After 2 months of wait, DW-TV Journal has been transmitted to 16:9 SD and it also mean that all of DW-TV programmes are now in 16:9, except in other countries which you will have the black bars.

Darn... why don't they just make it 14:9!?
Oh I remember... some of their Graphics are not on 4:3 safe area...


I believe that DW-TV is being shown on BSkyB as well, is it on 16:9 or with the bars?

These types of posts are becoming incredibly annoying.

Is DW now correctly flagged as 16:9 on their Sky broadcasts? I've been getting increasingly annoyed by the large amount of 16:9 stuff flagged as 4:3 on the channel. At least I can flip my TV and force it into WIDE mode - those viewers with 4:3 sets have no such luck...

It seems to happen a lot..I watch it via our ISP and always assumed it was an issue at their end - 4:3 shows (like, until recently, The Journal) would be stretched to widescreen and I'd have to correct it manually in VLC.
