Why Women Kill appears to be 2.39:1 (I didn't measure, but it's definitely fully widescreen); but unfortunately for CIH setups the (very cool) opening title sequence is full screen 16:9.

Batwoman confirmed as 2.0:1. Well, I'm putting it down as that, but a tiny sliver of picture overshot the 2.0:1 zoom preset on my projector, yet was decidedly wider than 1.85:1. It may be something like 1.95:1, but it's hard to measure without a good screenshot.

This is the first broadcast network show I can remember seeing in 2.00:1.
Season Finale turned out to be 2.39:1.

This list is updated constantly. New additions include Living with Yourself on Netflix and Limetown on Facebook Watch.

New addition (among others): Daybreak on Netflix.

I also just discovered that Nailed It! is 1.85:1. My wife primarily watches that one on a bedroom TV with some overscan, so I never noticed.

Finally, I added a section to the bottom of the list for shows with scene-to-scene variable aspect ratios. They're not Constant Height safe, but I figure they're of interest to CIH viewers.

Thanks. Both of these USA shows appear to have an oddball ratio of about 1.95:1.

The CW's All American, both seasons (went back and checked the pilot). Likely 2.00:1?

Is anyone planning to subscribe to Apple TV+? I've added a section to the list for that with preliminary info based on the available trailers. It's looks like they'll have three shows wider than 16:9, but I could use confirmation of those and others.

Sounds like each series has 1-2 free episodes available.

Hmm, interesting. I watched a couple episodes of the first season and don't recall noticing that it was wider than 16:9 at the time, but the trailers I'm finding on YouTube do measure 2.0:1.

I got the free year with an Apple TV I got for Disney +. I'll run a few minutes of each when I get a moment.

edit: Ghostwriter is 2.0 and The Elephant Queen is 1.9, but I don't think the latter will be a continuing series.

Not to doubt you, but could you double check Ghostwriter? The trailers on YouTube are exactly 16:9.





Elephant Queen seems to be a movie, so I don't think I'll add that to the list.

The first episode of Ghostwriter was exactly the same as Morning Show, which I assumed that was correctly measured at 2.0. I was watching on a TV, not my CIH screen; the letterboxing was obviously intentional. I'll try more episodes to confirm.

Dickinson and Snoopy were 16x9

OK, thanks. I'll add it to the list for now. This could just be a case of the trailer being open-matte. Let me know what you find with subsequent episodes.

Clicked through the other episodes of Ghostwriter and they were all 2.0:1. I also confirmed that See was indeed about 2.1:1 and For all Mankind and Morning Show are 2.0:1, as you measured on trailers.

I appreciate you checking all these out.

Disney+ launches soon, but I should be able to sample that myself with a one-year free trial though my Verizon account.

I went through all of the Disney+ original series. Aside from The Mandalorian (2.35:1), the rest of their original shows are all 16:9.

I don't think it would be fair to call Pixar SparkShorts a TV series. It's just a collection of short films, many of which played theatrically in front of Disney or Pixar features. Of those currently available, most are 16:9. However, Lava (which originally played with Inside Out) is 2.35:1. I don't think I'm going to add this to the list.

Edit: Kitbull and 'Smash and Grab' are also scope.

Take a look at the Legend of the Three Caballeros. It is something odd, maybe 1.9:1or 1.95:1. Perhaps underscanned a little as well. Seems to be a one and done 13 episode series, though, so maybe not worthy of the list.

I missed that one but will take a look this weekend. I have other miniseries and limited series on the list, so no reason not to include that one. Thanks.

This looks to be 1.85:1 to me. Weird choice for a young kids' cartoon.

Amazon calls The Kasey Musgraves Christmas Show a "series" and it's listed as episode 101, but I can't find any confirmation that there will be more episodes. It looks like more of a one-off special, but I'll add it to the list for now.
