      Sky 3D Launches April 2010



      In April 2010, Sky plan to launch Sky 3D, Europe's first dedicated 3D TV channel. Initially, the channel will be available to commercial customers, offering a live Premier League match in 3D each week. Later in the year, as availability of 3D TV sets continues to grow, Sky plan to make Sky 3D available to all Sky+HD customers, with a wide range of 3D content including movies, sport, documentaries, entertainment and the arts. Sky 3D will work with all existing Sky+HD boxes and will initially be introduced at no extra cost for customers who subscribe to Sky's top TV package and the Sky+HD pack.

      As part of the preparations for this ground-breaking launch, Sky will broadcast the world's first live 3D TV sports event on 31 January 2010. Live coverage of the Premier League match between Arsenal and Manchester United will be filmed in 3D and broadcast over the Sky platform to selected pubs around the UK and Ireland.

      As part of the preparations for this ground-breaking launch, Sky will broadcast the world's first live 3D TV sports event on 31 January 2010. Live coverage of the Premier League match between Arsenal and Manchester United will be filmed in 3D and broadcast over the Sky platform to selected pubs around the UK and Ireland.

      Here is a bit of info on availability.
      5 TVs to choose from when Sky goes 3D - Pocket-lint

      I like this bit -
      Nine pubs across Britain will be showing the game - in London, Manchester, Cardiff, Edinburgh and Dublin - but the specific venues are being kept secret so that they're not mobbed with enthusiastic 3DTV nuts.
      I am sure the pubs in question will do all they can to keep it secret.

      Hi have a look at The "3D Ready" HDTV List 24 Oct 2009 ... This page lists High-Definition Televisions (HDTVs) and desktop ... The first " 3D Ready" HDTV was released by Samsung in April 2007. ...

      7 Jan 2008 ... Samsung shows off a new 3D-ready plasma television at the Consumer Electronics Show. YouTube - Samsung 3D-Ready Plasma TV

      With what is said on here might be better to get a pair of 3 D Glasses Installing a 3D-ready television might be premature - 16 September 2009 - New Scientist

      The only reason I didn't was because it was in the database before my post, yours would have been first and the question wouldn't have made sense. I wasn't really lazy lol

      When they make one that you can watch without glasses, I'll get one. 3D with glasses gives me a headache within 10 minutes.

      Will optically corrected glasses be available I wonder. It is bad enough being called an old 4 eyed git, without being called a 6 eyed one.
