Big pond movies not supporting souround sound


When I hire a movie through Big-pond movies I have found that it is not broadcast in surround sound!!!

I am using a Telstra TV box and when I stream from Stan or Netflix i get surround sound!! but even when I hire a HD movie from Bigpond movies it is still only in stereo and NOT IN SURROUND SOUND!!

What is up with this? is this normal? are there any plans to start broadcasting in surround sound?

Very disappointing as i have paid good money for a decent receiver and have no surround sound!!!!

Why am i paying for a rental movie that is inferior to what i used to get when I could hire DVDs??????????

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help
