Why are any programmes not widescreen?. 16:9 TV's were sold years ago because it was the future, but still I have to stretch programmes to fit?

A lot of the content used is still 4:3 based and the channel is still accessible by far more 4:3 screens than 16:9.

SKY News were moving to brand new dedicated studios and I believe they will switch to 16:9 around that time however I am not sure on the date or even if they have already moved.

Do you prefer to watch fat heads rather than normally proportioned ones? :)

If it's politicians on there, I don't usually notice any difference, especially Prescott :D

I can confirm we are going W/S when the new studio goes live, which was supposed to be very soon however the 'live' date has just been put back slightly so you'll have to wait a little longer :(

Will you continue to keep all of your captions well outside the safe area? :D

And no cross-promotion of Sky's sports channels presented as "news" either.

In fact, are sports results "news" at all?
