There's an Issue with 'The Simpsons' on Disney+; Fix is Coming

Disney+ went live this week and the full library of The Simpsons episodes is among the content available on the new streaming service.

An issue has been reported with the way The Simpsons is being presented on the service, but a fix is on the way.

The Simpsons has been on the air since 1989, long before widescreen was the standard picture format for television. But, Disney+ is showing all episodes in the widescreen 16:9 aspect ratio, which loses visual quality.

“We presented The Simpsons in 16:9 aspect ratio at launch in order to guarantee visual quality and consistency across all 30 seasons. Over time, Disney+ will roll out new features and additional viewing options. As part of this, in early 2020, Disney+ will make the first 19 seasons (and some episodes from Season 20) of The Simpsons available in their original 4:3 aspect ratio, giving subscribers a choice of how they prefer to view the popular series,” the company said in a statement.
