    Interesting story in the Chicago Tribune yesterday about the networks starting to adopt widescreen for several of their dramas. Best part of the article: Confirming that the short-lived series Feds aired in widescreen. [​IMG] All my friends said I was lying when I told them it aired in WS. And since I was probably the only person in the country that watched the show, I didn't have anyone to back me up. Now I have proof! [​IMG]

    I saw Feds in widescreen too (and liked it), so that's two of us....

    Early episodes of C-16 were also widescreen.

    An awful lot of digital programming in the UK has now conformed to Widescreen. I can see within the next few years, all programming shot in 16:9.
