    There's probably some old threads on that topic. Depending on the original broadcaster's feed (and perhaps who is working the D* control room), you might get a wide screen feed that has been compressed to a 4:3 aspect, making for some skinny people on screen. If you stretch it onto your 16:9 screen, you might get a decent widescreen view, but it will likely depend on how your hardware restretches the picture. If it uses a different stretching algorithm than how it was compressed, you could get some distortions.

    Sometimes you will get a straight 4:3 feed. Generally, D* does not send CT feeds in 16:9 format, although they had some matches in HD earlier this year..

    Please correct the following info

    i) Cricket Plus channel is not showing South Africa and Zim ODIs LIVE. On the program guide, it is there, but today when I wanted to see the match, they did not show.

    ii) Zee Sports USA is not showing PAK vs NZ ODI Abu Dhabi ODI series. They have shown the first ODI, after that they are not showing

    So please correct the information presented in this thread

    Is Zee Sports America broadcasting the NZ vs Pak test series currently underway in NZ?
    This series is a strange animal in that it is being played in NZ as Pak home games. Directv has rights to all NZ home games but this one should probably be on Zee sports America s it is being considered a Pak home game. Can anyone confirm?
    www.willow.tv has this series for $19.99.

    Dont know if anyone has observed this. West Indies Vs Australia series on DirectTV, is not being properly displayed in my TV. Some of the upper section and lower section of display is getting Cut. Dont know how to fix that, I tried various options in TV, but it doesnt work. Surprisinly, all other channels are fine except this one.

    WI vs Aus looks good on my DirecTV setup with a 40" Samsung LCD TV.
    Not sure what your problem could be.

    According to http://www.smh.com.au/sport/cricket/india-rule-test-arena-while-trying-to-kill-it-20091206-kd0r.html, There are unconfirmed reports that, India will not host 3 Tests vs. South Africa. Instead India has opt to 5 ODIs. By End of January 2010 India will not be #1 Test team.

    A lot tests for Australia and South Africa to take over the #1 spot.

    Rumors are that England will skip India in 2011, India will be in England come July 2011. By October 2011, India will host Bangladesh for the first time for Tests and ODIs since 1998.

    BREAKING NEWS: "Tri-Nation Tournament" Bangladesh vs India vs Sri Lanka is going to ESPN360. The indication now is DirecTV has lost the rights to Bangladesh cricket home games. That eliminates the expectation of Channel I Bangla of covering the series.

    All games from Shere Bangla National Stadium Mirpur, Bangladesh January 4 to January 13, 2010 at 3:30 pm BDT (3:30 am EST).

    Are any of the games broadcast in HD on Directv? I've sort of gotten into the sport casually by watching a couple matches on justin.tv and would like to watch a game in better video quality.

    "The deal - under which all 60 games will be shown live or on a short delay on a dedicated YouTube channel - will apply across the world, except in the USA, which will have re-broadcast options."
