Angel S2 in R4 - not widescreen?

Shane Aston has just sent me an interesting link to the Australian Fox Movies website. The page contains details of the upcoming DVD release of Angel Season 2, a release that last week was confirmed as being widescreen in Region 2. If you scroll to the bottom of the page, under DVD Details you find the line:

  • Aspect Ratio: 4:3 (1.33:1)
Shane informs me that historically this site has had few errors when it comes to specific release information of this sort, and one would have thought that information direct from the distributor's website was reliable. However, it seems very odd that Angel would be released in widescreen in Region 2, but pan & scan in Region 4, especially as these discs are often dual-encoded for both regions (hence avoiding the need for two seperate masters).

If this is indeed accurate, it will be very bad news both for Australian fans, and those back here in the UK who were hoping to take advantage of the lower price of the Region 4 set.
