Does anyone have any information as to when ITV will be, or hope to be transmitting 5.1 audio?

I think the earliest we will hear 5.1 from ITV will be alongside ITV HD.

As the start of that is a while yet and even then only via the interactive red button function it may well be sometime before ITV give us 5.1.

Although Flood and similar programmes would perhaps be good in 5.1 its hard to think of much else that ITV show thats any good let alone shows that would benefit from 5.1.

Thanks for the reply. Will/when will they be able to show movies and drama in the future? Why are the BBC seemingly more advanced and is there a reluctance within ITV to embrace it?

:eek:ITV have to be careful with their money ,they have to earn it .
The bbc have a guaranteed income from the government ,ITV have to rely on advertising revenue :rolleyes:

Also look at the phone in scams ITV got fined £5.6 million (the maximum they could have been fined was £70 million :eek:) whereas the bbc will get a very small fine (the maximum they can be fined is £250,000 :thumbsdow)
