Totally agree on this.

When I was in HK, it really makes the viewing more pleasing. Just add something onto the sides if the black strips are 'not so nice'.

Just find Mediacorp being plain lazy I guess... It's been for so many years, still can't have a standardisation to industry practices. I think one day they might still have to do it, so why not just get it done earlier?
i think HD channels showing sd content in square box is easier to maintain... the HD channel shows the whole screen while SD channel just shows the center cropped square area... then they don't need to have 2 diff feeds for ch5 and hd5... or squeeze the whole 16:9 screen into PAL resolution.
the current mediacorp news aspect ratio is really confusing... suddenly fat suddenly thin...
