Well, a 3 second google search turned up the fact that it has an optical out, and its a relatively new TV with 4K. I’d guess that it does pass through DD, but perhaps you might look through the megathread to see if some else has purchased it?
Thanks, is there a quick way to search the thread for this?

rtings now lists on their reviews whether TV's pass-through dolby and dts: https://www.rtings.com/tv/tests/inputs/5-1-surround-audio-passthrough

I don't think your exact model is on there - they mainly review mid and high end models, however if your model is a 2017 or 2018 then I would say its 99% certain that it does pass-through of dolby at least

Thanks, how are you finding your tv? I am in the market for a Sony which doesn’t blue when watching football.

If i want to watch football i always use the HD channels 101-105 as i don't have Sky or cable.
