No, I don't necessarily think this would be better in the TV or HDTV area. This Sunday, CBS is going to broadcast one (not sure which) of the college hoops games using a single set of cameras for both the HDTV and NTSC broadcast. The way they are doing this is an experiment. But the twist is that the downconverted NTSC feed is going to be letterboxed. Anyhow, while I don't think 16:9 is any kind of solution to OAR woes, I do think this is a good thing. It helps to send the message that not everything fits every kind of screen. Not that I think it will definitely help, but who knows. Personally, I plan on hearing some sports fans at the office bitching Monday morning.
