Sky3D Will Close in June
The British Sky 3D channel will be removed in June and all of the 3D stereoscopic content will instead only be available on demand. Sky is promising "over 60 shows and movies available On Demand in 3D".
Sky's 3D channel has previously shown tentpole movies such as Avatar and Flying Monsters 3D. Currently the channel broadcasts in the evenings showing a mixture of TV and film content, alongside on demand 3D content.
Today Sky is announcing the latest development in their plans for 3D. From June Sky 3D is going fully on demand. From the latest 3D movie premieres like Guardians of the Galaxy, X-Men Days of Future Past and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, to the very best in natural history with documentaries like Natural History Museum Alive, it will all be ready and waiting for Sky customers to view whenever it suits them.
Luke Bradley-Jones, Brand Director, SKY TV Products said: "The changes to 3D are all part of making our on demand offering a fantastic destination for customers. Other recent enhancements that benefit millions of connected customers include putting on demand content front and centre on the Sky+ TV Guide, adding more of the very best Box Sets such as Prison Break and Game of Thrones, and securing rights to even more shows and sport."
