I cant understand Tata Sky's logic. They provide some downscaled HD channels in proper 16:9 aspect ratio such as Comedy Central, Nat Geo Music, Nat Geo People, Baby TV, etc. On the other hand they provide other downscaled HD channels in 4:3 aspect ratio such as History TV18, VH1, Travel XP, etc.

Why dont they follow a single rule? Either show all downscaled HD channels in 16:9 aspect ratio or show them in 4:3 aspect ratio.

Vh1 was perfect in 16:9 ratio till today. Their logic of changing this just prior to launching the HD version defies sense.

^^ But whats the point in showing few downscaled HD channels in 16:9 ratio and other in 4:3 ratio? What not stick to 1 format?

^^ Yes. They have no proper philosophy. They are showing Nat Geo Music in 16:9 ratio but they changed aspect ratio of VH1 to 4:3. They are same genre channels, so TS show show them in similar aspect ratio.

If we say that due to addition of VH1 HD, they changed aspect ratio of its downscaled feed, then why are they showing Comedy Central's downscaled feed in 16:9 ratio? They should show its downscaled HD feed in 4:3 aspect ratio.

does it take more space in transponder if telecasted in 16:9 instead of 4:3 ???

anyhow, vh1 hd is coming... they might have decided that there is no need of sd channel in 16:9.

if once started watching hd version.... who cares about sd version...

^^ People who are not subscribed to HD channels. Also if they think that if HD channel is available, then its downscaled feed should be shown in 4:3 aspect ratio, then why dont they follow the same policy for Comedy Central, Epic, etc channels? Even though their HD feeds are available on Tata Sky, still Tata Sky shows these channels downscaled feeds in 16:9 aspect ratio.
