Default EAHD on Shaw western Canada- Pretty Good..

I see we now get Encore Avenue in HD on channel 224 in the greater Vancouver area..
Am editing this post as I have had time to evaluate the programing and it is pretty good , and pretty consistant with HD quality and sound...

Default chnages

OK,, have had time to evaluate this new channel and I see something that has not been properly addressed yet. and that is :
Why is there no notification at beginning of a film that says This film has been modified to fit your TV.. Yet it is in 16 x 9 but the size would be 1.78:1,, and most films are 1.85:1,, but what about 2.35:1 ? ( or wider) ..
Yesterday they ran League of Their Own., it started as credits ran in letterbox,, but then after the dirtected by Penny Marshall, then zoomed in to fill the screen., It seemed to anamorphic to me as the zoomed image was not as dramatic as some 1:33 images that get zoomed in such as The Godfather was a few weeks back on A&E HD .
So I am in a quandry here as I thought that HD channels were broadcast in their original aspect ratio., ., with 16 x 9 most or 80% of movies are probably in the 1:85 Standard Flat Theatrical version .( or 1.75/1.78:1 ) .....

So bottom line.. what is Encore Avenue doing here? are they showing all their films in 1:33 but designed for 16 x 9 screens ???????
