Freeview to look into 3D

Bookmark and Share

by David Allen

It had to happen sooner or later; the managing director of Freeview, Ilse Howling has confirmed that Freeview will be looking into the possibility of a Freeview 3D HDTV service in the future, giving households in the switchover zones something else to think about.

3D technology is moving fast and with BSkyB introducing it to the UK market, firstly to pubs in the spring and then to UK householders towards the end of the year, Freeview would be foolish to ignore this technology.

There is one outstanding issue when it comes to 3D HDTV, according to a report ordered by the regulator Ofcom it has been found that the 3D signal uses up to 1.8 more times bandwidth than a standard transmission, which may have an effect on whether 3D HDTV is shown on Freeview.
