“Good news everyone!*” Sky News is preparing to broadcast in 16:9 widescreen with a prospective launch date of Sunday April 26th.
That will certainly be a pleasant change from the 4:3 ratio currently screened on Foxtel, Austar and Optus TV.
Sky News is owned and operated by Australian News Channel Pty Ltd – a joint venture of British Sky Broadcasting, PBL Media and Seven Media Group.
Australian-Media notes that date may be pushed back if internal preparations take longer to complete than expected.
*apologies to Futurama.
