Sky talks up 3D channel attractions

If there's nothing on the other side...

The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

Hot on the heels of rival telly transmitter Virgin Media, Sky has announced what its 3D channel, which launches later this week, will offer.

Films due to be beamed over in 3D include Ice Age, Dawn of The Dinosaurs, Monsters vs Aliens, Coraline, Alice In Wonderland, Bolt, Fly Me To The Moon, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and My Bloody Valentine.

In January 2011, Sky 3D will broadcast all three Toy Story films in 3D: Toy Story 3 will be available pay per view, bundled with the first two films in the series.

Other 3D offerings include The Prince’s Trust Rock Gala concert, plus documentaries on dinosaurs, ballet, insects, the planets, stately homes and meerkats.

Oh, and some blokes will be filmed kicking and/or throwing balls around, for those of you of a more athletic disposition.

Sky 3D begins broadcasting on 1 October. ®
