Not in HD mode, no - they do in SD, but the HD spec requires all material to be 16:9, with narrower material pillarboxed at source. Sky could easily include such a setting to do it, but they don't.
My TV, and pretty much every modern TV I've used, lets you change the aspect ratio to 4:3 regardless of resolution. It's a standard feature of TVs.
