TV9 is off air and will be returning soon 

- its brief absence is to enable the extended coverage of CTV8 to Whangarei, Rotorua, Taupo, Gisborne, Taranaki, Wanganui, Manawatu, Wairarapa, Nelson, Timaru and Invercargill, as well as the launch of a new channel in November;

the broadcaster WTV has indicated that they will continue TV9 broadcast later this year or early next.

I am guessing said channel to launch in November is Al Jazeera English. Yay! Excited!

Perhaps when it comes back they may understand aspect ratios?
