Your love of discrete surround sound holding you back from enjoying the fruits of the modern streaming? No longer. HBO
has licensed Dolby Digital Plus
for HBO Go
which will enable HDTVs, Blu-ray players and game consoles like the Xbox 360 and PS3 to enjoy 5.1 (or more) channel discrete surround sound. A quick reminder, Dolby Digital Plus
is the newer version of Dolby Digital -- that we've loved since 1997 -- and is capable of 5.1 or more channels and at a lower bitrate than its older brother.
