Sky to let 3D TV die
Remember when everyone was telling you that 3D TV was the future and that, soon enough, we'd all be watching television with our goggles on, with weather reports leaping from our screens and Peter Simon having a nervous breakdown on BidUp TV like he was sat in our living rooms, crying all over the carpet?
Well, no-one really bought into it all, for a variety of reasons. Mainly because the whole thing was prohibitively expensive and, of course, nobody really wants to sit at home with 3D glasses on all night.
And now, Sky has acknowledged that there's very little appetite for 3D television and is semi-retiring it.
They'll be pulling the plug on their dedicated 3D channel this June. Don't worry if you can't live without your three-dimensional idiot lantern - they're moving all their 3D content to their On Demand library section. Basically, a holding pen for nerds.
It goes without saying that Sky will be courting 4K ultra tellies and aiming their arsenal at people who are foaming at the mouth about all that.
