Sky Confirms 3D Television Channel Launching In 2010

Will operate on existing infrastructure and hardware.

British HD television provider Sky HD says they will begin providing a 3D television channel next year. Offering a variety of programmings from movies and standard television to sporting events, this is a huge move for Sky.

This channel will use Sky’s existing infrastructure and will work with current generation set top boxes, so there’s no need to buy additional hardware. Of course, a 3D ready television will also be required to view the content, which may make the move prohibitive for subscribers.

While 3D proves popular in theaters, it’s still a fairly untested market within the home, and the results of this venture will be very telling.
