Our news item containing the Desperate Housewives press release was met with a flurry of emails regarding the Full Frame aspect ratio. The show has aired in widescreen on the ABC HD feed, and fans were looking forward to enjoying a widescreen transfer of the show on DVD so they were a bit shocked, and upset, when the press release didn't meet their expectations. We spent most of the day calling people at Buena Vista Home Entertainment to determine if the press release was correct, or why they decided to go with a Full Frame transfer. They didn't have an immediate answer, but said they would get back to us.
We just received a phone call to let us know that the video transfer will be Anamorphic Widescreen (1.78:1). That's all the information we have; we don't know whether the original press release was simply incorrect, or if a change was made due to the feedback from fans. A revised press release should be available later today or Monday.
