Fox Sports 3D is on the air on channel 200.
Featuring an advertising loop until live coverage starts at 6.30pm eastern, the channel is presented in high definition side by side 3D. On a 3D TV, you simply select side-by-side 3D viewing, put on your glasses and enjoy.
Those who do not have a 3D TV and do have the sports package, the HD package and an IQ2 will be able to see the 3D channel, but will see two split screens representing the left and the right vision that a 3D TV interlaces and interacts with the 3D glasses. The image on the screen rapidly flicks between the left and the right image while the glasses block the opposite eye from seeing the opposite image. This gives the illusion of 3D.
Here at Throng, in trialling the Samsung series 7 LED 55” 3D TV, the 3D imagery of the ad loop is spectacular, and really gives the viewer the impression that they are looking through a window straight into the soccer field.
While Nine’s broadcast of the State of Origin in 3D on Wednesday is a free to air TV first, the broadcast on FOX Sports 3D is the Australian first broadcast of a 3D event.
It screens tonight on the specially set-up 3D channel (Channel 200) called FOX SPORTS 3D. The coverage will also screen on FOX SPORTS 3HD (Channel 205) and FOX SPORTS 3 (Channel 503). You can record it to your IQ to relive the experience.
FOX SPORTS’ LIVE and EXCLUSIVE coverage of the Socceroos’ farewell match against New Zealand will begin at 6.30pm AEST this Monday, May 24 on FOX SPORTS 3HD and FOX SPORTS 3, with coverage commencing on FOX SPORTS 3D (Channel 200) at 7.20pm AEST before kick-off at 7.30pm AEST.
Visit Throng later tonight for a review of the game and coverage.
