Not necessarily. Some early wide screen (16:9)  TVs were still SD only. And some 4:3 TVs support HD.

I remember a couple of "HD" TVs that were 4 x 3 (with resolutions like 480p and 720p. But I don't remember ever seeing a 16 x 9 TV that didn't have at least 720p.

Oh yeah. Some of the early DLP rear projection TVs were 16:9 screen but only supported 480i/480p inputs.
