Set the overscan to 3%.  That is the way the TV stations intend the material
to be watched.  That is what TV sets do.  When you take a photo to get a
print made, if you pick borderless, that is what is done as well.  Printers
do it automatically when you make a print.  That is how it is dealt with.
Try it.
