Sky preparing to bring 14th sport to 3D

Ahead of a more detailed feature on SVG Europe early next week, Sky has confirmed that it will broadcast Formula 1 in 3D for the first time during the next test at the Circuit de Catalunya from 28 February to 3 March – the last event before the 2013 F1 season commences in Australia.

The announcement means that F1 will become the 14th sport to be broadcast in 3D by Sky. Coverage will be presented by Simon Lazenby with commentary from David Croft and special guests.

Sky F1’s Martin Brundle comments: “This is a special moment for Formula 1 fans and exactly the kind of innovation and access that Sky Sports F1 promised. 3D will show us the real challenges of the race track with added depth and perspective. It will be a new, immersive experience for viewers and I can’t wait to see what F1 action in 3D will reveal.”
