When I rent a movie, why do I get black bars on the top and bottom of my TV?
Usually, clack bars indicate that you're able to see the WHOLE movie (similar to how it was shown in a movie theater).
Let us explain: The size of television is almost similar to a square (1.33:1). Meanwhile, most movies shown in the theater are similar to a rectangle (1.85:1 or 3.35:1).
Therefore, in order to show the movie on television, companies may cut-off the sides of the film which results in showing less of the actual film.
When the movie is cut-off on the sides (formatted to fit your TV), they call it "Standard".
When the entire movie is displayed on your TV (usually resulting in black bars at the top and bottom), it is called "Widescreen".
