Turner Classic Movie (TCM) Picture Size Cropped

Hi, I live on Vancouver Island, and have been watching TCM for the past 3 years.  Where I live TCM shows up as channel 35, and it is not HD.


For the past years I've noticed that movies that:

* movies that had aspect ratio 3x4 filled the screen vertically but not horizontally which was normal. 

* movies that had aspect ration 9x16 were cropped to the middle of the screen (because they were not HD).


Since April I've noticed that even movies that have aspect ratio 3x4 are cropped to the middle, meaning they no longer fill the screen vertically.


I've spent hours searching the internet, I have talked to shaw, I even called (but couldn't get through) to TCM itself.


I just want to know if anyone else is experiencing this issue, also if it will ever change back to the way it was, because like this, it is not really watchable.


Thanks in advance!
