It means the format that the tv is veiwed in. Widescreen is in a 16/9 format where as the old format of most tube tvs was 4/3. Widescreen is now becoming the standart veiwing. Tvs that are widescreen also look wider and are less box looking. To my knowledge all lcd and Plazmas are this way. Not all channels are broadcasted this way but most newer tvs allow you to adjust the format.

I would like to buy a new tv at Walmart and would like to know if there is a recycle option for my old tv?

Hmmm that's a very good question. Unfortunately, Wal*Mart does not offer any official TV recycling program that I am aware of, but there are still a few options. First of all, call your local hazardous waste hotline and ask if they know of anything in the local area. Secondly, if the TV is still functional, you can use a service like freecycle (if you want to give it away) or craigslist (either give-away or sell) to get rid of it, if there is no other eco-friendly way to get rid of it. You could also google the name of your city or state followed by "recycle television sets" and see if you can find any local recyclers that way.
Best of luck to you.
