    Why show this on Arena. At least show it on FOX8 so we can view it in Widescreen, or maybe Foxtel could pull their finger out and start broadcasting Arena in widescreen.

    Jezus the FTA’s have really dropped the ball on awards nights this year.

    Not to mention the hideously placed ‘watermark’.

    Disappointing that is on Arena as this means it won’t even be widescreen or be broadcast on a HD channel.
