Sky to broadcast 3D Football by the end of the year

Sky TV has announced that it plans to broadcast football matches in 3D before the end of the year. The broadcaster has already started testing the technology by filming in 3D at various stadiums across the country ready to roll out the technology further.

To watch the 3D content, viewers will need a Sky HD box and a 3D compatible TV along with a set of 3D glasses. This does limit how effective it may be within a pub or large social environment but at home viewers will be able to see it too.

Sports will probably make up a large part of 3D content to start with on Sky, until there is more content available, made for 3D.
