Would you be willing to compromise? Ask your BDU to see if they can do a 14:9 centre cut crop of the HD singal. This way you see more of the filmed content than a 4:3 centre cut crop and still are able to read the small print easier than today.
looks like CNN just does one broadcast in HD now, and the BDU's do the downconverting. Before they had a separate feed and had seperate graphics or were centrecutting their sd feeds, but they are saving money by doing this
CNN's been HD since September 2007(for anyone curious how far back), but it looks like they've gone 16:9 on their SD feed as well, something I've called for for a long time(19:9 SD broadcasting). I like their latest graphics, good change. HLN has also changed their's, though they haven't gone 16:9 for their SD feed, a shame
