Samsung TV picture only showing 4:3

NowTv only shows in 4:3 on my samsung tv and the picture size button is not enabled in the settings. Its only the programmes because when the adverts come on it goes into 16:9....are there any suggestions on how this may be fixed. Cheers

@bigst what channel are you watching and what program? Some content is from the last millennium and made for 4:3 ratio.

It depends on what shows you are watching @bigst. Some will have been produced at 16:9, some at 4:3.

 

Also, 4:3 and 16:9 content carry a marker flag which instructs the video player which shape the content is. Some playback devices are better at recognising this flag than others.

 

 

Cheers

Re: Samsung TV picture only showing 4:3

Hi there I’m trying to watch aqua man on my Samsung smart tv but the picture size is only 4:3 and I am unable to change this whilst watching. Other apps are fine like Netflix etc. Any suggestions?
