Why is there still no 5.1 audio output?
This is pretty poor especially as your really pushing the service.
Couldn't agree more! Particularly for the cinema pass. You can run it through your amp on Dolby ProLogicII/IIx if you have it but it's only a 'make-do' solution.
If you haven't already I'd recommend voting for and/or leaving a comment on the ideas board
There's also a longer thread including some responses from the NOW TV Team here if you are interested
My home cinema amp does 'convert' it to Prologic IIx or DTS Neo but it's unacceptable whne other streaming services offer it.
