Sky to air Eurosport's live 3D French Open coverage
Sky will broadcast 3D footage of the 2012 French Open live from Roland Garros thanks to an agreement with Eurosport.
A live three-dimensional feed from centre court will be available from May 28th to June 10th, marking the third consecutive year that the grand slam tennis tournament has been produced and made available to fans in 3D.
Eurosport landed a three-year extension to its broadcasting arrangement with the French Tennis Federation in January.
Jean Thierry Augustin, Eurosport's managing director of rights acquisition, distribution and development, pointed out that the sports broadcaster was the first to present live tennis in 3D when it aired footage from the 2010 French Open.
Director of Sky 3D John Cassy added: "We're delighted to be partnering with Eurosport and bringing our customers live action from the French Open, as well as the first 3D Olympics this summer."
Eurosport has committed to broadcasting more than 100 hours of 3D content from London 2012, including the men's 100m final, with this coverage set to be available to Sky viewers.
More than 250,000 homes, as well as thousands of pubs, already have access to the pay TV giant's 3D channel.
