Optik stereo vs 5.1?

I was looking at the back of the Optik box in the store.  Is Optik content only stereo?  Am I wasting money with surround receivers and speakers?

Optik doesn't control the content. The providers of that content control it. Not all channels or shows offer full surround sound. Newer shows and most likely only HD channels will offer surround sound assuming the content creators decided to offer it.

If the content is 5.1.... would I get the rear and center voice channels on the HDMI out?  The RCA connectors only show Left and Right.
