Sky's 3D channel arrives on Friday
Sky’s 3D TV channel will go live this Friday with a line-up of sport, films and documentaries planned for its inaugural months.
The first event to be shown in 3D will be the upcoming Ryder Cup tournament, a sport that is unlikely to benefit from the format all that much. Besides that soccer, rugby and boxing events are also in line to be shown on the channel during October and November.
Films like Tim Burton’s Alice In Wonderland, Aliens Vs Monsters and Ice Age 3 will also be available to view in 3D, as will a number of nature documentaries and musical events.
The 3D channel will be available to all Sky customers already on the highest package available on the Sky+HD service. A 3D TV will also be required, with companies like Samsung and Sony having compatible models available in Irish shops already.
