CBC to broadcast hockey in 3D

In Canada on September 29, 2010 at 14:06

Hockey Night in Canada is going 3D with two special broadcasts this winter.

CBC says it will air high-tech takes on battles between the Montreal Canadiens and the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Canadiens against the Calgary Flames.

The digital broadcasts will air Dec. 11 and Feb. 20, 2011, with the second broadcast taken from the Heritage Classic, an outdoor game at Calgary’s McMahon Stadium.

Hockey fans will require a special 3D TV and glasses to view the games.

It’s still unclear which TV providers will offer the CBC’s 3D signal to customers.

The CBC aired a 3D documentary, Queen Elizabeth in 3D, earlier this month, although that broadcast appeared on the main network and did not require a special 3D TV.

The CBC also aired two World Cup games in 3D this summer.
