Sky Set To Launch 3D TV

Sky are gearing up to take the next step in 3D.
The broadcasters are now planning the launch of the Sky 3D television channel on 1st October this year.
Focusing on sport and movies, the launch will coincide with the Ryder Cup championship, while 3D movies such as Monsters vs Aliens, Alice in Wonderland and Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince will be screened.
The 3D service, which requires 3D glasses to be worn, is now available in more than 1,500 locations. It will be compatible with a number of 3D enabled sets from manufacturers including Sony, Samsung, LG and Panasonic.
Sky+HD viewers with a 3D equipped television will also be able to access the service.
Alongside sporting events, including the Premier League, Sky will also be launching a range of 3D arts and entertainments shows.
The launch announcement comes as Sky struck an agreement with US cable channel HBO, home of The Sopranos and Six Feet Under, to broadcast its programmes in the UK.
The broadcaster has also secured the rights to HBO's back catalogue, which will be accessible on their on-demand services.
