Movies are widescreen ... Because they were originally made for theater screens.  It used to be, they cropped the movie to fit TV screens - but that cut out action that wasn't centered, so now they keep the widescreen format.

TV shows are converting to widescreen format, due to the popularity of flat-screen TVs ... Which are more suitable to that format than older TVs were.
