YES. That is why digital cable sucks so fucking bad. None of the providers manage to provide anything but their HD channels in any aspect ratio other than 4:3. I know satellite has this problem with TBS and such, but there are far more content channels (like many of Discovery Channels properties) that are provided in widscreen format. Cable providers just throw it in the bucket and don’t worry about it. I hate subscription broadcast providers, they are all so sub-par. One day the internet will actually be fast… then we’ll see.
