Sky to show FA Cup match in 3D
Man C, Man C, Man C vs Stoke, Stoke, Stoke
Sky will broadcast this year's FA Cup final, between Manchester City and Stoke City, live in 3D on 14 May - without ad breaks to spoil the effect, apparently.
Sky World subscribers with a Sky+ HD box and a 3D TV will be able to watch the match at home in 3D.
Every other footie fan will have to visit one of the 1500-odd pubs nationwide that have Sky 3D in place.
Sky's programming, fed to it from sports channel ESPN, which is the one recording the event, will begin at 2.30pm and run through to 6.30pm. It pledged there would be no ads - other than those around the back and plastered over the players - until "after the trophy presentation". ®
...still to be one dimensional?
But the only reason
I bought a 3dTV subscribe to skys' extortionate package was to watch Barry Sheen sell me Cillit Bang in 3d :(
Come on, The Potters!
... all thirty-three of you!
Red & white stripes. Ta duck.
How good of sky
To not have ads in a premium 3D channel that's available at an extra cost over the standard non 3D channel...so long as you already pay the extra cost to have the HD subscription....and the extra cost to have the Sports channel in the first place.
Doesn't give me a headache. Certainly far less so than opinion masquerading as fact on these forums.
