Royal Nuptials Could Be Shown in 3-D

For the commoners not lucky enough to score one of the 100 tickets to Prince William’s wedding through the lottery, British broadcasters might offer the next best thing. Sky, the BBC, and Virgin are considering showing the nuptials in 3-D, live from Westminster Abbey. Sky already has had some success with broadcasting live sporting events in 3-D, like the Ryder Cup. But the broadcasters realize that few people have made the switch to the new technology in their living rooms. “That is obviously of some interest but our responsibility is to bring things everybody can see on air and 3-D has a very limited footprint,” one BBC executive said. The solution could be to pipe the 3-D broadcasts into public places, like pubs and movie theaters.
