      Exclusive: Sky+3D on its way?

      Update: 18th December 2008 - Our review of Sky's possible 3DTV venture.

      The rumour mills are working over time this week.

      We can reveal unofficially, that Sky are working on, and have very recently demonstrated to some of their staff, the capabilities and viewing of 3D TV on a Sky+HD box.

      Unofficial reports of Sky+3D being the name of this new technology, and it would appear to be using a standard Sky+HD box as the decoding equipment.

      Also rumoured, is the fact that to watch the Sky+3D on your TV at home, you would be wearing a decent pair of 'Ray-Ban Wayfarer 3D' glasses, instead of the free paper ones on the cover of a magazine. These are already in existence, well at Sky towers they are, anyway.

      We are not sure of how soon this would come to being launched, however, it would appear that the technology is already here, its just a case of if and when.

      Just imagine going to the pub, and watching the football or boxing on a large screen, in 3D, I guess it would appear that you are actually there.

      We have asked Sky for more information, and will get back to you soon....

      It does sound a great idea
      I love watching those films from the 80s that require those glasses!

      Another couple of messages that the demo did take place, so to quote those famous words from Mythbusters, this rumour is 'Confirmed'

      HD quality 3D would be something worth watching BUT it will be a pain in the rear end with glasses especially with younger children.

      The BBC was experimenting with 3D programs without the need for glasses a while back
