Can all widescreens be viewed in 4:3?

Hi all,
Dad's 4:3 TV packed in. We have a Widescreen in another room that the mode can be switched to 4:3, super wide, subtitle zoom etc...

Anyhow, he's gonna have to buy a new widescreen TV, as I don't know if 4:3's can even be bought anymore

Does anyone know if this is a standard on all widescreen TV's? As he said he only wants to watch 4:3 out of habit

Thanks folks

Yes. Certainly any TV I've ever come across. You will have wide black bars down the sides in 4:3 which some people hate, and zoom up the picture to get rid of them (which I hate!)
