The free-to-air networks might not think much of 3D TV any more, but it appears that Foxtel’s still behind the technology, announcing that selected matches from the third round of the US Open will be broadcast in eye-watering 3D.
I can’t say I’m much of a tennis fan myself. Or, for that matter somebody who can watch all that much 3D content without noticeable headaches. Still, I can see how 3D tennis if properly shot could work very well. Foxtel’s release notes that it’s not showing the entire tournament in 3D, just selected matches from the third round onwards, including the Men’s and Women’s semi-finals and finals matches, as well as the Men’s Doubles finals.
