The Wire Remastered (starts 9/4) Not in Guide

Hello,

I am excited about recording the series but I cannot find it in the Tivo listing to setup a season pass! The original airing was 4:3.

Guess a wish list will accomplish the same thing.

Filo.

I checked zap2it and I don't see a listing for the Wire. Are you sure it starts 9/4? What channel is it supposed to be on?

Looks like HBO Signature per the articles, but HBO.com doesn't list it either on their schedule.

Sept 4 was the original plan but supposedly there was a delay? Some sites are still saying it's the 4th on HBOSig. Apparently there's confusion all around.

Sheeeit! I was looking at HBO Signature too.

Will place a wishlist for all episodes and see what happens.

I believe I read Amazon Instant (Prime streaming) is using the 16x9 version as well.

So, if the original airing was 4:3, this is most likely CROPPING of the top and bottom. So you are getting LESS picture than you were previously... Just zoom the 4:3 version and you'll likely get approximately the same thing.

(I say 'most likely', since it's _possible_ that they composed it for 16:9, but recorded it 4:3.. Seems a bit early for that though.)

Other way around...shot on widescreen film, but composed for 4:3. Only the first three seasons, though.

HBO pulled it from their schedule. They were shooting for Sept 4, but had some issues. There is no date announced yet.

A WL will work.

There are some side by side images of the 16:9 Amazon version and 4:3 original out there, and the widescreen version is showing more of the scene, not less.

Anyone know an update about this? I never watched it but I would start recording the hd version to check it out.

I saw an ad this weekend on HBO...
HBO Signature marathon will play all five seasons consecutively, beginning Friday, Dec. 26 at Noon/11c, and ending on Tuesday, Dec. 30. (The show will be available in HD on HBO GO starting Dec. 26, as well.)
