Eurosport has announced plans to broadcast live 3D coverage of French Open Tennis later this month, following last year’s successful debut.
Under a tie-up with Panasonic and Fédération Française de Tennis (FFT), the European sports broadcaster will beam live 3D coverage from Roland Garros 2011, which runs from May 22 to June 5.
The coverage will be made available in Panasonic retail outlets across Europe, just as it was for Eurosport’s debut 3D broadcast at last year’s French Open.
However, the 2011 coverage will also be beamed direct to living rooms in selected territories. Swisscom has signed up to offer the content in Switzerland, while Canal Digital will bring it to Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland. However, there are still no plans as yet to bring the coverage to Sky’s 3D channel in the UK.
