iTunes Store Movies: what kind of surround sound do they have?

in iPod + iTunes + AppleTV edited January 2014
Could someone who already bought a movie on the iTS tell me, what kind of audio it has? Is it AC3? If not, what is it? Can I watch the movie with my Mac hooked up to a 5.1 surround system via optical cable, just like I can with a DVD?

Clarification on this one would be really appreciated

    Yes, I know, that's why I'm asking

    I'm interested in the details: which codec is it (so I can make my ripped movies with surround sound), how does it work, etc.

    I've seen at least one post reporting the movie they downloaded was stereo.
