Just curious.

How would a TV like the one pictured hold up to today's DVDs and broadcast TV?

What?

Still have? All new TVs ARE 16:9 (or very close to it). Old TVs were 4:3. The TV in your picture IS 16:9.

Yep the TV in the picture is a 16:9 same as all new TVs.

An old 4:3 TV would look very pixelated compared to the cheapest new flatscreen TV. I speak from experience, we recently retired the final 2 of our old TVs.
