1 October. That’s the launch date for those on the bleeding edge of technology, as Sky plans to launch its 3D service. Sky has been trialling the extra dimension in selected pubs since April, and sport will be one of the channels that’s broadcast in 3D.
The other main draw will be movies, with films such as Monsters Vs Aliens, Alice In Wonderland and Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince already on the slate.
Hollywood’s latest obsession with the 3D format will then produce an increasing amount of content.
The service will only be available to those who pay for the company’s Sky+HD package, and users will also need a 3D-compatible TV.
Sky also revealed that a number of arts and entertainments shows will also be shown in 3D, although those programmes won’t be confirmed until closer to the launch date.
