The BBC will be broadcasting the finals of the Wimbledon tennis tournament in 3D for the third year running, despite the low numbers of 3D-capable HDTV owners in the UK. The finals and semi-finals in both the men’s and women’s competitions will be shown live on the broadcaster’s “Red Button” service in the United Kingdom in 3D, as part of the corporation’s trials with 3D content.
Personally, I am a fan of 3D when it is done right. This is the case in wildlife documentaries. However, when I see a TV broadcaster saying that certain events are being shown in 3D, I don’t really care about that minor thing. With only 1.5 million 3D TVs in the UK(less than 5% of the UK’s TV-owning population), I think it’s safe to say that 3D TV has not really caught on with the masses in the UK.
However, what I really want to see the TV vendors doing is promoting 4K(ultra high definition) in the TVs that they make. That being said, the content is going to take some time to reach the mainstream.
