Disney has been planning on updating older episodes of the beloved animated comedy “The Simpsons” for several months on Disney+
Well, the day has come where Disney+ users are seeing an option to watch those said older episodes of the TV series in its original 4:3 aspect ration. Previously, they were only available in 16:9, which made users get the whole screen filled with the episode, whereas, with the 4:3 aspect ratio, they will get letterboxes on the side of the episode they are watching.
The difference in viewing qualities can be seen in the photos below:
What makes this a little more interesting is that to appease Disney+ users who might like having the 16:9 aspect ratio and the ones who will want the 4:3 version, Disney+ is enabling users to have both versions and allowing them to switch to the version they want to view.

It is available to stream on the iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Apple TV and Mac.
