It is often said there is a dearth of available 3D content, but Viasat has announced plans to screen two football matches in 3D on the same night.
The Nordic platform is picking up on coverage of Manchester United v Marseille and Bayern München v Inter. While the Manchester United game will be carried live, Bayern München will be taped delayed and follow immediately afterwards. The two matches will also be shown live by BSkyB and Sky Deutschland.
Viasat will show the matches to subscribers in Sweden, Norway and Denmark next Tuesday, March 15, at 20.45 CET.
The dual broadcast will be the sixth time Viasat has used the stereoscopic format following earlier coverage of the English Premier League, National Hockey League and the PGA golf tour.
The 3D satellite broadcasts are made in co-operation with SES-Astra. Viasat 3D is made in partnership with Samsung.
