At $3.99 to $4.99 a movie, I'll stick with RedBox and the wait.

Just for clarification, part of the VOD service is if you subscribe to the channel, you get the VOD service. So, for instance, if you have at least the starter package, you can stream all the VOD off of NBC, ABC, and so on. If you subscribe to Showtime, you can stream all the showtime channels.

By offering this for free, its really a benefit to those who have Comcast cable and who don't subscribe to the premium channels already.

But is all that content in 5.1 audio like the original broadcast? I know it didn't used to be.

From what I've seen yes it is. Maybe not all, but the shows I've played were.

It's kind of odd though as the program is usually in 5.1, but the ads or "pre-program" stuff is in stereo.

My parents have this service and yes it is.

It was in 5.1 for me.

When starting playback with the "previews" it starts in 2.0, but once the title screen for GOT came up and the opening music started it switched to 5.1.
