A lot of devices are 18:9 or near it so it makes sense for companies to go for that format especially for scripted.

Except the device most people actually watch TV on - the actual TV.

You do know there are other methods of watching content, it's not the dark ages.

Actual televisions are still the most commonly used device for watching television shows though, right?

Radio rather than TV but Innuendo Bingo aired it's final episode today, recorded prior to the pedantic. Apparently moving forward spitting water into people's faces may be considered unhygienic.

I'm surprised that lasted as long as it did.
Have you washed your hands?

Sorry to be pandemic about it but I think you had an autocorrect fail there.

Watching The Royle Family and it looks rough quality wise in HD. I assume the BBC has decided not to remaster the original footage.

They would have to dig out the original film (if it even still exists) and re-scan it and re-edit the shows from scratch to make them HD. And presumably ITV would be the ones responsible for that seeing as it was made by Granada.

Pretty sure it was intended to look like that.
