TV2 Film gets it in perspective

TV2 Film is to broadcast all of its output in the correct aspect ratio. Distributor YouSee, the former TDC Kabel, says that from tomorrow movies released in 4:3 will be shown in 4:3 and those released in 16:9 will be broadcast in the 16:9 widescreen format.

The move highlights the number of channels that continue to broadcast in the 4:3 format: these include BBC World, where the compromise 14:9 format is used for news broadcasts, MTV and CNN.
