    Thinking about upgrading to HD. But was wondering when you get DD5.1?
    1) Is it broadcast with the sky box office films only? Or the movie channels as well.
    2) Is it broadcast with all box office films or just some.
    2) --------"------------- movie channel films or just some.

    I ask because i am trying to figure out if its a real alternative to blu-ray for those occasions lovefilm don't get our rentals out in time and we fancy an HD movie. Although i know it is never upto our blu-ray player for sound or picture(quite)

    All HD movies (apart from some on BBC HD and C4 HD) are in DD. Most will be in 5.1, however some older films, eg Zulu will be in 2.0

    In addition programmes, like BSG ,24 etc are also in 5.1

    I have only noticed about 2 movies that weren't in DD5.1 so almost all are in DD5.1. I think the Sky Sports football matches are also in DD5.1 as well as things like Lost and 24 on Sky 1 HD.

    Cheers,
