Will we see more 21:9 screens in 2014?

I'd really like to get a 32/39/40" LED/LCD in 21:9, but I haven't really seen any. Still pisses me off everything skips from 32 to 40". I'd love a 34/36" HDTV. I'm curious as to when we'll know exactly what's being released this year. If I can't get a decent 21:9, I'd want a 32" with real low input lag. I keep hearing about this CES shit this week, but all anyone over at AVS wants to talk about is 100" 4K screens.

I wonder how many of those 21:9 TVs are permanently set to stretch mode? I bet 4x3 stuff looks just beautiful on them!

Nope.

I first saw 21:9 screens over 2 years ago in Hong Kong, and we're barely hearing more about them now here in the US. We won't see these ever hit the mainstream, they'll be sold mostly in high end electronics stores. A niche product at best.

So, can we talk about 100" screens, now?
