Lovefilm has today updated their PS3 application, adding full Dolby Digital Plus 5.1 surround sound capabilities, available for download from today, the app will automatically upgrade all of the content available through the app, allowing users to access the new surround sound automatically.

Dolby Digital Plus also offers more natural and lifelike quality allowing for enhanced sound of content viewed, as well as utilising more speakers for surround sound.

This brings Lovefilm up to the same line as Netflix, which added Surround Sound 5.1 technology some time ago.

There’s no news yet if the update will also apply to the PS4.
