I know this has been asked before but I compared two scenes from the
Long Dark in the "Letterbox" version to the original broadcast version
and there is a clear cropping of the scenes.  You have said that it
isn't the Sci-Fi channels fault but that of WB, so does the Sci-Fi
channel have any recourse to get a properly done letterbox version to
broadcast.  This is becoming quite annoying when all you can see in a
close up head shot is the actors nose and eyes and a little upper lip

They're working on the situation now to try and rectify this with WB.
