deutsche_telekomGerman telco Deutsche Telekom will add 3D content to the digital video library of its IPTV platform Entertain. The new feature will be launched in early September during international consumer electronics fair IFA in Berlin, a Telekom spokesman said in Hamburg.
At first, only 3D movies will be offered, but games from domestic soccer league Bundesliga will be added later. Negotiations are already underway with national soccer association DFL, the spokesman said. No details were given on the subscription costs.
For 3D reception, customers need a 3D TV set with 3D glasses. Telekom‘s IPTV box is already capable of handling 3D signals.
On 7 May, Telekom entered the 3D world for the first time: The telco transmitted the opening game of the ice-hockey world cup in Gelsenkirchen live via Entertain, marking the first time a sports event from Germany was broadcast live in 3D on television.
