HD shown in SD

Should all HD channels be shown in full screen?
Accepted Solution

Re: HD shown in SD

Hello jmfr1993. "Most" HD channel programming is full screen with an HD Cable box that is properly connected to and HDTV. Some HD content is filmed with a theatrical wider aspect ratio and black bars may be visible. There are many additional variables like, cable box settings, TV settings, Cable box type, wired connection, HD Channel, HD program, and broadcast aspect ratio that can make this conversation more in depth. 

 

Please let us know if you have any other questions.
