HD bandwidth limits BBC Olympics 3D coverage

Highlights show, two ceremonies, one race

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

The BBC has revealed what parts of next summer Olympic Games it plans to beam into homes in glorious 3D-o-Vision.

And it's not an awful lot, really. The opening and closing ceremonies will be transmitted in 3D, as will "nightly highlights" of each day's athletic antics.

We were hoping for the ladies' beach volleyball tournaments to get the 'out of the screen and in yer face' treatment, but we'll have to make do with the men's 100m final instead.

We'll seeing what's on the other side, then…

And that's your lot. Even the main ceremonies may not be shot and streamed entirely in 3D, but in general Auntie is keeping the 3D stuff to a minimum to ensure there's sufficient bandwidth to present as many of the events live in HD as possible. Which is probably the sensible approach, given the inevitably gimmicky nature of 3D. ®
