I also find that annoying. A while ago, on The Weather Network, they were telling viewers to use landscape. Also, when used on TV like that, there will be lost resolution, as some will be discarded to make a vertical picture fit in the horizontal screen. How much loss? Well, some phones now support 4K video. That means 3840 lines reduced to at best 1080. Meanwhile, the sides of the image contain only filler.

I haven't lost my mind. It's around here...somewhere...
