    The fact that you need a widescreen TV to use it makes it pretty limited in appeal.
    Why can't it work with regular sets?!?!

    In Europe we've had widescreen televisions for more than a decade. Granted, support for PALplus analogue broadcasts (i.e. widescreen without loss of vertical resolution) has never been that great but DVB-T broadcasts have been in widescreen since the beginning of digital terrestrial (which here in the UK is now almost 9 years ago) so with a SCART connector you get "full resolution" widescreen easily enough.

    Has widescreen only been introduced with HDTV in some territories or something?
