Looks like Channel 9's mooted 3D Olympics channel will be happening — but not across the entire nation. The Australian Communications and Media Authority has given approval for Channel 9 to broadcast the Olympics in 3D in Adelaide, Brisbane, the Gold Coast, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney. Technically, this is all still a "trial", but the ACMA's willing to give Nine licences for 3D broadcasts using unassigned TV channels within those markets. For its part, Nine has to make it clear that the trials will only be taking place within those markets. The ACCC's release quotes ACMA Chairman, Chris Chapman "Viewers need to be aware these broadcasts are temporary trials of the 3D TV format and that the long term technology is still developing."
