seeing how they are moving onto HD, surely they can now take on the widescreen format for regular digital subsribers? i mean you can watch the warriors on prime in 16:9, but not on sky sport!

Sky have been upgrading the operations centre for sometime now and stated that once done all channels would be moved to 16:9, they seem to have taken a fair bit of time in doing that, but I understand once HD is released expect most channels to start moving.

I think in the Feb or March Sky Magazine they stated that all channels would be moved to 16:9 by years end.

johnr: You should direct this question towards sky.


and get the usual carbon copy blow off answer Undecided

i'm liking this sport on Prime though, is good to see Wimbeldon and Euro 2008 live and in 16:9.

I'm hoping all Sky Sports channels will change to 16:9 at the end of July when Sky HD is launched.  But then again this is hope rather than any concrete info :)
