Eurosport to bring Roland Garros in 3D to UK

Eurosport will broadcast coverage of the Roland Garros tennis tournament in 3D in the UK.

The sports broadcaster will deliver a live 3D feed from centre court at Roland Garros to BSkyB’s customers during the tournament, from May 28 to June 10.

Jean Thierry Augustin, Eurosport’s managing director of rights acquisition, distribution and development said: “Eurosport was the first broadcaster to present live tennis in 3D with the French Open in 2010 and this agreements with Sky will give the British public an opportunity to experience live Grand Slam tennis in 3D.  Eurosport has already committed to broadcast over 100 hours of 3D content from the London Olympic Games this summer ensuring an even wider variety of sports can also be viewed in this innovative way. In January 2012 Eurosport extended its relationship with the French Tennis Federation for a further three years to reinforce its position as the leading live tennis channel in Europe.”

Last month Eurosport revealed that it would provide 3D coverage of the London Olympic Games, which will also be carried by BSkyB.
