It is hooked up with HDMI. The receiver is new and my old one did use the optical.
There has got to be another reason. Because what you said is totally contrary to logical thinking. Why would Dish do that?

With your ISP, what is the download speeds youâ€™re getting? Here are the requirements for using Netflix;
SD/SQ â€“ 3 Mbps
HD/HQ â€“ 5 Mbps
4K/Ultra HD â€“ 25 Mbps
On the Unit youâ€™re having the issue on, can you press the buttons of; [HOME] > [HOME] > [HOME] > Receiver. If the speeds meet our requirements please logout of the Netflix App and then reset the Hopper 3 and once programming returns, log back into the Netflix app and try the events again to see if they are playing in the correct format.
It is not hooked up with optical audio since I got the new receiver. It is HDMI only. But so is my FireTV and Netflix pushes DD through the HDMI fine. As a matter of fact, that is one of the two purposes for an HDMI cable. It carries HD video AND HD (DD) audio.

This was a problem with Netflix from a while back and it was said that the Optical cable was needed for DD as HDMI doesn't carry the DD signal when watching Netflix.
