What I don't get is why so many commercials that are filmed in 16:9 WS show up as a mini 16:9 image with black all around? It's like the original was filmed in HD, then letterboxed and downsampled onto a 4:3 screen, then transmitted as-is.
Why the hell wouldn't they just take the original and broadcast as-is? Why take the extra step in the middle to make it look worse?
