I was full screen, but very standard definition...57 said:Does this mean in a "windowboxed" format with bars all around? Or Filling the 16:9 screen, but not HD.
Coronation Street would be taped in standard 576i 16:9 widescreen; just like most stuff from the UK. Over there they broadcast terrestrially, digitally at 16:9 576i, and analogue using the old 4:3 625 line. No real signs of HD there yet, but they have been broadcasting widescreen digitally since the late 1990's. Stuff like Coronation Street would be shown as 14:9 letterbox on a 4:3 signal; and that it is how it is probably shown here too, i would think (though I confess I've never caught any Coronation Street).57 said:Maybe these are "filmed" like Degrassi (on CTV), (perhaps with 16mm) which also doesn't "look" HD, even though it's 16:9.
