Sport1 to show boxing in 3D

German sports channel Sport1 will screen a major boxing night taking place in the town Schwerin on 4 December. The event, in which Alexander Dimitrenko will fight against Albert Sosnowski in a European heavyweight championship match, will be transmitted not only in standard-definition and HDTV, but also in 3D.

Viewers with a 3D TV set and 3D glasses will be able to receive the 3D footage via satellite on SE Astra’s HD+ platform and on Deutsche Telekom’s IPTV service Entertain. For the transmission, which will take place in collaboration with Polish pay-TV DTH platform “n”, Telekom will use its football Bundesliga channel “LIGA total!”.

Sport1 will show the event organised by boxing promoter Universal live from 21 CET on its free-to-air channels
