I think you're right that there is a demand for old series to be shown in widescreen on broadcast TV.
That's why we have the horrendous-looking Seinfeld and TNG on BBC-A. I don't think people realize just how much content is cut.
I think nearly everything pre 16:9 is cropped in the UK, except the HD TNG - since the black bars are part of the picture. I don't think there is a native 4:3 HD format so it has to be done that way.

And to be honest I've watched some of DS9 and Voyager that way, and can forget it was ever 4:3
