bt vision logo.jpgHot on the heels of Sky’s 3D channel launch, BT have just announced that a raft of 3D films will soon be available to their BT Vision customers.

Signing a 12 month deal with NBC Universal International Television Distribution and a seperate deal with Vertigo, BT Vision customers will soon be able to enjoy films such as StreetDance, Step Up 3D and Despicable Me, all in eye-popping 3D.

StreetDance in 3D will cost viewers £5.99 (£4.99 for HD £ 3.99 for SD), Step Up 3D will be £5.99 (£4.99 for HD £3.99 for SD) and Despicable Me pricing will be available early next year.

Marc Watson, chief executive of BT Vision, said: “We already have an extensive catalogue of more than 500 movies in the UK courtesy of our long-term deals with major Hollywood studios and independents like Vertigo. Now Vision viewers can experience films at home in fantastic 3D, thanks to these new deals.”

While the offering isn’t quite as comprehensive as what Sky or Virgin are currently touting, it’s a promising start, and one that BT are keen to stress is only the beginning of a larger service still to come.

“This is just the start of 3D on Vision”, explained Watson. “Viewers can expect to hear much more from us in the coming months.”
