Wonder Woman 1984 becomes the first HBO Max title in 4K HDR, Dolby Atmos

Wonder Woman 1984 will be the first 4K HDR title on HBO Max to bring the fledgling streaming service up to speed in time for its biggest Christmas Day release. On Tuesday, Wonder Woman 1984 director Patty Jenkins announced that her new DC movie would be available in 4K Ultra HD resolution, with support for high dynamic range video formats – the open standard HDR10 and the richer but proprietary Dolby Vision and three-dimensional audio with Dolby Atmos. Unfortunately there are some limitations.

The 4K HDR Wonder Woman 1984 experience will be available on select devices: Apple TV 4K, Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K, Amazon Fire TV Cube and 4K Fire TV Edition Smart TVs, Chromecast Ultra, Supported Android TV Devices, and AT & T TV. As you can see, there is no mention of game consoles, be it the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, or Xbox Series S / X. HBO Max is available on any device that is HDR capable. Xbox also supports Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos. Some versions – PS4 Pro, Xbox One X, and Xbox Series X – also support 4K.

PlayStation 5 and Roku are missing from the list because the HBO Max app isn’t even present on these devices. WarnerMedia said, “HBO Max will expand these features to more movies and TV series and support additional devices during 2021.”

Thanks to Wonder Woman 1984, HBO Max is now in line with its biggest competition, including Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Disney +, and Apple TV +. Hulu does 4K (on very select devices) but neither HDR nor Dolby Atmos. NBC’s Peacock doesn’t even support 4K, let alone anything else.

Wonder Woman 1984 will be released in US theaters and on HBO Max on December 25th (US exclusive). It is also available in Indian cinemas in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu for Christmas. The worldwide rollout of the DC film begins on December 16.
