The Royal Ballet being filmed in hi-def 3D for BSkyB
Satellite broadcaster BSkyB is planning on offering original, high-definition 3D programming in 2010.
"3D is a genuinely 'seeing is believing' experience [and] next year we will make our HD boxes work even harder for customers by launching Europe's first 3D TV channel," said Brian Sullivan, the managing director of Sky's customer group.
In order to watch the programming a 3D capable TV plus glasses will be required. The cost of such sets is said to be comparable to current plasma TVs, so this will be initially for high end consumers only. But someday soon, as prices for technology fall, a European Ralph Kramden will finally get his wish.
