There's a main YouTube TV thread here where this has been discussed a lot: https://www.avsforum.com/forum/39-ne...g-service.html

The short answer is there is no 5.1 for live TV or any prognosis on when or if we'll ever get it. Select on demand content does have 5.1 audio on certain devices. In a YTTV Twitter post the other day, someone asked about 5.1 and the response from a YTTV rep was to leave feedback requesting it — like they haven't heard there was any interest in it yet. *sigh*

I asked them on twitter and get had a kind of BS answer or a stock BS answer. I just don't understand the lack of 5.1 in live TV. I would like to leave AT&T TV Now for YTTV but not till they ad 5.1 sound to live TV.

Set your receiver or processor to Dolby Surround and you will derive 5,1 sound from your 2 channel stereo.

To be owned by a tech giant and only offer antiquated 2.0 audio boggles the mind. It's frustrating.

Man I could not have said that better. It's really a mystery, I don't get it.

Not really. Most users will only have a 2.0 setup and that's who Google is aiming their device for - the average person who will use an app or chromecast or other streaming box hooked to their tv. The streaming box replaces their cable box. Things like AVRs are rare, and most sound bars are just fancier 2.0 systems. Plus you can use the same stream for mobile and tablet users who don't have more than stereo anyways.

People who wanted 5.1 would either get the episodes as a subscription to the program (you can still get downloaded tv shows). Or provided as a non live tv streaming service like amazon prime, netflix, Disney+ etc where there is no real time 5.1 encoding requirement.
