Widescreen TV Settings On A Sky Box

Most new TV programmes are made in widescreen, but you need to tell your Sky digibox (set-top) box that you have a widescreen television set or you will just see stretched picture full of fat people. So, how do you do this…?

This guide will show you how to change your Sky Digibox Widescreen TV Settings from “normal” to “widescreen” settings so that you are able to enjoy more picture.

1. Press the Services button on your Sky remote control.

4. Chances are your box will be set to the factory default of 4:3. This is not correct for a 16:9 widescreen television.
