A&E HiDef broadcast True Lies but image was fake anamorphic?
 
I know that there is no anamorphic version of James Cameron's 1994 True Lies,, but this past weekend A&E HD broadcast the movie in HiDEF on my (Shaw) Cable's Lineup here in Canada, and the image ( though filling my 16x9 screen) looked ..'funny' .. It was like it was just blown up to fill the screen.
I checked the technical end of my setup and deduce it to be- just a lousy broadcast.

Would I be correct on this??

All A&EHD movies look like this.Unwatchable.I have got on their website and complained about this.They have previously ruined The Godfather and Goodfellas also.Besides they also edit for language,nudity & excessive violence.I wouldn't watch any movie under those circumstances.
