Amazon movies not full screen

I used to be able to download movies from Amazon and watch on my Series 3 without a problem. For the last few months, however, the movies play in kind of a "letterbox" format. Instead of filling up the whole screen, there is a wide black stripe at the top and bottom of the screen. Amazon tech support wasn't helpful. Anyone have any idea what is happening? Many thanks.

It sounds like you probably have a 16x9 tv set and you have probably been renting movies from amazon with an aspect ratio of 2.35 or 2.40.

This is not a problem...... do some research on "aspect ratio" and you will understand.
