  1. I love watching movies on Neon, actually I love everything about Neon. It’s brilliant 🙂

  2. Trevor: Do you realise that Neon doesn’t have or support surround sound. Eg 5.1 or Dolby Atmos, also doesn’t support 4k HDR. I don’t see how someone loves 2-channel audio. Having surround sound actually increases my enjoyment a lot, especially having Dolby Atmos and DTS:X. Also, I am reluctant to go to any local cinema as they don’t appear to have either of them. One screen, however, has 4k but the seats are so narrow I’m not sure I can fit in them anymore.

  3. Yes, Fsmith, it’s amazing that Neon hasn’t upgraded to these specs yet, given they’re on every other major streaming platform: Netflix, Amazon Prime, Apple TV+ and Disney+ (although the just-launched HBO Max and Peacock in the US max out at 1080). I don’t see Neon adopting them anytime soon in light of the economic pressures Sky faces and it being the only major NZ SVOD streamer now that it’s absorbed Lightbox. Although Sky has invested more in the platform, don’t expect video and audio quality to be priorities.

  4. At the moment I have got the sound coming through the TV so it’s not bothering me. I should get some speakers 🙂 Gosh, darn Legends of Tomorrow is absolutely bonkers at times, the sense of humour is hilarious, it’s definitely my favourite show at the moment 🙂

  5. Unfortunately you will need more than just more speakers $$$. LOT sounds very good in surround sound but tbh you aren’t missing too much. Streaming sound is still compressed and largely sounds pretty awful compared to sound off a good BD or 4k UHD.

  6. Quite right, thx1138 — physical media remains unbeatable for audio and video.
