Stephen Fry presents Sky 3DTV guide

Bookmark and Share

by Darren Allan

Stephen Fry has been roped in, sorry, has volunteered himself to present a guide for Sky’s new 3D channel, aimed at educating the uninitiated in the wonders of three dimensional television.

Fry is a good choice because of his long professed love of all things gadget related, particularly Apple’s toys such as the iPhone and iPad.

The four minute video has Fry discussing how “unconvincing” 3D was back in the old days (for those who remember Jaws 3D in the eighties). He says that 3DTV is “no longer a gimmick, and it is poised to revolutionise the way we enjoy our entertainment.”

He explains the difference between active and passive 3D technology (fancy shutter glasses versus the cinema kind), before going on to sketch out the skinny on the Sky 3D channel, and what it will show (mainly films and sport to begin with). You can watch the video here.

Sky 3D is due to launch on October 1st, and will automatically be available for no extra charge to Sky+HD subscribers. Although you will need a 3DTV set and glasses to experience it, of course.

  1. Has anyone else noticed that sky 3D has been listed on the TV guide for a long time now? I got Sky HD a few months ago and it’s always been listed on the guide and shows programs in 3D.
