Reply from HBO NOW on DD 5.1
This the official reply I received 4/15/2016 from HBO NOW -
"At this time, there is no update on offering Dolby 5.1 yet on any devices."
This was an answer to my request -
[/quote]"I want to subscribe to HBO NOW but with surround sound support, e.g. Dolby 5.1 etc. Your website lists compatible devices to receive HBO NOW but does not list surround sound options.
Would you tell me please what devices come with surround sound for HBO NOW?
ROKU is a no.
What about FIRE TV?
PS3/PS4 are not on your devices list, will these be available at some date and with surround sound?"[/quote]
It would seem that HBO NOW is only sending stereo for ANY device. I suspect that for those who claim 5.1, it is being simulated by your receiver and is not true 5.1.
