The picture has the sides cut off and some of the cards are in this space. Can see the suit but not what the first card is each player has. Sucks, even though not widescreen channel why don't they show the whole picture. I like watching the game but can't see the point of them even putting it on if can't see all the cards.

The Pro-am game on before it, is fine but think they're older games. Tuesdays around midnight.

This is the downside of centre cut rather than 16:9 letterbox.

Unfortunately the ESPN feed is only 4:3 and centre cut is the preferred method of transfer for 16:9 broadcasts to 4:3 in the USA.

I just watched last nights one, and they're letter boxing it now. Awesome, can see all the cards now. Must've got complants and they did something about it.

I noticed this the other day too. Slack on part of ESPN.

Good to see that's sorted.

Hurry up widescreen version of ESPN.
