Am i the only one who has noticed films being shown in DD 5.1 on multple sky movie channels.

i was under the impression that only Sky Movies, 1, 2, 3 initially were in DD. Then also 9 and 10. However i watched kill bill on movies 5 last night in DD 5.1 and movies 4 was DD 2.1

Despite this the program guide displayed 'DS' and not 'DD' but my amp picked up a DD 5.1 signal from my box.

If sky has/is making all the movie channels DD 5.1 then im definately in favour of the move.

SKY haven't said anything which is why people are being pleasently surprised, you would have thought it would have warranted a press release but perhaps it's still under testing (using the new playout hardware) and that's why DS is still being used.

Good news if this is a permenant feature and may even help the takeup of SKY+.

I noticed the very same thing over the last couple of days. On Wednesday I checked across Sky Movies 1 to 10 and found that 8 of the channels at the time were showing films with a 5.1 soundtrack.

Excellent!
