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.

Disney+ is available for $6.99 a month, with other bundles such as its one with ad-supported Hulu and ESPN+ for $12.99 a month, and its new bundle with ad-free Hulu and ESPN+ for $18.99 a month.

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