Sky 3D may cost less than you think
The broadcaster is launching Sky 3D on October 1st 2010, following the success it has enjoyed since the April release of its commercial 3D channel, which is available in more than 1,500 pubs and clubs across the UK and Ireland.
Sky has preceded the grand unveiling with a high-profile marketing campaign, in which renowned technophile Stephen Fry has appeared in a promotional video waxing lyrical on the benefits of 3D viewing - you can watch it on the Sky website now.
With an impressive line-up of programmes already announced for Sky 3D - its launch weekend will include Ryder Cup golf and the 3D TV debuts of Bolt and Monsters vs Aliens - interest around the new technology has understandably been high.
However, despite the level of innovation involved, it won't cost you an arm and a leg to watch your favourite programmes in glorious 3D.
In fact, if you're signed up to Sky World with a high definition (HD) subscription and you've already got a compatible TV, it won't cost you a penny more to get the new channel.
If you're not with Sky at the moment but are keen to enjoy 3D TV, you can take out the Sky World pack with Sky+HD - which includes the Movies and Sports packs - for £61, plus you'll get plenty of added extras.
This package comes with free broadband, offering download speeds of up to 20Mb/s and a monthly allowance of 2GB, as well as evening and weekend home phone calls to UK landlines.
