Sky 3D tees off

New channel gets going with Ryder Cup coverage

Official launch includes 3D Ryder Cup and two 3D flicks.

Sky 3D has teed off this morning, ending months of waiting for the UK’s first complete 3D channel. The new offering, which has already aired 3D football games in pubs across the country, is showing the Ryder Cup from Celtic Manor right now.

On top of being able to feel like you’re right there in south Wales, getting drenched with the world’s top golfers, you’ll also be able to immerse yourself in two movies over the weekend too: Monsters vs. Aliens and Bolt.

Of course, to play nice you’ll need a 3D TV, the requisite specs and a Sky+HD box with the best package available. If you have, then best hope the US wives don’t rush the green on the 17th, Brookline-style. Their 3D visages will be realistic enough that you’ll probably go berserk and end up destroying your pricey new boobtube.
