Sat down to watch The Weather Man yesterday morning, I tend to only watch movies on MC-HD, here is what they were showing ...



As you can see from this screen capture this image just doesn't quite seem correct, indeed I have adjusted the capture to 4:3 and this is the result ...



It seems that MC-HD didn't have the true HD version of the movie and opted instead to air the 4:3 version stretched to fit the HD 16:9 format.

These guys need to double their efforts at getting HD copies of their movies, every single major studio release airs in HD on HBO, SHO and Starz down south, meanwhile it is very hit and miss in Canada with only a select few major studio movies being aired on the premiums in HD.

Here in western Canada we don't even get some movies our friends in the east are receiving. TMN has movies and series that don't air in the west. I don't imagine that is what the CRTC intended to happen when they approved this duopoly.
