Netflix and Amazon Prime Instant Video may have gotten all the attention in our recent head-to-head , but one of their competitors now has something that neither of those two streaming video services offers: discrete 7.1-channel surround sound. Dolby has announced that it has entered into an agreement to bring Dolby Digital Plus’s 7.1-channel audio to some of Vudu’s cinematic offerings, starting today with Disney’s “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.”
For now, though, it's only on Vudu. Other services, like Netflix, already offer 5.1 audio. Will the addition of two additional audio channels entice any Maximum PC readers into giving Walmart's Vudu service a shot?
