Sky’s 3D television service is being viewed in half of the 140,000 households that have a 3DTV installed.
“3D has got off to a great start with around 70,000 customers having signed up to the service in its first few months,” said Sky CEO “We are very happy with the progress of 3D to date and are really encouraged by the feedback we are getting from customers”.
Sky 3D launched to the domestic audience in October 2010, but has been available in pubs and clubs since Easter Saturday.”
Sky is approaching its 100th live sports 3D broadcast, transmitting at least one Premier League game per week. Champions League football, Premiership rugby and championship darts are also a regular part of the schedule.
Last week, Sky’s chief engineer Chris Johns said told the DTG that higher than expected sales of 3DTV sets in the UK were helping to increase the number of subscribers seeing the satcaster’s 3D channel.
