Sky backs LG 3D TVs ahead of new channel launch

Broadcaster endorses LG tellies ahead of Oct 2nd launch

Ryder Cup in 3D coming on October 2nd.

While this isn't the biggest surprise in the tech world this week, it's interesting to note that Sky will be recommending LG 3Ds to its subscribers ahead of the full launch of the Sky 3D channel next month.

LG TVs were already bought up by the broadcaster as part of the 3D pubs trial that began last year, so it makes sense that the two companies have alligned in what's being described as an official partnership.

LG is currently the only manufacturer offering both active and passive 3D technology, which may have influenced Sky's decision as viewers can experience passive 3D in the pubs and active in the home.

Sky's 3D channel will officially open for business on October 2nd with coverage of the Ryder Cup golf match between the USA and Europe at Celtic Manor. 3D previews are already available via the Sky HD+ box.
