Rugby League To Trial 3D Broadcasts

Despite some health concerns, it looks like the 3D entertainment train keeps rolling on, with the National Rugby League revealing plans to trial the technology this year.

According to Chris Barrett at the SMH, League CEO David Gallop has held conversations with broadcasters about filming key matches in 3D this year. Rather than broadcast over the air to your non-3D TV though, they'll set up key locations around Sydney.

We already know that Sony are planning on doing the same thing for key matches of the World Cup this year, so this would make sense for the sport to capitalise on the growing hype for the technology, without having to wait until Foxtel launches its 3D trial service next year.
