SES Astra has confirmed its market leadership in 3D television by adding a demo channel from the Spanish operator Digital+ to its line-up. The Luxembourg-based company already distributes six commercial 3D channels, including BSkyB in the UK, Canal+ in France, Sky in Germany, Viasat in Scandinavia and Brava 3D and Penthouse 3D, catering for a pan-European audience.
It also features its own 3D demo channels, bringing the total number of channels in the format to eight.
The new demo channel from Digital+ is being broadcast from SES Astra’s 23.5 degrees East position and is available FTA across Europe.
The operator has launched the service, which will feature a variety of high quality 3D content including feature film clips and concert clips during daytime, to allow installers and retailers to showcase 3D television at points of sale.
