Both Simon Rexworthy, controller of acquisitions at Sky Movies, and Ian Lewis, director of Sky Movies, explained to Pocket-lint that 3D sports content could occupy a dedicated Sky Sports 3D channel leaving Sky 3D to focus on other genres, within the next year.

Lewis said that although Sky aims to broadcast between 30 and 40 3D movies this year, a dedicated Sky Movies 3D channel is still a long way off.

250,000 people have now ‘subscribed’ to the free Sky 3D channel which, during the summer, will be made available for free to its 4 million Sky HD customers during the London Olympics. The channel will broadcast over 100 hours of Olympic 3D content from Eurosport.
