UKTV Gold begins widescreen testing

UKTV Gold tested broadcasting programming in widescreen on Friday evening in preparation for the network’s full roll-out of widescreen on all its channels from January 31. Currently, all UKTV channels are broadcast in 4:3, including UKTV History and Dave on Freeview. Virgin Media Television channels – including Virgin 1 and Living – are expected to begin broadcasting in widescreen from the same date.
