And before you rush out to get Sky+ for DD5.1, I believe that it is only available on a handful of movie channels and, for some extraordinary reason, not available on PPV movies at all.
I think the problem is that, unlike surround sound, the digital tracks require additional bandwidth and, with the number of PPV and other movie channels, that could reduce the number of broadcast channels. Also, they need special broadcast equipment for DD5.1 channels, and they have a shortage of that.
