16x9 (formerly branded as 16:9 and 16:9 - The Bigger Picture) is a Canadian investigative newsmagazine television program which airs on Global. The series debuted on November 30, 2008. The show was hosted by Mary Garofalo from September 2008 until October 2011, and is currently hosted by Carolyn Jarvis.

The title refers to the aspect ratio of 16:9 high definition television broadcasts which display a wider area, hence, a bigger picture, as opposed to 4:3 standard definition.[1]

Originally airing as a half-hour series, 16x9 has expanded to an hour-long program for the 2011-12 television season.[2]

The programme was nominated for a 2009 Gemini Award for Best News Information Series.[3]
