Sky 3D to Go Live October 1 Across Europe

During the world cup, Sky broadcast some of the matches in 3D. We now hear that the Sky 3D service is rolling out across Europe on the 1st October.

To use the service you’ll need to have a 3D TV and a Sky+HD service. When the channel first goes live, you’ll have access to the following programs…

· This year’s Ryder Cup, with three days of live coverage from Celtic Manor, as Europe take on the US in the most eagerly awaited golf event of the year
· Two of the biggest grossing 3D films to date – Bolt and Monster vs. Aliens – will make their 3DTV debuts

Moving towards Christmas a number of other programs will launch…

The Sky 3D channel line-up will then continue to expand in the run-up to Christmas with a number of movie titles including: Alice in Wonderland; Ice Age Dawn of the Dinosaurs; Coraline; Fly Me To The Moon, Harry Potter & The Half Blood Prince and My Bloody Valentine. Sky has agreed with Disney, Fox, Universal, Warner Brothers, Paramount and DreamWorks to showcase the very best of Hollywood in 3D.

For those who already subscribe to Sky+HD the service will come for free and no set-top box upgrade will be required.
