Apple TV Requires A Widescreen TV – Why?

Apple TV requires a widescreen tv and won’t work on the model I have upstairs in in the family room. From their site:

Apple TV works with widescreen, enhanced-definition or high-definition TVs capable of 1080i, 720p, 576p, or 480p resolutions

I need a widescreen tv to watch a 23 meg Ask A Ninja episode? We already know the thing doesn’t do HD. Isn’t this overkill?

Was I premature in pre-ordering Apple TV?
