New nowTV stick not outputting Dolby Digital ???

Just purchased the new nowTV stick because I have read it outputs Dolby digital but it dosn’t ??

My set up is that I have all my sources connected to my Sony Bravia TV all with HDMI cables ie Sky box, Apple TV and Toshiba Blu-ray player the tv is then connected to my Denon AV amp av 1905 via an optical lead when using the sources if there is a Dolby digital content the AV amp clicks and shows Dolby is being decoded but when watching a movie on the new now tv stick Dolby is not there? I have ensured that the settings on the nowTV stick are correctly set up .

Please help ?

Hi @Markymark240671

 

Nowtv content is only 720p 2 channel stereo and doesn't output 5.1 Dolby surround sound Smiley Mad

Hi @Markymark240671

 

Nowtv mentioned in a recent press release that 1080p is coming to the nowtv service sometime this year, but they didn't say anything about Dolby digital surround sound.

 

Your guess is as good as mine.

Hi @Markymark240671

 

Fingers crossed, how can they offer 1080p without DD where their main streaming competitors offer DD Plus.

 

Will be interesting when the Netflix App is introduced to the nowtv boxes / stick what surround sound version will be offered by Netflix Smiley Wink

This is a deal breaker for me even at black Friday deal price

I can live with 720p because my AV upscale works well

But 2 channel sound is rubbish 

Glad I tested Sky cinema 14 day trial than fork out £99 for second rate service

Pull your finger out Sky
