Radio-TV Broadcast History


TNT HD is a cable television network owned by Time Warner that broadcasts 24/7. It is a high definition simulcast of TNT, including live sports, series, specials and movies.

TNT HD is criticized for its practice of airing a significant amount of 4:3 standard definition content stretched to 16:9 through a nonlinear process similar to the "panorama" setting on many HDTVs that some viewers have nicknamed Stretch-o-Vision. The nonlinear stretching process leaves objects in the center of the screen with approximately their original aspect ratio; objects at the left and right edges are distorted. In addition to true HD content at 16:9, TNT HD also airs unstretched upconverted standard definition content in its original aspect ratio. Also almost all providers charge extra for HD packeges that includes TNT HD , but the programing is simulcast from the original TNT , so the programing suffers of many commercial interruptions. Also movies are edited for content(curse language and nudity).
