Sky and TV manufacturers LG have teamed up to deliver the first 3D broadcasts to UK consumers. But it wont be coming into your living room. Nope, you’re going to have to take a trip down to your local to watch Arsenal vs. Manchester United in full eye-popping 3D.
Nine select pubs will be showing the match on LG’s 47 inch LD920 screens as a test run for Sky’s 2010 3D roll-out.
‘LG is committed to making high quality TV more accessible and this initiative with Sky does just that.’ said Stephen Gater, head of marketing, Home Entertainment LG UK. ‘2010 will see the realisation of many exciting technologies in TVs – 3D is just one of them. With exciting developments like these, watching television in the home will soon be an even more exciting, immersive and powerful experience.’
3D glasses down the boozer? Not sure about that to be honest. It brings a whole new meaning to the term “Beer Goggles” though I suppose.
