How Can I Get 5.1 Dolby Streaming With Live TV?

Episode 1767 (1:36:59)

Kent from Huntington Beach, CA
Dolby Digital

Kent has upgraded his home theater system, and he's noticed that all the streaming services aren't streaming in 5.1 surround sound. Leo says that SLING will stream in 5.1 when available, but that's the real trick. If it's available. And even then, live TV is just in stereo. On-demand though, you can get 5.1. Netflix does it. The issue is just live TV, and that's only in stereo.
