Sky moves toward 3D broadcast

Sky TV says it has made a significant step towards bringing 3D television to British viewers.

The satellite broadcaster has successfully tested the delivery of 3D programming to a domestic television, via a high-definition set-top box.

Sky has been filming a number of events using 3D cameras over recent months. Such broadcasts would require the use of 3D televisions, not yet available in UK stores, and viewers would need to wear 3D polarising glasses.

Sky says it has gone further by showing that 3D could be delivered into homes, straight to its Sky+HD set-top box, without much difficulty. Sky is stressing it is not making a product launch, but producing a technological demonstration.
