Sky 3D TV channel set to make football history

Sky is set to embrace the 3D TV revolution by switching on Sky 3D, it’s first dedicated 3D channel in April.

 

The broadcasters who announced last year that they would launch a 3D TV channel in 2010, have already showed off its 3D capabilities, but now plans to give football fans a taster of what is to come by showing the Premier League match between Arsenal and Manchester United in 3D.

The top of the table clash Sky claims will be the world’s first live sports 3D TV broadcast, despite last October’s Club America versus Guadalajara tie in South America receiving the full 3D treatment.

 

Nine pubs located in London, Manchester, Cardiff, Edinburgh and Dublin will be kitted out with 3D-ready TVs in preparation of Sunday’s big game. Sky Sports will produce two edits of the live coverage, one for the Sky Sports HD channel and the other for a 3D feed. Eight 3D camera rigs housing Sky’s high definition cameras will deliver those all important stereoscopic camera angles of Rooney and Fabregas in action.

 

When the channel launches in April, Sky plans to deliver 3D footy to hundreds of other pubs across the country, so fans can enjoy the climax of the football season in the new visual format.

 

As the likes of Sony, Samsung, Panasonic and Toshiba begin delivering their 3D TV offerings to the masses, Sky will begin making its 3D channel available to current Sky+HD customers.

 

Sky 3D can be accessed with current technology packed into Sky+HD set-top boxes, so all you’ll need is a suitable 3D telly and a pair of 3D glasses.

 

Sky+HD customers will be happy to know that they can enjoy Sky 3D ‘initially’ at no extra charge as long as you are already subscribing to Sky’s top package and Sky HD pack.

 

With Sony also set to film the World Cup in 3D, we can most certainly look forward to a 3D football feast in 2010.
