Why do I have black bands on the top and bottom of the screen when I watch a DVD movie?

Why do I have black bands on the top and bottom of the screen when I watch a DVD movie?

When you purchase/rent a DVD movie that is formatted as a letterbox or widescreen version you are going to have black bands of empty space on the top & bottom of the picture. Simply put, when a movie is shot for the theaters it is basically a rectangle while a TV is square. To reproduce the movie the way it was in the theater they need to keep the picture as a rectangle which produces the empty space on the top & bottom of the movie. You are getting the picture the way it was meant to be seen unlike the full screen version that needs to cut of the sides of the picture to fill the screen. More studios are releasing a standard or Pan & Scan version of the movies that will fill the TV screen but you will lose part of the picture.
