The TV app keeps the aspect ratio of the program generally (16:9 or 4:3). some SD channels are implementing AFD and their image will change generally from 4:3 to 14:9 (two small side curtains of black). 

 

if you wish to zoom in you can activate the iOS zoom feature in the settings app, general, assessability.

Easiest way is to turn on the "High Definition" filter at the top of the Live TV listings (assuming the channel you want to watch is available in HD).

I have a SamSung phone and i'm having the same issue.  However I am not trying to watch TV LIVE I am watching shows that are ON DEMAND which doesn't have that filter.  Is there another way?

I have a Samsung phone too, and all my On Demand categories have the "High Definition" filter. What Filters are showing on your phone? Do you pay for HD?  Even when I select an On Demand show, it asks which version I want to watch, SD, HD, or TVGO.
