Why do I get widescreen only in my non - HD sport channels?
Does every non-HD channel you try appear in this widescreen format, or is this only some channels/programs?
Hi jeff, the channels I get in HD without widescreen are 223, 224, 225 and also when I went to watch Hockey Night in Canada, Saturday - it was SD widescreen on ch3 and HD was full screen.
Nothing more annoying than the lettering with scores going off your screen. I want widescreen HD for sports!
The next time you come across this let us know and we can then advise further, would like the channel number, station name and the program you were watching.
From what you are describing about Hockey Night in Canada, the full screen on CBC HD and widescreen on CBC channel 3 seems normal.
So is widescreen for sport channels in HD considered less desired?
What you basically want on an HD Channel is full screen, 16:9 ratio, that would be desired. This is of course controlled by the broadcaster (Channel network) and how they filmed the event.
If you have any examples of a show that is a sporting event that is not full screen on an HD Channel, let us know.
