Sky have revealed the full range of content headed to their 3D TV channel when it launches this coming October 1st.
From movies to sport and a fair few other titbits in-between, it’s looking like quite a healthy line-up so far.
In terms of sport, Sky will be giving a 3D makeover to the Ryder Cup from Celtic Manor, live Premier League football in October and November, rugby internationals featuring England, New Zealand and Australia and the world title boxing match-up between David Haye and Audley Harrison.
Plenty of movies will feature too. Ice Age; Dawn of The Dinosaurs, Monsters vs Aliens, Alice In Wonderland, Fly Me To The Moon, Bolt, Coraline, Cloudy with A Chance Of Meatballs and My Bloody Valentine will all be shown, whilst on-demand films are set to include Toy Story 3, Street Dance UK, Garfield’s Pet Force, Step Up 3 and A Christmas Carol.
Other programming will include The Prince’s Trust Rock Gala from the Albert Hall, Flying Monsters 3D featuring Sir David Attenborough, 3D Meerkats, and Bugs, narrated by Dame Judi Dench.
John Cassy, Sky 3D’s channel director said: “Sky 3D will totally change the way entertainment is viewed in homes across the country. “We see 3D as ‘Event TV’, an opportunity for people to share an incredible visual experience in their home, watching some of the biggest and best television available including; live sport, movies, entertainment and arts programmes.
“When people gathered round their new television sets to watch the Queens Coronation broadcast in colour, little did they know that in years to come images would eventually be leaping from their television screen with the introduction of 3D. The launch of the channel is the just the beginning, 3D has arrived and will change TV forever.”
