ESPN app on Roku stereo only?

Downloaded the ESPN app on my Roku stick and was hoping for 5.1 DD, nope just stereo just like SlingTV. I wish these services would upgrade the qualitiy of their sound. Both Netflix and Amazon provide 5.1.

I love this HD stuff!

Most live streaming is only in stereo, Netflix and Amazon don't do live streaming. Live streaming in 5.1 is harder to do and costs more to do (not impossible) and more resource intensive.
