Widescreening

Hey, Blockbuster finally catches up. From the Bits:

The policy change, made at the beginning of the year, was due to demand from customers, who are becoming more accustomed to the black bars at the top and bottom of the widescreen image, said Blake Lugash, spokesman for the Dallas-based chain.

"We made a decision to purchase the majority of titles we bring in on DVD in the widescreen format," he said. "We try to follow our customer preferences. As DVD becomes increasingly popular, they become more familiar with the features and with the benefits of letterboxing. They've learned it's a superior format to full-frame."

And the Bits themselves have a great comment, " Geez... it's almost like they really believe it! You're late to the party, guys, but we'll still give you credit for attendance. Nice of you to join us."
