The google live channel is like combining dvbt n online channels tgt. But abit lag n buggy.

Direct using default dvbt tv app much smoother but access online channel must go thru their respective apps

Those with P8S,

Can you get DTS/Atmos signal output from the build-in Netflix to your AVR/Soundbar?

Hi please check the below link:
https://help.netflix.com/en/node/109477

Please note Dolby Atmos support depends on both the device where you stream the Netlfix (TV) AND the sound bar itself. Both must support Dolby Atmos.

Netflix does not support DTS. You can watch titles in 5.1 surround sound if you have a receiver that supports Dolby Digital Plus and a connection speed of 3.0 megabits per second or faster. If your device's audio output settings are set to stereo or Linear PCM, you'll need to select a 5.1 compatible option instead.

For Google Live Channel app I have all Mediacorp channels and 9 Haystack channels. It feels like 0.5 seconds lag pretty same as built-in digital tuner. I didn't find bugs.

Apps don't need antenna, just broadband data.

Local digital channels need antenna.
Haystack channels no need.

It's Google Live Channel app. You can find the 2 apps in playstore.
