Virgin Media launches 3D movie rentals

For the few with 3D TVs

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Virgin Media is to join Sky and launch a channel of 3D content for the one bloke who bought a 3D TV.

Having lashed out a grand or three on said screen, plus a couple of hundred pounds more for the specs, he can now have the pleasure of paying VM for a subscription and V HD or V+ HD set-top box.

The operator's 3D movies with then be available for six-quid a pop on top of that though VM's on-demand rental service.

Upcoming titles include StreetDance 3D, Garfield’s Pet Force 3D, Disney’s A Christmas Carol 3D, Step Up 3D and Despicable Me 3D. So we hope he's a nipper or an urban yoof popper at heart.

Those films will be added to the list of titles over the coming months, which means there's not going to be much choice from the off. Once you've rented one, you have 24 hours to finish watching it.

Sky's in-home 3D TV service launches on Friday, 1 October. ®
