This is the analogue picture I receive.
The rest are digital pictures.
13 second video clip in MPEG4 format. (requires MS MPEG4 Codec)
This is a 16:9 Hi-Def channel ident.
Here they've taken a regular 4:3 picture and added a "wrapper" to make it 16:9.
If you watch this on a regular TV you won't see the blue border.
This is what happens when they send a 4:3 picture in 16:9 format.
On a regular TV the grey bars are not there.
Here is a 14:9 picture. This is an interim standard that allows a picture to be shown in both formats.
In 4:3 there will be some slight "letter boxing". In 16:9 there will be a slight border to the sides.
Note the Hi-Def resolution but the slow frame rate. This picture will still appear to flicker just as regular analogue TV does.
