But History channel is right now showing Ice Road Truckers (their own program). IT is a 16:9 program.
If you put on regular history, it is 16:9, letterboxed (by signal) and pillarboxed (by my TV). If you put on History HD, it is still letterboxed, and stretched to 16:9, instead of just zooming it in. And on top of all that, the program is marked as in "HD" in the guide.
I can hardly imagine a way to screw this up more.
Forget it, they just fixed it. History HD is now zoomed in. It's still not really HD, but that's a minor thing.
