Full 4K HDR 5.1 surround.

    But looking at Reddit threads on the topic the Xbox app doesn’t support Dolby Atmos, so that sucks for owners of Atmos equipment.

    I thought the Android TV app just wasn't outputting a Dolby Digital signal that my old receiver could understand. I'm using a Chromecast Ultra now, it's giving me 4K HDR and Dolby Digital surround, plus the convenience of voice control. I don't know if it supports Atmos, that wasn't a thing when my receiver was built.
