Euro 2004 Broadcast Ratio


Recommended Posts

Anyone else find it mildly annoying that you have a nice big widescreen TV but thanks to backwards European broadcasters only 2/3 of it is used. Either that or you stretch it and make the players look like fucking dwarfs.

Be interesting to know how many widescreen tv's have been sold recently with the promise of watching glorious widescreen footie.

Or am I just a 16:9 snob?

you think that's bad?

My mum's sky box outputs BBC1 with a two inch border (all the way) around the picture during the game, but 16:9 with black boards (top and bottom) when they're "in the studio".

But, if you watch the RF/coax feed it's fine 4:3
