Sky 3D have bagged quite the three-dimensional coup this Christmas, as they’ve just announced that they will be the first UK TV broadcaster to show Avatar in full 3D.

Screening on Christmas Eve, it’ll be the first time many people will have had the chance to see the highest-grossing film of all time in 3D outside of cinema’s, as the 3D Blu-ray edition is exclusive to Panasonic customers.

John Cassy, Sky 3D’s Channel Director said: “Confirming Avatar in our Christmas line up for Sky 3D is a huge honour and fantastic news for customers.

“We’ve got an action packed schedule of 3D programmes on the channel over Christmas with everything from big movie blockbusters and all the major Barclays Premier League fixtures, to the history of pterosaurs with Sir David Attenborough’s Flying Monsters.

“We hope 3D will bring people together to enjoy a whole new television experience over this festive and special time of year.”

Sky’s 3D line-up, providing you’re on their top tier of service, is looking very healthy indeed now. Other 3D highlights include Alice in Wonderland and A Christmas Carol, while football fans will want to keep an eye out for Premiership crunch-match Chelsea Vs Mancheser Utd on Decmeber 19th.
