Phillips have recently brought out a true widescreen TV that is one which is 21:9, not the 16:9 set in common use. With this TV you get a full picture instead of seeing two black bars on the top and bottom you get now with a 16:9 TV.
Phillips are the first to make one, so the cost of them is expensive around £4,000 for the latest model. The other makers may follow soon, but there is a small problem to overcome. The black bars on the top and bottom are actually part of the picture. So the 21:9 TV has to zoom in and at the same time adjust the whole picture so that the zoom doesn't cutt of the sides. A true widescreen picture could be put on a Blue-Ray disc, but are not at the moment.
So if they were cheap would you want a 21:9 and replace the 16:9 in your home?
