Dark Knight digital download NOT in DD 5.1, only stereo?

Update:11-30Source: network consolidation

Wasn't sure where else to post this, but my Bluray copy of the Dark Knight included a digital copy of the movie. I downloaded it through iTunes, expecting it to be in 5.1 surround sound for my AppleTV2, but it is just stereo. Other digital downloads are in 5.1, like Black Swan and Inception.
Have others noticed this?
Does one have to BUY the movie through iTunes to get the 5.1 surround sound?
Thanks for any responses.

The file will have two audio tracks, a stereo one and an AC3 one, the tv will only play the stereo one but will pass the AC3 audio to anything capable of playing it through either HDMI or optical output. If you aren't getting 5.1, either your equipment doesn't support it or you have it connected improperly.
If the file simply has 6 channel AAC then you will need equipment that will play that, most receivers won't play 6 channel AAC, so you may only hear stereo if this is the case.
