If you changed the setting on the cablebox to stretch the picture, it looked clearly distorted and wasn't worth it.... However with Verizon FiOS, I'm noticing that some of the non-HD channels are coming through in 16:9 widescreen format but the picture isn't distorted and the quality is pretty good.....

I could live with that if the same situation applied to the games... What I won't be happy about is having to watch the games in 4:3 picture format because you see so much less of the ice surface....
