UPC Nederland, the country’s second largest cable operator, has launched the first 3D titles on its UPC On Demand service. Customers can request 3D streams of Streetdance, Scar, My Bloody Valentine, Spy Kids: Game Over and Fly Me To The Moon.
Ziggo, Holland’s largest operator, has launched a dedicated 3D channel with SBS/Net 5last September as well as well as its own 3D On Demand service last month. UPC has decided not to carry the Net5 3D channel, as this consist of programming made in 2D and up-scaled to 3D.
UPC customers who want to order 3D movies need to have an HD subscription as well as a proper 3D television set with the accompanying 3D glassees.
