Correct, it is now up on the Sky website confirming that there will be no 3D coverage of the World Cup! Here's the blurb from their website. FAIL! ...Previous plans to produce 3D coverage of key matches from the tournament, including the Final, have been relunctantly cancelled after it was confirmed that the production company 3D Live, is no longer able to meet its production commitments. This decision was made independently of SKY TV, the Rugby World Cup Limited and production company 3D Live.

It will happen one day, remember Sky still has those UHF frequencies up their sleeve and were originally toying with the idea of using them for HD/3D broadcasts

With the correct setting applied, a good 3D TV and comfortable 3D glassess the experience is simply fantastic. I recently purchased a Sony 3D LED and out of the box it was average. After speaking with a Sony tech and fine tuning it, plus watching 3D Blu Ray filmed in 3D (not changed to 3D after filming) I am very impressed. So your not going to watch every damn thing in 3D but it is a nice feature to have and will only get better with more movies being filmed in true 3D. Eventually Sky will come on board as the market starts to get more 3D TV's out there and demand is higher. You try and buy a top end LED now without 3D built in. All the manufacturers are including 3D as standard now and if it's there i'm sure people will use it. Just give it time to mature. The in home 3D experience leaves the cinema for dead. Images come out at you a lot more and the glasses are far more comfortable and general picture better. Don't knock it until you have actually experienced it yourself. Everyone I have showed my 3D LED to has been amazed. Sure there are some set backs like viewing angles etc but it will only get better in time.

Yep have tried it, recently have installed 3 systems for clients with 3D and sat down and watched for sometime, but sorry now having done that with 3 top end systems from Sony and Pana I still find it painfull on my eyes and simply something I cannot see myself spending money on.

We bought a 3D TV recently and so far haven't experienced any negative effects, such as sore eyes or headaches etc. We didn't experience any problems either when watching "Avatar" on the large theatre screen. 

We have enjoyed watching on our TV, 3D DVDs, such as Jean-Michel Cousteau's "Ocean Wonderland", where the 3D effects are great!

I have heard that some so-called 3D DVDs were originally filmed in 2D and later "converted" to 3D. Perhaps it's these DVDs that may cause sore eyes etc?

Cheers
Fred
