I get DD+ and other formats with my HD antenna and my other devices the same. I will also post this on the Denon thread. Thanks in advance!

Unfortunately, even though the Apple TV4K is sending a proper multi channel signal, in the US “Star Trek Discovery” is only streamed in stereo. I’ve heard in other countries (like Australia), they get it in DD5.1. It’s a shame such a storied, and technically advanced franchise has crippled audio. Do any of the CBS All Access programs have anything better than stereo audio?
