If you have a VUDU capable device hooked up to your AV system, you can create a free account and try these short Demo clips by Dolby Labs.

VUDU was started by Best Buy in 2008 as a streaming service to compete Netflix streaming. The market wasn't very ready for streaming videos back then, there wasn't even any smart tv or BD player with streaming apps. VUDU didn't do well and Best Buy sold it to WalMart after a year. Opposed to Netflix, VUDU is an a la carte service, you can either rent or buy your content. If you have an ultraviolet or digital download code(usually comes with DVD/BD), you can add those films to your VUDU library for free. What separates VUDU from others is that it uses its own codec called "HDX". It's a very high efficient codec, VUDU claims its more efficient than mpeg-4. VUDU also offers its streams at very high bitrates. Blu-ray captures to VUDU captures (you can find many online) reveals, the quality isn't at BD level but its the closest you will get from a streaming service beside the many thousand dollar Kaleidescape systems.

Anyways, these Dolby Atmos videos are free of charge. There are 5 of them. If you don't have an Atmos capable device, you will hear it in Dolby Digital Plus 7.1(or Dolby Digital 5.1 on a legacy device) which is still amazing.
