Letterbox Format on Smithsonian

Why is everything on Smithsonian coming in as letterbox format?  This isn't just the programs, but all of the commercials.  It's not just on my 3 TVs.  I have checked with a friend living in another town with the same Comcast.  Smithsonian Channel is also coming as letterbox oner her TVs.  I hate letterbox format.

Is it in HD? I think only a few Comcast areas have Smithsonian HD. The SD version is letterbox, as are most SD channels these days.

Untill a couple of weeks ago, it came in as full screen.  Letterbox format ruins the viewing for me.
