London, Apr 2 (ANI): The first ever game to be screened in 3D is going to be telecast in pubs across the United Kingdom, providing football fans with an extra dimension to their viewing experience this weekend.

Europe's first 3D TV channel is showing Saturday's lunchtime Premier League clash between Manchester United and Chelsea.

Sky 3D will be showing at least another five Premier League games before the end of the season, as well as the Football League Play-Off Finals at Wembley at the end of May.

More than 1,000 pubs in the UK and Ireland have signed up for the channel, SKY News reports.

Fans can log on to sky.com/3Dpubs to find the nearest pub, which will be showing 3D matches.

Brian Lenz, Sky's Director of Product Design and TV Product Development, said: "It's fitting that one of the biggest games of the season will be the launch of our pioneering Sky 3D service.

"With 3D, seeing really is believing, so it's great news that over a thousand pubs across the country will be able to show the magic of 3D to their customers."

Television manufacturers are planning to launch 3D televisions soon, and Sky's 3D service will be launched later in the year, providing films, sports and documentaries. (ANI)
