A&E Takes A Page From the TNT Playbook
Multichannel News reports on the HD plans for A&E and History Channel. A&E is scheduled for later this year and History Channel sometime in 2007. This caught my attention:
Unlike many HD networks, he added, programming on the channel will either be true HD or offer a wide-screen format to eliminate the black bars that appear on the screen for shows that aren’t presented in the format.
In other words, stretch-o-vision for all non-HD programming (this is a simulcast). Another TNT-HD, if that's your thing.
Still, I'll probably check out the June preview, if Comcast actually shows it somewhere (another INHD pre-empt?).
