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

@Anonymous User 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 @Anonymous User. 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.

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?
