Official FandangoNOW discussion thread

Currently, there isn't an official FandangoNOW discussion thread, so I'm creating one. I don't have much experience with FandangoNOW, but I have a Fandango VIP account, I've installed FandangoNOW on my iPhone and on my Xbox One S. I didn't install it on my Xbox for a while due to the negative reviews that FandangoNOW got on the Microsoft Store, but today I decided to give it a try anyway, because some of those reviews are old and perhaps Fandango has fixed the problems that the reviewers were complaining about.
FandangoNOW offers content with DTS audio. Most movie and TV show streaming services offer Dolby audio instead of DTS, so the fact that FandangoNOW offers DTS audio makes it unusual. I'd like to know what DTS codec(s) and bitrates FandangoNOW offers. I've seen the icon 'DTS HD' on a few movie pages, but I don't know whether that means DTS HD high resolution audio or DTS HD-MA; the latter seems unlikely, due to the higher bitrate of DTS HD-MA.

TV: LG 47LW5700, AVR: Onkyo TX-NR787, speakers: DCM KX speakers:DCM KX-12 Series 2 (as front left and front right), DCM KX Center Series 2, DCM KX-6 Series 2 (as side surround left and right), sources: Xbox One S, Playstation 2 (fat model), Nintendo GameCube (model with digital AV output) with GameBoy Player, Panasonic VCR (PV-4661), PC: Microsoft Surface Pro (5th generation), phone: iPhone 7 Plus

And this document (pdf) mentions DTS’ Headphone:X bitrate at 256kbps.
