Networks announced that this coming football season, pro and college football games will be broadcast in Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound; included in these broadcasts is ABC’s Monday Night Football. ABC, FOX and other networks will also broadcast select regular season Sunday and post-season games in Dolby Digital 5.1.

“Fox's first Dolby Digital broadcast was the network presentation of the theatrical film Independence Day in 1998. Fox also produced Super Bowl XXXVI and has produced its NFL and NASCAR coverage in the format since last season. In fact, Fox has made a commitment to broadcast all of its Fox Widescreen sports presentations in Dolby Digital 5.1, as we believe that the purest digital audio enriches the viewing experience by making viewers feel like they are at the game,” said Andy Setos, president of engineering at the Fox Group.

“Live programming, such as sports, is a great showcase for Dolby Digital 5.1,” said Tom Daily, director of marketing professional audio for Dolby Laboratories. “Sports fans really appreciate the difference that Dolby surround sound makes in experiencing the action."
