Sky have today confirmed that they will be broadcasting Avatar in 3D on Christmas Day on Sky 3D.

Avatar, the biggest grossing film in cinematic history, will be given its 3D TV world premiere this Christmas Eve when it is broadcast on Sky 3D (channel 217) at 8pm.

Sky 3D is available to all Sky+ HD customers who have a 3D TV and Sky’s top TV package.

Other programs confirmed for Sky’s 3D channel include:

- Sir David Attenborough’s Flying Monsters 3D - a ground breaking documentary about the evolution of pterosaurs
- The Prince’s Trust Rock Gala 3D - featuring Tom Jones, Eric Clapton and Brian May
- Alice in Wonderland - Tim Burton’s reworking starring Johnny Depp will be broadcast New Year’s Eve

3D viewers will also be able to live Barclays Premier League matches played over Christmas including; Chelsea vs Manchester United (19th December) Man City vs Everton (20th December) Arsenal vs Chelsea (27th December) and Liverpool vs Wolves (29th December).

From 6th January Sky 3D will exclusively broadcast all three of Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story films in 3D.

However, while Toy Story and Toy Story 2 will be free in 3D, Toy Story 3 3D will only be available as pay-per-view, which may rankle Sky customers already paying for the top end package.
