When did J-Dramas Start Being Broadcast in Widescreen?

Post by Madoka » Aug 5th, '18, 05:41

I noticed that many of the older shows (like early 2000's) now getting released as DVDrips or TBS stream captures are in widescreen which makes me think that they had to be filmed that way. So I've been wondering when they started broadcasting the shows on air as widescreen?

Thanks!

Kinpachi season 5 is from 1999 and already recorded in HD and widescreen.

Maybe they were cropped to remove the top and bottom to make them widescreen like Dragon Ball Z Kai.
