    i subscribe to the telewest broadband digital tv package and watch all terrestrial channels through the set top.
    france v senegal on friday was transmitted in 4:3 ratio - giving vertical black lines on my panasonic tx28pk3 tv.
    this morning (01/06) telewest started providing the "interactive" service - press the red button and select different stuff. - i did this and was suprised to see the picture re-framed to 16:9 ratio.
    anyone got any ideas to why this is the case ???

    Are you sure it wasn't just 4:3 squeezed into 16:9 ?

    Not 4:3... 14:9 displayed in a 16:9 frame (on digital terrestrial anyway).

    It's amazing to me that the country that produces widecsreen tv's can then broadcast in 4:3 ! All the adverts in the uk to 'Buy your widescreen set before the world cup' have been a farce !

    Yeah... they've made a HDTV feed available though. So in some ways, we're not advanced enough for them! :(
