Will the food be in HD 16:9, or delivered in SD letterboxed on a small plate?

I'm not 100% certain but I believe Sky only own a small stake in the company that produce Food TV and the Living Channel.

So sky own part of living channel, and claim they cant fis that abortion of useless 14:9 letterbox crap they put out? Great...

IMO in this era when you cant even buy a non widescreen tv mangling content to fit the minority is not acceptable.

Sort your content out before you open a resturant sky. Dont need HD but I would like to see things in the right aspect without bits missing when I am at mums and watching whatever chaff you are serving up on tv.

I'm apparently wrong entirely. I've since been told Sky have no financial interest at all in the company.

Same old convo.
Living and Food are owned by TouchDown Eyeworks.
It's their problem which they are fixing.
