Sky 3D have today announced plans to broadcast its first ever live Formula One in 3D.
This exciting news will enable viewers to watch the third test session from the Circuit de Catalunya on Sky 3D.
Sky 3D will show all four days of the session from February 28th to March 3rd, as well as simulcast in standard and high definition on Sky Sports F1.
Martin Brunde, Sky’s F1 commentator said: “This is a special moment for Formula 1 fans and exactly the kind of innovation and access that Sky Sports F1 promised.
“3D will show us the real challenges of the race track with added depth and perspective. It will be a new, immersive experience for viewers and I can’t wait to see what F1 action in 3D will reveal.”
Sky’s director of 3D John Cassy said: “[3D has] proved a huge success with other sports, and now for the first time ever, 3D will bring TV viewers a new perspective on Formula 1.
“This cements our commitment to innovation and investment in 3D, and it’s the latest first by Sky following our recent work on Galapagos with Sir David Attenborough. As the leading 3D pioneer, Sky is delighted to be able to bring this entirely new experience to Sky 3D viewers and F1 fans.”
