3D hockey to be offered to Germans

World championship to be shown on Liga Total!

BERLIN — German TV viewers will soon be watching hockey in 3D in the comfort of their own living room.

Deutsche Telekom and Constantin Medien are teaming up to bring sports fans the opening May 7 game of the 2010 Ice Hockey World Championship in 3D and HD on the German telco giant’s IPTV pay channel Liga Total!

In order to watch the game in 3D, Deutsche Telekom’s T-Home subscribers will need a 3D capable TV set as well as 3D glasses.

For non-subscribers, Constantin’s free TV sports channel Sport1 will also carry the game in regular fashion.

Sport1, which is airing a total of 30 Ice Hockey Wold Championship matches on free TV, is overseeing production of the broadcast for Liga Total! while Constantin’s sports production unit Plazamedia is handling technical production in cooperation with Swiss sports rights giant Infront Sports and Media.

The game is taking place at the 76,000-seat Veltins Arena in Gelsenkirchen and is expected to attract a new spectator world record for ice hockey.
