Yep, Eurosport finally went widescreen in their HD channel. Eurosport 1 and
2 standard channels are still 4:3.

Sky and Eurosport also broadcast some events in HD with the BBC being the
first UK channel to broadcast HD Tennis with their Wimbledon coverage in
2006.

What's really interesting is both Sky and the BBC have done test trials
with 3D coverage of various events. Awesome if we could watch Wimbledon in
3D with the same quality level as IMAX.

Eurosport(not hd) here in Finland shows all programs in 4:3 and not
widescreen which displeasures myself greatly...

How about there?
How about Eurosport hd?
