HD Digital Cable - Stretch SD?

I'm a new HD digital cable user and I just finally got everything hooked up. I am using a 4250 HD Explorer with videotron and have the anglo package with the HD addition. What i absolutely dispise is how there are borders on the sides of the tv squishing the picture quality on non HD channels.

I want to know if there is a way to stretch those channels so that they fit the entire 47 inch screen? I'm very disapointed with this...

My second question is, if I cannot change these channels can I simply cancel the 3$ HD subscription and use my HD box as a digital illico terminal? If I go this route is the digital picture quality all that bad on a LCD TV?
